Loch Lomond and Glengoyne Whisky Distillerey
Loch Lomond is a spectacular loch, the largest expanse of freshwater in Great Britain, home to over 30 islands. The Highland Boundary Fault surges right through it, making it a literal gateway to the Highlands. It's at the heart of the much larger Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park .
Let us take you around one of the most picturesque whisky distilleries in Scotland as well as venturing into the Highlands. Namely The Trossachs National Park which includes the stunning Loch Lomond.
Famous for its stunning scenery; the national park offers mountains, lochs, forests and glens across 1,865 square km. There's so much to see and do in the area, it's well worth making repeat visits.
>We will leave base after a hearty Full Scottish Breakfast,to line your stomach, and head up to Loch Lomond. Stunning vistas, many opportunities to take great photos, long winding roads and spectacular scenery. We will stop off for a refreshing lybation along with the opportunity to taste some of the local cuisine. We will head towards Glengoyne Distillery, where we will visit the shop and take a tour, if you want. We will then head to a small country resturant in Killearn for some lunch before returning back to base where there will be a sumpteous three course whisky themed meal prepared for you. Please select your choice of menu upon arrival. The following is a brief description of our main attractions.
Lowland Whisky Tour:
People often say that we’re Scotland’s most beautiful distillery. We’re surprisingly easy to get to as well – just under 40 minutes from Glasgow. You'll learn a lot about whisky here, and you'll have a lot of fun while you're at it. Visit us to see for yourself.
We do things differently at Glengoyne. We take you closer to the journey, further into the detail, and deeper into the complexity of our spirit. You’ll learn a lot about whisky here, and you’ll have a lot of fun while you’re at it.
We’re just under 40 minutes from Glasgow too – although you wouldn’t guess it from the views of the hills and the hidden glen.

We’ll welcome you with a dram of the Glengoyne 12 Year Old, overlooking the waterfall and the secret glen where it all began. Then we’ll show you how hard we work to create the bold flavours in our whisky.
WEE TASTING TOUR
Like all our tours, we’ll welcome you with a dram of the Glengoyne 12 Year Old – but at the end there’s also a Glengoyne 18 Year Old waiting for you. We’ll guide you through the tasting of each whisky, giving you an introduction to the flavours and aromas.
GOLD MEDAL PARADE
Like all our tours, we’ll welcome you with a dram of Glengoyne 12 Year Old – but you’ll finish with three of our other gold-medal winners, swirling and nosing your way through the differences in taste and colour.
WHISKY & CHOCOLATE TOUR
Like all our tours, we’ll welcome you with the Glengoyne 12 Year Old – but end with a chance to match two of our whiskies with four award-winning chocolates from Iain Burnett, The Highland Chocolatier.
MALT MASTER TOUR
We’ll welcome you with the Glengoyne 12 Year Old and an incredibly in-depth tour of the distillery – a chance for our guides to really share their knowledge. Then it gets extra special – you create your own single malt in the Sample Room.
You can’t do this anywhere else in Scotland.
NO.1 WAREHOUSE TOUR
Like all our tours, we’ll welcome you with a taste of the Glengoyne 12 Year Old and an incredibly in-depth tour of the distillery. But where others look through the locked iron gates of Warehouse No.1, we take you behind them, armed with a dipping dug – a traditional whisky sampler.
