Had a great informative tour of this wonderful distillery. Daisy our tour guide was great so friendly and knowledgeable. Can’t wait to visit again when the new visitors centre is open. The whiskey tasting and chocolates fab. Excellent value for money.

Visited Clynelish Distillery recently and would certainly recommend the tour. Steph, the guide was excellent at explaining the processes and the history of the distillery. The whisky and chocolate tasting was a great end to the tour.

Clynelish was a nice experience - we visited old Brora warehouses (whisky connoisseurs will have certain sentimental feel about that), the "new" Clynelish distillery and we tasted three whiskies nicely...More
