Must see if you love scotch!

A very nice way to have a taste of Scotland! My Scotch expert, Gavin, was so informative and funny. If you have the opportunity to come, do the gold tour! For £12 extra you get to taste four more Scotches than on the lesser tour! It was well worth it.

Fab informative day out

Had a really afternoon out last week with my other half. Our guide was Lachlan and he was very knowledgable and informative. Really enjoyed all aspects of the tour and the history of it as well as the tasting. Personally I think it's worth the extra few £££ to upgrade to the gold tour so you can taste all four types of the whiskey and enjoy the scenery from the bar!
