Hi there, im new to the site and pretty new to whisky. Myself and a few friends would like to visit our first distillary. We want to do it in a budget so thought barn / camp site or similar.....can anyone recommend a lowland distillary and nearby accommodation please?. Any advice for a novice on distillary visits gratefully recieved.Many thanks for tour help.

Welcome to the Forum. Most folks would recommend Auchentoshan first for the Lowland distillery. The list of Lowland Distilleries would be:

Ailsa Bay
Annandale
Auchentoshan
Bladnoch
Daftmill
Glenkinchie

Not sure about visitation particulars.

Bladnoch is probably still a no go, daftmill don't do a lot of visits, aisle bay as far as I'm aware don't do visits or do they ? ,
Auchentoshan would be my choice 😊.. But not sure where you could camp, I'd be more inclined to do speyside for camping as you could probably get pretty close to a few distilleries..
