  • Visited many distilleries in Scotland, but tour guided by distillery manager John MacDonald was awesome! (june 2016)
  • We had a nice and lengthy tour with our guide Julie with a great tasting at the end. Recommended
  • Got there, place was supposedly open, no staff anywhere to be found, rang bell, called out, waited 10 with another customer then left. Pointless visit
  • What a personnel touch they do with their tours, and the whiskey they cask is superb. They Truely are a top notch small distillery.
  • Traditional distillery which allows you good access. It's also where "The Angels Share" was filmed.
