The distillery closest to the heart of Glasgow rests at the foot of the Old Kilpatrick Hills, overlooking the river Clyde.  Auchentoshan, meaning 'Corner of the Field' in Gaelic, produces a delicate, smooth and light single malt whisky.  The subtle aroma and flavour of the spirit is achieved by a unique triple distillation process.

A unique treasure, situated in beautiful Victoria Park in the west of the city, the fossil trees and surrounding rocks are the remains of an ancient forest, more than 330 million years old. Scottish National Heritage has designated the grove a site of Special Scientific Interest. These fossilised tree stumps were discovered in 1887 when an old quarry was being landscaped during the creation of the park. Careful excavation of the site uncovered the fossil remains and a building was erected to protect them from the elements.
