Despite the awful weather, we had a wonderful day visiting two distilleries. Jim, the guide was full of anecdotes and history, plus a wealth of knowledge on the Whisky industry. We would highly recommend the tour.

Despite the fact that we were only 3 participants, the company still chose to take us on a fantastic 10 hour trip packed with fun experiences, great respect from here.
