Excellent tour and at £5 pet head great value for money. Only criticism would be kids were £2.50 each but got nothing really for it. A can of juice and maybe small gift to take away would be a good idea. Would enhance their experience...More

We had a wonderful tour led by Bruce. He had lots of really fun anecdotes and was very knowledgeable and passionate. Lots of beers to sample too. Well worth a visit!

Local brewery at its best. Nice tour with Malkay who, despite what he says, has loads of knowledge and information to give. The beer itself was wonderful and you get to taste so much of it. For £5 you get so much for your money...More

It is a short tour but very good! Walkable from Aviemore town centre.
