"Glengoyne Whisky Distillery tour/tasting" Glasgow Off The Beaten Path Tip by stevieUK

Glasgow Off The Beaten Path: 88 reviews and 170 photos

Pleasant 40mins or so bus trip from the centre of Glasgow. Probably quicker than the trip to Auchentoshan (technically the closest distillery but the bus stops everywhere). Glengoyne is more picturesque than Auchentoshan, being at the edge of the Campsie fells and with a glen at the back containing a pond and waterfall. That plus the nice little shop make it the better option if you just choose the one - those personally I'd get both in if you can. Basic tour with dram is about a fiver. Video at the start and the walkaround was kept light and interesting. We opted for the tasting tour option (no one else went for this) which added in the posh glasses and armchairs of the club room as you sampled a few older drams plus getting to see the blending room (worth the moeny I felt). In short an attractive distillery a short bus ride from Glagow which puts on a good show with some good whiskies included to boot.
