My brother and I stayed here with a couple of friends from Germany. We were on the Whisky Trail and the Fournet is well located for lots of distilleries. There are also a couple of good pubs for whisky and beer just round the corner. One is also a good restaurant. We weren't sure quite what to expect of Fournet... More

My first impression was the strong smell of cat urine in the common areas. Alison has a few cats, and while they stay mostly confined the smell permeates. It's not so bad in the rooms, especially higher up, but I still needed to keep my windows open to be comfortable. My next impression was of all the pillows and trinkets... More

We had a wonderful stay here thanks to the helpfulness and graciousness of our hostess, Alison. She is a marvelous cook, very accommodating to our special dietary needs. Before we came to Dufftown for the first time, she gave us information on taxis and other things via email; really went above and beyond. The house has two living rooms and... More

Attracted by the colorful car in front of the Fournet House and the bright exterior I wanted to check it out! Inside I felt like Alice in Wonderland. The rooms have so many decorative things, that looking around feels like a treasure hunt. Little baskets, lamps, mirros and cushions make this place everything but your ordinary guest house.The bathroom even... More

We had a really lovely stay at Fornet House, Alison is a very welcoming hostess and a great cook. We really enjoyed the breakfasts and also enjoyed a very memorable late supper of Scottish smoked salmon and French red wine. We stayed one night in the yellow theme double room and another in the pink. Both have beautiful and quirky... More

This is a lovely place to stay. We stayed for the Dufftown Highland Games after arriving in town with no where to stay. Alison was generous and very accommodating. Would highly recommend this place.
