Things to do

There can be no better place on earth to sit and take a glass of malt whisky.

Glengoyne Distillery

Glengoyne has been described as Scotland’s most beautiful distillery – and rightly so. Nestled below the Campsie Hills, less than an hour’s drive from Greenock Ocean Terminal, just 30 minutes from Glasgow and Stirling and close to Loch Lomond, this traditional, hard-working distillery has been flourishing since 1833, producing a unique selection of award-winning Single Highland Malts, Single Casks and Special Vintages.

The Glengoyne experience allows you to see behind the scenes of where outstanding whiskies have been produced in a time honoured tradition, virtually unchanged over the last 100 years. The colourful characters give an insight into the techniques that make Glengoyne Single Highland Malt Whisky so unique, tempting you to sample a dram or by special arrangement even showing you how to blend you own personalised blend of whisky.

The well-stocked Slainte Mhath (Your good health) shop provides ample opportunity to collect lasting mementoes of your visit.
