The Glengoyne distillery is arguably the most beautiful distillery in all of Scotland. From the city of Glasgow, you just need to travel for 40 minutes via car. It’s less when you’re coming from Loch Lomond or Stirling; about 30 minutes drive.
Tour this beautiful site and gain first-hand experience of how the Glengoyne whisky is distilled to produce its unique fruity taste.
The process involves a much slower distilling time than what is obtainable in other distilleries. You can book one or any of the various tours that the distillery offers – the Glengoyne Tour, Chocolate and Whisky Tour (where you can have whisky and a matching chocolate), The Tasting and Wee Tasting Tour. There are also special tours for connoisseurs – the Master Blender Session, the Masterclass and the Cask Tasting Tour and interested participants are advised to make a booking in advance.
If guests are more than ten, they are advised to book tours in advance.
The tour also involves a private dining session for up to 12-36 visitors. The private dining is done in the distillery’s private dining room that overlooks a waterfall.
Follow the A81 northward if you’re coming from Glasgow. From Stirling, take the A811 route and then the A81 route down to the distillery. It is nestled between Strathblane and Killearn. It is just 40 minutes and 30 minutes from Glasgow and Stirling respectively.
If you’re using a bus, there is a bus station(Buchanan) that runs through to Balfron and it will stop just at the entrance of the distillery.
By aeroplane, it’s just a 45 minutes flight from the airport at Glasgow. Along M8, there are signs leading to Clyde Tunnel. Once you’re through the Clyde Tunnel follow the signs on A81 and go through till u get to Strathblane. The distillery is just 3 miles out.
