We stayed with Karen for a couple of nights when we visited Dufftown in late April. It couldn't have been better! Everything we needed or wanted was there (including nice bubble bath, shampoos, toiletries and even a blowdryer), or Karen was quick with suggestions as to where we could find it. Breakfast was fabulous! We enjoyed the Scottish Breakfasts too:... More

Just half a mile from the Glenfiddich distillery, Fernbank is located just after the railway track underpass, and near a quiet crossroads. Look out for the small sign with purple flowers on the right side of the road, a grey double storey house, and you'll find Fernbank. Karen welcomed us warmly and showed us to our rooms. Then invited us... More

This B & B is a gem, Karen is an amazing host who makes you feel so welcome in her home. The house itself is beautifully decorated throughout and is spotless. We had the use of a lounge area with a TV for the evenings, we chose to play cards and have a nightcap with our friends. Breakfast was freshly... More

Karen is just the best. Beautiful house, warm and friendly hostess - nothing was too much trouble. So much choice for breakfast which was cooked to perfection. Karen was extremely knowledgeable about the area - we booked our stay about 7 months prior to our visit and during that period, she kept in touch with us, we felt we knew... More

Great B & B more like a home away from home. Karen the owner was there to receive us when we arrived. She is warm, friendly & very very helpful, giving us tips where to dine & making reservations at the distilleries as well as the restaurants. Small gestures like home made fudge kept on the pillow, the hospitality tray... More

Best B&B i have ever stayed at in terms of location, comfort, choice of breakfast and warm welcome. I cannot praise Karen enough her attention to detail and helpfulness was much appreciated. Especially when my pannier broke and Karen came to the rescue with a tube of no nails!

We stayed at Karens B&B in 2014 for two nights. The welcome was very nice and warm. The room was clean and comfortable and we enjoyed our stay every minute. Karen also helped with recommendations for Whisky tastings and restaurants. The breakfast also was perfect and nothing was missing. We already plan to come back to Schottland, and we will... More

Stopped here in order to visit the nearby Glenfiddich Distillery. Fernbank House is a real gem. A lovely location just outside Dufftown, but within easy walking distance of the distillery. We stayed in the Balvenie room. It was spotlessly clean and comfortable with a HUGE bed. Nothing was too much trouble for Karen and she worked really hard to make... More

From the second I contact Karen to book a room, I had a fantastic experience. she was helpful and welcoming before hand, providing info on the local area. On the day of our arrival, Karen even contacted us to let us know about a whisky tasting that evening in the village, what was an excellent experience and it was great... More

This is my 4th stay & it was great as ever. It is a short walk from the centre, but walking past Balvenie castle & Glenfiddich is very pleasant. The b&b has lovely lounge with a fire. You will not have a better breakfast (locally source ingredients) & Karen could not be more helpful. Would not want to stay anywhere... More
