We stayed one night in this comfortable bed & breakfast and had a very good time. We were greeted with a warm welcome. Everything was very clean and nicely furnished. The breakfast was excellent and we enjoyed it very much!

My husband wanted to tour the Balvenie Distillery and I found this B&B on TripAdvisor and filled out the contact form from the website. Karen Vilder answered back quickly. I booked 2 rooms for our 2 couples. Since this was my first experience with B&B, I didn't know what to expect. After our 2 nights stayed, here was my conclusions:... More

My father and I recently stayed here and had a wonderful time. Karen was extremely friendly and welcoming and couldn't have been nicer. The house was in excellent condition and obviously well cared for. The breakfast was excellent and prepared with care. I would definitely stay here again on my next visit to the area.

We stayed at Fernbank for 3 nights at the end of May. It's a lovely, cosy B&B with a very friendly host. The room was spacious and bright, the bed was comfortable, and there were plenty of teas, coffees, water, and sweets to keep us going. The breakfast was excellent, with a choice of a full breakfast, pancakes, porridge, cereals,... More

We really didn't know what to expect from the little village of Dufftown when we were investigating places to stay while indulging our penchant for Whisky but Fernbank House turned out to be a real jewel in the crown for us. It appears to be situated in the middle of nowhere but it is, in fact, within walking distance to... More
