Glengoyne Distillery

Established in 1833, the Glengoyne Distillery can be found 15 miles (24 km) north of Glasgow within the Campsie Fells and close to the village of Killearn in Stirling. Nearby are the Trossachs and Loch Lomond. Taking its name from the place Glen Guin (Glen of the Wild Goose), it is regarded as the most southerly of the Highland Malts. Whisky distilling has been an integral part of the history of this area; at one time there were 18 illegal stills but, today, only Glengoyne remains open.

The distillery provided one of the locations for the film The Angels' Share (2012), directed by Ken Loach.
