A very good tour, learnt loads and our tour guide Lucy was very knowledgeable and friendly! Although, we did decide that we’re not sure we like Whiskey, too strong for us! It’s a great experience to do anyway and very interesting

Nice little tour.
Didn't have to queue for too long.
We took the Silver Tour, which started with a barrel ride.

After the barrel ride.. we went in to a big room with a large screen and the guide talking through the whiskey maling areas of Scotland.

A scented card was given..which we later used to select a whiskey to taste. Youngsters under the age of 18 were offered Irn Bru. (You get to keep the glass too)

Friendly staff and very knowledgeable.
A nice little tour.. shorter than I expected.

My husband considered this place a highlight of our trip. They put you in a little train which seemed a bit corny but it was quite an interesting way to explain the history of whisky. then you go into a room with hundreds of different bottles of whisky from years ago which was great and last but not least a whisky sampling at the bar, if you pay the extra. I didnt pay as i dont drink whisky but my husband loved it

Good for whisky drinkers and those who would rather not! Good fun, although be prepared for a queue. There is also a very pleasant restaurant downstairs with an amazing display of whiskys.
