Tour Group at Castle Street, Glasgow

This morning, I collected guests from Glasgow Airport and then embarked on a tour as follows:

First, to the quaint village of Luss on the banks of Loch Lomond. Here we viewed the pretty cottages with well-kept and colourful gardens and the Loch from a viewpoint on the pier.

Next, we drove out to Dumgoyne in the Trossachs region to visit Glengoyne Distillery. Here, guests joined the 11.00 am Tasting Tour. Key product of Glengoyne is a 10-year-old  single malt which, like all Glengoyne products, is matured in ex-sherry casks.
