Discover Malt Whisky Small-Group Day Tour from Edinburgh

*From 1st April 2023, admission to Glengoyne and Deanston Distillery is included in tour price. 

Your tour takes you west past Stirling to Glengoyne distillery.

The tour here introduces you to the simple but magical process of turning barley, water, and yeast into whisky.

From here, you take a scenic drive to the shores of Loch Lomond for a tasty pub lunch and the chance to sample some local beers. After lunch we recommend a short walk to the viewpoint overlooking the loch before heading towards the second distillery of the day.

Deanston Distillery* is a converted cotton mill on the banks of the River Teith that has many interesting features and produces some unique whisky flavours.

After a relaxed afternoon here you return to Edinburgh with the stories and flavours of single malt whisky fresh in your mind.

*Itinerary and distillery visits are subject to change.


**Glengoyne Distillery You couldn’t imagine a more idyllic distillery. It sits at the foot of a beautiful hill and houses wonderful copper stills.

Loch Lomond National Park Admire the views and take postcard-perfect photos to share with your friends and family.

Deanston Distillery This impressive distillery generates its own hydroelectric power and produces delightfully sweet and smooth whisky.

**Please note that Glengoyne Distillery will be observing their Silent Season between 28 June 2023 and 10 August 2023. During this period, visitors will instead do the 'Glenside Tour and Tasting at Glengoyne Distillery - Silent Season alternative' experience. The duration and cost remains the same, however the tour will be a guided walk around the grounds of the distillery instead.
