Visit Auchentoshan Distillery
Around 20 miles from your accommodation at Loch Lomond Waterfront, Auchentoshan Distillery is a Scotch whisky distillery to the south east of Loch Lomond, near Glasgow. Pronouced “Och-en-tosh-en”, the Gaelic name means “corner of the field”. This is a great local attraction, offering whisky tours and experiences in Scotland.
Dating from 1823, this lowland distillery produces an unusual triple-distilled single malt whisky with a smooth and delicate flavour. Most whisky in Scotland is distilled twice, but Auchentoshan insist on a third distillation, which helps create its signature taste. The whisky then matures in a sherry, bourbon or wine cask.
Things to do at the distillery
At Auchentoshan Distillery, you can visit the gift shop and enjoy a tour. Where you’ll discover more about the whisky-making process. You can also take part in masterclasses and ‘bottle your own’ experiences.
There are several Auchentoshan tours to choose from. On the Auchentoshan Experience, visitors are taken on a tour of the distillery, followed by a tasting of four different single malt whiskies. While the more extensive Ultimate Experience includes access to hidden parts of the distillery and a sampling straight from the cask! Daily Masterclasses are also on offer, where visitors will learn more about the making of Auchentoshan.

The most perfect day'The Most Perfect Day and The Most Perfect Venue! Where to start, I always knew I wanted to get married at Loch Lomond, just had to find the right venue and I was blown away with what The Waterfront had to offer. We got married in the conservatory due to typical Scottish Summer in July it decided to rain on our wedding day. I had my heart set on getting married outside on the loch so I thought I would be disappointed, however I am actually glad it rained in the morning, because it meant we got married in the...
My stay will never be forgotten'Just wanted to say a very big thank you for my wonderful stay, I have no words to describe the incredible comfort I had at the Cawdor Diamond Lodge, I just checked out today this morning from lodge 5, I do not agree that your lodge is a five star if I could I would call it a 100 star lodge. From start to finish, my stay at the lodge will never be forgotten it's special and unique and an amazing experience'
Couldn't ask for a better day'We wanted to thank you so very much for all the hard work which went on behind the scenes both in the lead up to, and on the day of, our wedding. We could not have asked for a better day. Everything was exactly how we wanted it to be and a lot of that is down to all the hard work of Sheena and your staff. We have had so many compliments about how much everyone enjoyed our wedding.'
Breathtaking views'Where to start! We chose the waterfront for our wedding because of the absolutely breathtaking views, location and surroundings. You can't put a price on a view like that. We were planning a small intimate wedding for 28, mid week at the waterfront and living all the way down in Kent, organising could have been so difficult if it wasn't for Sheena the wedding coordinators help.
