Karen and Alistair simply makes You feel welcome and "at home". Great rooms - both in size and atmosphere. Breakfast is an event in itself: freshly cooked and well prepared according to Your wishes. "I'll be back".......... Kai (Denmark)

About
Description
Highland Spirit is a charming, historical building built in 1830 with many original features. It is the number one rated place to stay in Moray, Speyside and Dufftown and 4-star GOLD Visit Scotland accredited. It More has been refurbished to a very high standard with superb beds and showers. All rooms are superking. The two front rooms - the Exciseman and the Architect - have excellent eastwards views down Glenfiddich. The rear part was a Bank. The Bank Manager Room looks back over the rooftops to the iconic Clock Tower. Glenfiddich and Balvenie Distillery Tours are within village walking distance. Many other distilleries, such as Macallan, Glenlivet, Carhu are close. Non-Whisky attractions include Knockando Woolen Mill, Johnstons of Elgin, Ballindalloch Castle, the Speyside Cooperage and Balvenie Castle. Dufftown has its own Golf Course. Highland Spirit is perfectly placed only 2 minutes walk from the village centre yet its long driveway and large gardens give it a very peaceful and calm ambience. Less
