    A tour bringing you two of the best things about Scotland, this journey presents a delectable brew of the Loch Lomond and Highland whiskeys.

    Finally, we walk up to pristine Dumgoyne Hill to finally visit the Glengoyne Whisky Distillery Experience. At almost 200 years old, Glengoyne is known for its one-of-a-kind Highland single malt that is matured in the Lowlands. Not only that, it also uses volcanic rock water to make the whisky, using warm air instead of peat smoke to dry their barley. One just can't say no to a dram of Highland single malt, making this the perfectly Scottish note to end out tour on!
