Another very enjoyable stay at The Anderson. We have family in the area and stay here now and again. We really enjoy staying at The Anderson. Jim and the staff are always attentive and accommodating. The rooms are comfortable and a little quaint. The Anderson's cuisine is excellent. A very wide choice of interesting dishes at reasonable prices make dining... More

We arrived about midnight after a much delayed flight to be welcomed by helpful staff who were very keen for us to sample what the bar had to offer. We were equally keen. excellent breakfats and restaurant meals, though the whisky bar was where... More

I spent 10 Days Driving throughout Scotland Edinburgh -St. Andrews-Fortrose-Elgin-Dufftown-Inverness-Loch Ness-Glencoe back into Edinburgh. The Anderson was hands down my best experience in Scotland. The location of The Anderson is perfect if you are looking to travel to multiple places through the north of Scotland and want one place to come to for a comfortable nights sleep. The Anderson offers... More

Thursday night we both attended the quiz at the Anderson which was great fun and we were both made very welcome as with all previous occasions. Tonight we had a meal which was of a very high standard as with previous meals that we have enjoyed. As a beer drinker the choice is very good. If I had a minor... More

It is no wonder the Anderson has won awards, what a wonderful place. From the moment we walked in we felt welcome and at home. Accommodation - the room we stayed in was superbly decorated in 'vintage shabby chic style' and the bed was super comfy. Food and drink - apparently there are over 240 whiskies to try...we only managed... More

We love staying at Fortrose/Rosemarkie for our holidays and we regularly visit the Anderson while we're there. The food is fantastic and locally sourced including the drinks. The staff are friendly and the hosts (from USA) are sociable and helpful. Booking for meals is always essential because it's full to the brim by six........enjoy

We didn't stay at the Anderson, but had drinks and dinner. Lovely atmosphere and very friendly staff. The selection of beers was amazing - very well kept with a couple of hundred Belgian beers and around 300 different whiskies to choose from. The food was also very good, all home made. I wish I could have stayed longer to sample... More
