Wonderful B&B, modern, clean and warm. Betty and Ian are wonderful hosts and were very helpful with anything we needed including booking us a table at a restaurant. Very quiet location but great for doing the Highland Whisky trail. Very convenient for Huntly and only 40 minutes from Elgin. Ians cooking is fantastic ! Breakfasts were amazing ! Very friendly...

Situated not far from Dufftown and right in the midst of the Speyside Whisky trail, I was fascinated by the number, and sheer enthusiasm, of so many TA reviews in respect of this micro Shangri-La. In reality it did not disappoint! Our hosts, Ian Sharp and his wife Betty made us feel welcome and right at home from the very... More

Ian was a great host and an even greater chef. We had dinner here twice and the food was outstanding (get the sticky chilli shrimp, great!). Staying here... More

In June 2013 we spent a week in Scotland. During the course of this week we stayed at quite a few good and decent B&B places, but none of them was like this one. Castleview is just a couple of miles away from Dufftown, so we chose this place for the night before our Glenfiddich Distillery tour. The house is... More

This was my first time staying at a bed and breakfast, and I couldn't have asked for more. Ian and Betty were gracious and welcoming hosts, and their knowledge of the area and tips for what to do essentially planned our entire trip! Without their help, my boyfriend and I likely wouldn't have found all of the lovely gems of... More
