Although we did not take a tour, we did enjoy a tasting that resulted in a purchase of some fine quality whisky. They also have a very nice cafe and shop and of course the location is beautiful

We called by for a tasting and a snack. Even though the restaurant was packed, we were so well looked after by Lily and the whisky was incredible. Almost had to have a lie down before we cycled on home!
