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...

My wife and I stayed for my 30th birthday treat of visiting the whisky capital of Dufftown. I chose Fernbank because it was a walk away from Glenfiddich, the pictures and facilities looked lovely, and the winter offer was a bargain! When we got there it was better than we thought it would be. Karen is a really great hostess... More

I stayed at Fernbank in October for a vacation turned "engagement-moon" with my fiance. Karen greeted us with a warm welcome and quickly helped us figure out our distillery tour. She called various distilleries to see if they could give us an afternoon tour. We ended up at Glenfiddich which was within walking distance. She also provided recommendations for our... More

Karen made me feel very welcome from the minute i arrived until the minute i left. She made me feel like we had known one another for years. I grew up in the house across the road from the B & B and it was an emotional experience coming home. Karen cooks a fabulous breakfast and I had something different... More

Even a week before our arrival at Karen's B&B, we knew it will be a wonderful stay, due to our lovely email correspondence and her great desire to help out with everything possible. She even arranged for us to have a spot at the Glenfiddich tour at the distillery near by, that was splendid. Right upon hearing it was our... More

Karen is delightful and welcomed us by name as we arrived at Fernbank. In a way, it was like staying with a distant relative who welcomes you with open arms, shows you the rooms, and then lets you be alone instead of peppering you with questions. So really it's better than staying with family :) She cooked a wonderful breakfast... More
