This evening, I am presenting some images of a visit to Glengoyne ( glengoyn) which is technically in the Highlands but in fact is situated near Killearn in Stirlingshire and about 45 mins from Glasgow.

In the image immediately below you will see in the background Dumgoyne Hill, a 14ooft volcanic plug which is part of the Campsie Fells from which a burn ( stream) supplies Glengoyne with its water supply.

This distillery offers a good range of tours for visitors.

The 10 and 17 year old Glengoyne malts are both quite flowery, unpeated whiskies with a hint of American oak.

In the image below can be found the bonded warehouses where the whiskey matures, the distillery in the middle ground and the Dumgoyne Hill in the background.

The old malting barn with its distinctive pagoda-like top.

Overall, Glengoyne offers a good value tour and fits in nicely with a day tour of the Trossachs from Glasgow
