Full description
Departing Edinburgh at 9:30 AM, your tour takes you west past Stirling to Glengoyne distillery. Here you will be introduced to the simple but magical process of turning barley, water, and yeast into whisky. From here, you take a scenic drive to the shores of Loch Lomond for a tasty pub lunch and the chance to sample some local beer. After lunch it is recommended to take a short walk to the viewpoint overlooking the loch before heading towards the second distillery of the day. Deanston Distillery is a converted cotton mill on the banks of the River Teith has many interesting features and produces some unique whisky flavours. After a relaxed afternoon visit here you return to Edinburgh with the stories and flavors of single malt whisky fresh in your mind. You will return to Edinburgh at approximately 6:15 PM.

Good organization and division of the day. The departure point is centrally located and can be easily reached by public transport. Roger was a careful driver and imparted a lot of interesting information. Unfortunately, we were only informed on the trip that the tastings now have to be paid extra - around €18 per person and tasting (2 pieces). You should communicate that beforehand. But otherwise - great!

What can I say, the day was excellent from start to finish. The tours were so informative and the distillery’s were great. But for me, the day was made possible by the excellent Kevin, our tour guide and bus driver. His knowledge, humour, information, music knowledge and track list just made it fantastic. Rabbies tours are great and having Kevin as a tour guide is the icing on the cake. I will be back and I hope to have Kevin as my tour guide again. Thank you Kevin for an awesome experience, you are a great person.

Glengoyne visit was amazing. Great tour guide, well explained, great demonstration and fantastic whisky. This was the best part of the tour. Deanston was more of an industrial distillery, not so great experience than Glengoyne. The tour worth it price and a great experience. The van was clean and comfortable.
