as a performer I travel extensively staying in myriad forms of accomodation ranging from adequate to good, but, every now and then, a stay becomes so much more! Durn House and hosts John and Sandra are an absolute gem!...the welcome, the decor, the comfort, the food, all superb and then when you don't think it can get any better...you realise you are just a stones throw from the "beautiful" Portsoy. Go there, breathe deeply, relax, enjoy, we will certainly do so again.
John, Sandra...thank you,
here's to next time!

Durn House is an elegant Georgian Mansion House in its own grounds offering luxury accommodation in large rooms with luxury en-suites or private bathrooms at sensible rates. Warm hospitality, excellent service and sumptuous breakfasts await our guests. Steeped in history, Durn House was believed to have been built in the Adams style by Sir James Dunbar of Durn in circ. 1770. The house has retained many of its original features with huge open fires, superb plasterwork, magnificent stone spiral staircase, and very large rooms.
