My father-in-law and I stayed for four nights on a tour of distilleries in the area. Karen made us very welcome and the place was very comfortable, with a great breakfast every morning. Fernbank House is a little outside the main part of Dufftown, so dinner involves a walk or short drive to the pubs and restaurants. Karen also makes... More

Excellent B&B, very charming lady of the house. Very clean and comfy rooms, great breakfast. Karen's pancakes are legendary! Well positioned for visiting the whisky distilleries in the area. Look no further, book here :-)

We were really jet-lagged when we arrived. Karen, the owner, had us laughing in no time. Spotless rooms on quiet street. Perfect location for an early start for distillery tours. Nice breakfast. Would stay again!

Very pleasant B&B. Located near the densest concentration of distilleries anywhere. Karen was surprisingly knowledgeable about sites far and wide. She gave timely and very helpful advice ... and a nice pot of tea after a long day on the road.

Best accommodation in Dufftown. Friendly Lady owner Karen. Nothing is a problem. We go at Whisky festival time. Rooms are fine and big and comfortable. We look over distilleries and see pagoda tops from the window. You are not far from a distilleries to visit. Breakfasts are just great, warm and hearty. Plenty of it. There is plenty to do... More

We are three senior but active Canadian couples who stayed with Karen at her lovely B&B in Dufftown. It was like visiting family! Karen is very accommodating and hospitable. The rooms are large, clean and tasteful. Breakfast was excellent with choices for everyone. We highly recommend this wonderful B&B - it was our second visit and we will return again!... More

Let me start by saying I have high standards and I am very pleased to report that Karen and Fernbank did not disappoint. My husband and I have just spent the past two nights at the Fernbank house and I was quite relieved and impressed that this B&B lives up to the hype of all of the great reviews. Karen... More

Karen normally arranges check in between 5:00 - 7:00 PM, however she was quite happy to meet us and check us in at 2:00 PM. (Prior arrangement). We were met with a smile and the offer of a cup of tea or coffee. Our room was spacious and clean. The bed was super comfy. The only drawback was that we... More

A superb B&B. Tastefully decorated, comfortably furnished, pristine, clean and tidy. Terrific breakfast also (top sausages, lovely black pudding). Karen, the proprietor, is a scream. What more could you want.
