You will begin in the heart of Milngavie at the official start of West highland way. The walking will then follow the west highland way through the Mugdock country park passing the west side of Craigallan Loch. This full day journey will offer beautiful countryside with woodland, farmland and from a distance the view of the highland’s glorious hills.
The tour also includes a visit to the Glengoyne Distillery, it begins with a dram of the Glengoyne 12-Year-Old, overlooking the waterfall. You will discover how they capture every ounce of flavour before sending the spirit to the cask and where the magic of maturation takes place. Then, you will see how the whisky ages, from the difference the wood makes, to how the spirit deepens in colour over the years.
After the distillery tour you can continue you walking journey uphill around the distillery, to enjoy the beautiful views or you have the option to go back to Milngavie, with public transport straight after the whiskey tour, where the tour ends.
This tour covers around 7.5 mi / 12 km.
