Great place to visit if you're interested in Malt Whiskey. Lots of history here too. The shop has plenty to temp you in various age statements together with lots of gifts as well

One of the smaller distilleries, but it's access-all-areas with friendly and informative guides. Nice location, easy drive from Stirling.

This was the first distillery tour we did on a trip around Scottish distilleries. Tour takes about an hour and a half. Well reccomended, photos allowed everywhere the guide (Melissa) was very knowledgeable and answered the array of questions we threw at her.

We did the tour of the Deanstons Distillery recently and found the tour relaxed, informative and very enjoyable. Wonderful history of this old mill and how it has come to produce such delicious whisky. The tour took just under an hour and was quite cheap.
