Ratings and Reviews
"The coffee was excellent and the home-made cakes were truly delicious! The introduction starts with a video presentation hosted by 'Hector McDram' and was both entertaining and informative. The tour itself starts immediately following the video and takes in all the usual processes of whisky distilling. The guides were very knowledgeable and had no objection to answering questions from individuals at various stages throughout the tour. We were never made to feel hurried at all. At the end of the tour there is an opportunity to taste the products and there is a well stocked shop. All in all it was an excellent way of passing a couple of hours on a wet day and well worth the entrance fee. A great wee dram, hic!"

"Very informative! You see the real thing working and the tour guide was very informative and gave a holistic approach on the whiskey process. At the end we had a wee dram and I actually had two since the tour poured some extra ones! At the end you can exchange the ticket for a whole refund on a selection of thee bottles. Furthermore there are some highland cows and very little ponies in a fence adjacent you can admire."
