The Basics

Hidden away among the wooded valleys of the Campsie Fells, Glengoyne Distillery is celebrated for both its scenic location. Choose from a number of tours and tastings, which usually give you the chance to peek into the legendary Warehouse No.1, take a Malt Master tour, or indulge in a whisky tasting masterclass.

Many tours combine a visit to Glengoyne with time in Loch Lomond. Opting for an excursion means that you don’t have to worry about driving after indulging in a few drams of whisky, as Scotland has particularly strict drink driving laws.

Perfect day out of Edinburgh. Great stops and Glengoyne is a wonderful small distillery to visit. Lots of information from our lovely tourguide John (or Lord John that he wanted us to call him:))

Loch Lomond, Stirling, and Glengoyne Distillery Tour from Edinburgh
This tour has something for everyone. A fantastic castle with beautiful views of Scotland, a cute village for lunch, stunning scenery with Loch Lomond and a really interesting tour of whisky making and tasting. All brought together by our tour guide (Josh) with his great humor, interesting stories and smatterings of history and “useless facts” that could win you a pub quiz :)

Loch Lomond, Stirling, and Glengoyne Distillery Tour from Edinburgh
The driver (Rory) was great, told stories and made an extra stop at the bridges for photos. He kept us on track even though we had a couple stops take long.Sterling castle is less crowded than Edinburgh and we had plenty of time. Loch lomand is beautiful and the distillery was perfect!!

Great tour, but squashy bus

Loch Lomond, Stirling, and Glengoyne Distillery Tour from Edinburgh
We really enjoyed seeing these interesting places. Tour guide was knowledgable and friendly. It’s a long day but well worth it. The only negative is we got rubbish seats on the bus. We arrived 20 minutes before tour left and were last of 16 people to board the bus. Which meant we had to sit at the back of the bus in a row of four which was a serious squash and meant we were all uncomfortable. The seats are child sized. We would definitely book again, but next time arrive an hour early and try to board bus in time to get either single or a pairs seat.

Laughing and learning

Loch Lomond, Stirling, and Glengoyne Distillery Tour from Edinburgh
Gary, our tour guide, had us laughing the whole way. Very informative as well. The stops were a great mix with the right amount of time at each. Including a lunch stop in a tiny village with great homemade meat pies and sausage rolls, or u could have gone to the pub for lunch there. The lake was beautiful and we did a little hike around then up to a vista point. Stirling Castle was interesting and good to see. The distillery was perfect. A little intro, a couple tastes (if you add it) and a short but interesting tour of the process. Delicious white chocolate tablets in the gift shop. Highly recommend the excursion.
