This would have been a 5 rating had the group been smaller, in several places it got too noisy to hear our guide (Mandy) properly. The tour was informative and interesting and the tasting was excellent.

Hello!!!! Ok, need some help booking a night or two in Aberlour in June of this year. My husband and I are huge fans of your single Malt, but our kids (ages 13 and 14) are not!!! Can you give us some advice on where to stay and if theres stuff for the tweens to do? I have been to Aberlour before but its been 20 years!!!! We'd like to stay June 9-11th and looking for a budget friendly one that we could get to by train/bus from Edinburgh and still do a tour with you all. Can you give me a few names you'd recommend?
