First tour of a distillery in Scotland! Loved it, and learned so much! Super friendly staff! The scotch was fabulous. Can’t wait to go back again sometime soon.

Not a scotch drinker, but husband is. However, the tour was really great and our guide was very entertaining. Being such a small distillery, it's a much more intimate tour than the larger ones. We really enjoyed ourselves.

This was the best £10 I've spent in a while. You get a very well constructed and informative tour (lasts approx.1 hr.), a souvenir glass and a Scotch tasting upon completion. Our tour guide, Paul, was amazing! You also get a £5 off coupon should...More

You do not have to do it, but I recommend it - especially the Oban tour is really nice. The best DIAGEO tour.
