“Exactly what we were looking for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

While Fernbank's charm and location were perfect (just a little out of the heart of Dufftown, heart of the Whisky region), they are only part of the story. Karen's warm and gracious personality were nearly matched by her excellent food and cooking. The accommodations are first rate (spacious and comfortable) and were beyond our expectations.
Karen's knowledge and eagerness to share it was much appreciated - A B&B with a concierge!

We felt like in a 4****-Hotel. It is a perfekt B&B. The house has an excellent interior. We were in the Balvenie-Room with an separath bathroom. All rooms are generous. We loved the lounge in the ground floor. And we loved the special offer of breakfast. And we loved Karen. She is great!

Room Tip: The Balvenie-Room is recommended. It has a separat bathroom. You have to go one metrover the floor...

We were five friends from Denmark on a whiskey trip here mid-September and we had the great pleasure of staying with Karen at Fernbank House. We were greeted with a very warm welcome and right away tips on which distilleries to go to and where to go in Dufftown for a night out. Karen even helped us set up tours with some distilleries. Fernbank is a lovely house in lovely surroundings and Karen is the most fantastic host. We can highly recommend staying here. Thanks again, Karen, for the lovely Scottish breakfast. The guys from Denmark.

Great rooms, great food, great hostess. Highly recommend. The stay was awesome. We had a spacious room which has huge beds. The house has character and is located in a good spot. Karen (the hostess) was very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend staying here if you are in it near the area.
