The ancient Scots used it to heal common ailments and keep warm throughout the winter. And now, Scottish whisky exports make up one quarter of the UKs international food and drink trade.
Its a fascinating part of Scottish heritage, and on this tour, you learn about it at two distinct distilleries. You visit Glengoyne, a tiny, quaint distillery located at the foot of a delightful hill. And you explore Deanston distillery, a large distillery with a fascinating industrial past.
Whats more is you blend these delicious flavours with a visit to one of the most famous lochs in the whole of Scotland at the Loch Lomond National Park.

    Fantastic tour visiting the slowest stills in Scotland at GlenGoyne and a facinating story at Deanston Distillery a former cotton mill. Beautiful scenery at Lock Lomond and lots of good stories and insights from Andy! The tours at the two distilleries were different and complemented each other well.

    Great tour, Charlie our guide made the tour even better! True professional, knowledgeable, engaging! The tour was great, only comment is at Deanston we should have had our own tour group. We got there and other folks joined us including several very young children, though cute were distracting. Glengoyne was amazing and the visit to Loch Lomond was fantastic as was the lunch there.

    My wife and I took this tour to check out the Scottish Distillery experience. The tour included visits to two very different distilleries and an opportunity to take a nice nature walk on Loch Lomond. We enjoyed the tour and the tastings, despite the fact that there was a good amount of riding in the vehicle to get to the locations. The driver/guide, William, was very good and provided good context to the visit. It was an enjoyable day and a good value for the cost.

    From the moment we boarded the comfortable van we knew we were in for a treat. Our tour guide and knowledgeable historian Graham ensured we made of the most of the distillery visits, the breathtaking countryside, the refreshing lunch break, and a few special photo stops added in! What a wonderful day!

    Eric N was an amazing tour guide who gave us all we signed up for and more! Enjoyed the whole day. The ride was comfortable and interesting with lots of facts and nice stops the whole day through. Really enjoyed comparing two distilleries in one day. Learned a lot and got to try a number of delicious samples!

    Informative and friendly and real Scottish guides, Eric and Dave! We have learned, enjoyed and drank proper whisky! Greatly recommend it 😊

    Great tour and our driver, Dave Fletcher (or Fletch) was so funny and informative. He made the tour just that much better. Both distilleries, although completely different, gave a wide variety of offerings and I took advantage of both Company stores.

    Good Whisky, Beautiful Scenery, and a great day all around. I very much enjoyed this tour and though the guide, Stevie, was a wonderful guide. I did however leave this tour with food poisoning so just be careful if you are planning to eat things you don’t normally (like haggis).
