Get a taste of Highland whisky without leaving the lowlands with a visit to the Glengoyne Distillery, located right on border of the Highlands, just half an hour’s drive from Glasgow. The historic distillery dates back to 1833 and is renowned for its award-winning malt whiskies, famously distilled at a third of the usual rate and matured in sherry oak casks.
Along with its fine whisky, Glengoyne is celebrated for its scenic location, hidden away amid the wooded valleys of the Campsie Hills, with its own wetlands, beehives and renewable energy source. Visitors to the distillery can choose from a number of guided tours and tastings, including the chance to peek into the legendary Warehouse No.1, take a Malt Master
tour or indulge in a comprehensive whisky tasting masterclass.
Glengoyne Distillery is located in Dumgoyne, around 12 miles north of Glasgow, and is open daily, March – November from 10am-5pm, and December-February from 10am- 4pm. A range of guided tours and tastings are available starting from £9.
