The happiest days of my life were spent with my dearest friends fishing the beautiful river Avon and staying at Minmore. Dear old Mr.Duff taking his evening stroll and watching the bats, the Canadian piper walking up the lane, the Jack Russell's sleeping on your bed!!! Such wonderful times! Drinking undiscovered South African wine and dining on hill fed lamb!... More

This was one of my favourite hotels with upwards of 15 visits over a 12 year period. But as a guide to other TA users , who may try to book in , based on the positive reviews , I have to tell them that it has been closed since January 2009. This is a great shame as the Janssen... More

My husband and I stayed here with my parents in September 2005. It was, without a doubt, the highlight of our 2 week trip to Scotland. The food was out of this world. We all still talk about it! The setting is beautiful and the family that runs it treats you like a friend. We would go back in a... More

Original home of the founder of Glen Livet Distillery, Minore is smack bang next to the distillery on the beautiful Glenlivet Estate. A beautiful but comfortable old house, it is a great location for fishing which can be done on the A'an or the Spey and walking. Lynne will provide you with a map of the estate. Our room was...

From the instant we walked in, we we're treated like we've been there a dozen times. Very intimate setting, in a beautiful part of Scotland. On learning my wife has nut allergies, Lynne, a most gracious host, ensured Victor knew immediately, so he had time to bake separate bread for her. As we had a few hours till dinner, and... More

I booked the Minmore House as a surprise for my husband's 40th Birthday, staying in the Tomitoul Suite. The room was beautiful, right at the top of the house so excellent views out of all windows. You can lay in the cavernous bath and enjoy uninterrupted views across the hills. We were fortunate to have sunny weather for the 3... More

The food really is quite outstanding (one of the best in scotland), the hosts are friendly and very welcoming (even the two wee dogs welcome everyone). There's some interesting fishing on the Avon, if you are looking for a smaller and I think more interesting alternative to the mighty Spey/Tay. The location is perfect for touring Speyside and the whisky... More

We arrived quite late in the afternoon for a 2 night stay & on arrival was warmly welcomed by Lynne. After a brief chat she showed us to our room & offered us tea which we took in the sitting room, served in delicate china cups on a silver tray & teapot .The sitting room was delightful, a typical country...

Having just finished a 4-week holiday all over the UK, Minmore House is easily, and by a large margin, the favorite hotel of our trip. Our family of four had two adjoining rooms, both of which were very spacious, bright and pleasant, with nice views. The common rooms, from the dining room, to the fireside bar, to the drawing room,... More

Minmore House is a delightful country house located on the Glen Livet Estate. It is very personably run by the owners, who formerly lived in Durban South Africa. The food is especially delectable! Don't miss the very very British high tea...which included an amazing Pavlova. Wonderful, comfortable rooms, not overly fancy, but homey and charming. Lovely bar with hundreds of... More
