Isle of Arran Distillery

The Visitor Centre

Arran G6.jpgThe Visitor Centre, which was opened in 1997 by Her Majesty the Queen, is built next to the Distillery in stunningly beautiful surroundings at Lochranza. They offer fully guided tours, an audio visual presentation set in a mock eighteenth century Smuggler's Inn, an exhibition, shop and restaurant.

You'll learn about whisky making from professionally trained guides, enjoy the spectacular exhibition set around a thirty foot indoor waterfall and experience a little bit of history in the making.

Each tour of the distillery ends at the fully stocked tasting bar, where knowledgeable staff will be happy to give you a dram of some of their award winning products.

If you are looking for that very special gift or simply a high quality reminder of your visit to Arran, the well stocked shop can provide beautiful, unique decanters and glasswear, high quality clothing, specialist food products from the Island, together with a complete range of Arran whiskies and gift products.

Whether you are looking for a full tour and a meal or simply a cup of coffee and a snack, the welcoming staff will be happy to help.

For larger bookings, special occasions or requests please do not hesitate to give the Visitor Centre Team a call on 0044 (0)1770 830264.
