We (6 people) were for two nights and we had a very nice time there. The B&B has 3 double-rooms. The breakfast was excellent (scottisch Salomon). A wonderful garden and the people were very helpful and very nice.

We had only a night's stay, and we wished it was longer. Ian was so warm and welcoming he advised us on where to go for a late night bite after meeting us at the car with his umbrella in a light rain. The room was spacious and bed comfortable. Bathroom was quite large as well. His garden is beautiful... More

I stayed here for 2 nights and it was like home away from home. Dinner was top class, a lovely home made meal. Ian and Betty were very welcoming and made my stay very comfortable. Room was lovely, clean and comfortable with all the usual amenities available to you. I would highly recommend staying here when visiting Dufftown. I would... More

We stayed here one night on our travels along the Whiskey Trail and wished we had booked for two nights! Room was very spacious and comfortable, hospitality was excellent and the house is situated with a beautiful back drop of the countryside! Ian & Betty are gracious and very knowledgeable about where to stop and where to dine on your... More

We like to be in The Castelview Bed & Breakfast very much. Excellent breakfast and dinner. We stayed two nights and were really sad when we had to leave. Very freindly hosts. There is lots to do in the area around. Go place for different activities.

Spent two nights with Ian and Betty. Just a fantastic place. A few miles outside of Dufftown, which is a very over rated town. Soooooo glad we stayed at this B&B. Smaller rooms but beautiful gardens and a breakfast to die for. Although we did not eat dinner, others said it was very good. Ian mapped out a circle tour... More

Our stay at Castleview was the highlight of our trip to Scotland... and the best breakfast by far! Ian and Betty are wonderful, welcoming hosts - we enjoyed lengthy chats on all sorts of themes and really felt like welcome guests rather than 'customers'. The house is lovely and homely, with a beautiful garden and a short drive to the... More

Ian and his wife were excellent hosts. We arenormally not B&B people but there isn't much else in this area. It was very comfortable and we had plenty of privacy and our own en suite bathroom. Plenty of amenities but do be aware you won't find a hair dryer (common in Scotland in general). It wasn't a problem for us,... More

My husband and I loved our room. The Speyside is a beautiful area! Soooo many distilleries! Our host was slightly invasive. He talked too much. After a long day of driving and walking we would of liked a little bit more privacy. Our host only meant well though. That being said, we do however, strongly recommend staying at the Castleview...
