Peaceful atmosphere, excellent spacious accommodation, comfort and cleanliness . Exceedingly helpful hosts. Great breakfast. Babbling burn. We suggest that the host providing dinner on request is a really good option.

We stayed here for two nights and we should have stayed longer!! The room is spacious, clean and comfy. Ian, Betty and the two cats are very good hosts. Ian is very attentive by driving us to and from the distilleries so that we don't need to drive after drinking. It is worth mentioning that Ian is a very talented... More

Slightly off the beaten path, very nice and very quiet. Ian and Betty are lovely hosts and we did not want for anything. We highly recommend dining in at least one night. Ian is a talented cook and the meals we had were among the best we had during our entire time in Scotland. The location is wonderful with castles,... More

In my opinion there are three things that make a great B&B - the bed, the breakfast and the host. All three of them are top notch at Castleview. The Fiddich Room offers plenty of space, is flooded with light and is equipped with super comfy beds. I had to laugh out loud when I read Hobird's review, because my... More

It took a bit of finding but when we actually got there this turned out to be a real gem; a beautiful cottage in the countryside near dufftown with some really nice rooms. The owner went overboard to make us feel welcome and the next morning served a beautifully handcooked traditional Scottish breakfast. Highly recommended. You cannot beat it even... More

We had a lovely stay at Castleview. Ian and Betty were wonderful hosts who made us feel very welcome. Ian gave us some great advice, including ideas on where to eat, which distillery tours would suit us, and local walks. The breakfast was just what we needed to start our day and were waited on hand and foot. The Fiddich... More
