Great place to visit. Comfortable and Karen is a wonderful hostess. Would definitely return. Highly recommended. Breakfast is fresh and cooked to order. Near Glenfiddich and Balviene. Very close to town

We stayed for 3 nights at FH and it was a great place to be based for speyside whisky tasting. My brother and I shared the Glenfiddich room and it was perfect for what we needed - clean, comfortable and importantly at this time of year - warm! Karen is a darling and really went out of her way to... More

My husband and I were her guests for two nights Her breakfasts were amazing. The amount of salmon on the eggs/salmon selection was beyond what I experienced elsewhere and... More

We stayed here three nights during the whisky festival and felt at home right away. Karen was a brilliant host, who went out of her way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Clean, comfortable, good quality accommodation and a great breakfast too - I'd stay here again

We only stayed here one night but enjoyed our stay. We walked to Genfiddich Distillery and then to town. We were playing golf early the next day so Karen packed us a to go breakfast bag. The food fed us all day. One in our party was gluten free and she accommodated very well.

We only had one night at Fernbank. I would have loved to had a chance to dine with Karen again. Her breakfast was the best we had on our 10 day trip to Scotland. I would return to her house anytime. Thank you.

Beautiful, well maintained B&B with a very warm, welcoming host who is such a laugh to talk to. Dufftown was on our travel map as it caters to 6 distilleries producing world famous Scotch whiskies. The room we stayed in was called 'Glenfiddich' which gives you a sense of the influence of the local trade. This room had two queen... More

We stayed in a family room (very comfortable and nicely decorated) whilst visiting family for 5 nights, and I have to say we were so lucky to have picked this gem. Karen is a fantastic hostess who made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived, and sent us on our way with a tasty and hearty breakfast each day.... More
