near Strathblane.  About 15 minutes from Appletree. One of the oldest distilleries and still working.  Appears in a lot of Glasgow based film and tv dramas including Still Game and The Angel’s Share.  Produces some fantastic whiskies.  One of our favourites!

Deanston Distillery 

near Doune. About 25 minutes from Appletree.  This is another interesting one.  Formerly a factory it was converted to a distillery in the sixties.  Although one of the newer distilleries it is a very interesting tour and its product is excellent.
Combining a visit to Doune Castle (see above) and near-by Deanston Distillery makes a great day out!
