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

I stay in Dufftown every week with my wee Lad so we can go to Beavers & Cubs in Dufftown. Karen very kindly accommodated us at short notice and we loved the experience. The room was tastefully decorated, spotless, very comfortable - as was the rest of the house. The breakfast was fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Stayed 1 night in 2 rooms. Fernbank House is a charming building with the interior reminiscent of a log cabin. Spacious breakfast and sitting areas on the first floor, 3 bedrooms on the second. Stay was comfortable and the place feels welcoming. Karen is a wonderful host who makes a wonderful breakfast. Easily our best Scottish breakfast after being in... More

We stayed here one night in March and had a wonderful visit. Our hostess was warm, friendly and just a wonderful person to chat with. She had helpful information about the whiskey tours and the restaurants in town. The accomodations were totally comfortable and breakfast was great. Would very much recommend this location!

Great rooms, great food, great banter from Karen topped off by a roaring fire in the lounch at night to heat us while we savoured our Whisky. We had breakfast and evening meal both were delicious. Tommy D

We chose this B&B on the outskirts of Dufftown the "Malt Whisky Capital of The World" for our group of male relatives doing a distillery tour, due to its location and the top rate reviews. On arrival, the owner Karen immediately makes you feel very welcome and gives the clear impression that nothing is too much bother for her "provided... More

My Dad, Father in law and Uncle in law based ourselves at the Fernbank B&B for a 3 day Speyside Whisky trip. The B&B was excellent with very spacious rooms and a fantastic lounge to relax in with a few drams after a packed day of whisky tours! Karen was the perfect host and made it a home away from...
