Loch Lomond and Whisky Distillery Half-Day Tour Verified

4.67 / 5

This half-day Loch Lomond and Whisky Tour gives you the opportunity to experience the beauty of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. You’ll also visit the Glengoyne Distillery, to take in the production, smells, and flavors of their whisky.

  • Follow the course of the Clyde, the river that made Glasgow great
  • Admire the beauty of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park
  • Learn about malt whisky production at the Glengoyne Whisky Distillery

Departing from Glasgow city center at 13:15, you’ll enjoy a leisurely drive, following the course of the Clyde, the river that has been so important in Glasgow’s history. The Clyde was once home to the shipyards and heavy manufacturing factories that forged Glasgow’s name as the Second City of the British Empire.

On this 4.5-hour excursion, you’ll travel north to Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. This area of outstanding natural beauty straddles the cultural and physical boundaries of the Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland and is now a managed and sustainable environment for visitors and local people, right on the doorstep of Glasgow.

Go for a stroll along the shores of Loch Lomond in Balloch Country Park or soak-up the atmosphere in the bars and restaurants at Loch Lomond Shores. From here you can walk to the former volcanic plug at Dumgoyne Hill and visit the Glengoyne Whisky Distillery Experience.

Glengoyne produces a Highland single malt from water that runs out of the volcanic rock behind the distillery.

On the tour you’ll experience the majesty of one of Scotland’s most famous Lochs and round your afternoon off with a dram of whisky, the water of life, before returning to Glasgow at 18:00.

    Outstanding professional and friendly service

    I’m glad I choose this tour. Toni, the guide/driver was one of the most professional persson I have met. He had a close contact with the office and made sure that guests who were running late will be on the bus. Even thoug it put us 5 min behind the scheduled trip, Toni reassured us that it will not effect our tour. He also gave us a choice between two options to view Loch Lomond and took the extra 20 min total drive to make sure we have the best scenery. He was not aware that the road the distillery was closed, but with a professional, calm but fun attitude he got us there on time and we did not miss a minute. We actually had a chance to experience more of the Scottish country. He introduced us to many interesting facts and the music choice and information around it was extra. The guided distillery tour was also a pleasant experience. I experienced a great afternoon with an intelligent and fun guide. Well planned trip, I can highly recommend.

    Our guide Ian was excellent, very knowledgable. Unfortunately his company hadn’t advised him of the roadworks on the Erskine Bridge, nor that there was a big swimming event on, which meant we had only 15 minutes at Loch Lomond instead if more than an hour which was very disappointing as we had guests from New Zealand with us. The distillery tour was excellent and even the weather cleared up a bit!

    Not much to see at the lake when it’s raining.

    The lake visit was of little value in the rain. The distillery tour was interesting because of the old school production of their products.

    Good Distillery tour. Loch Lomond is picturesque and nice for a stroll

    Guide/ driver was friendly, informative and kept to outlined schedule. Vehicle was clean and comfortable. Although I have never had Scotch whiskey, I enjoyed it as well as the tour of Glengoyne. Excellent guide, Meghan explained everything about their product, the history of Glengoyne and how it is made as well as the differences between the various aged whiskeys.

    Perfect Half Day Tour

    The Loch was lovely. I am not a Scotch drinker, but I still really enjoyed the distillery tour. Well worth the time and money.

    The guide made the tour great

    We were so lucky to have IAN as out tour guide, a superfriendly and caring local. He was entertaining, helpful and always had something interesting to say at all time. The tour itself isn’t that great, I think it’s better worth your money to do a full day tour because we felt like it was too short. The distillery is very touristy and not thaaat good as we thought. The Loch is nice but also quite touristy.

    Fascinating Tour

    Tour the Glengoyne Whisky Distillery and learn about how whisky is manufactured. The staff are knowledgeable and helpful. The process is quite fascinating. It was interesting to learn about the process and see the equipment involved. Great change to shop afterwards at discount prices.
