Glengoyne Distillery is an ideal stop on the West Highland Way between Milngavie and Drymen to learn about whisky and enjoy a wee dram.

It is worth the small diversion from the trail to enjoy a tour at Glengoyne Distillery where you can learn about and taste the "water of life". Tours range from 45 mins to 1 hour 45 mins. We recommend the "Wee Tasting Tour" which lasts 1 hour and, just as the standard tour does, includes a taste of the 12 year malt but with the addition of enjoying a taste of the 18 year old malt, too.
