Quality accommodation in the heart of the Highlands
Built in 1892, Fernbank House is the former Victorian property of James Watson & Company. The wine & spirit merchants housed their Customs and Excise Manager at Fernbank to keep a close eye on the activities of Parkmore Distillery opposite.
Sadly closed since 1931, it is rumoured that that the water source became unsuitable for whisky distilling; this along with hefty tax levy’s imposed means that today the buildings, whilst well maintained, are only used for storage by the Edrington Group.
Now a family home, Fernbank has opened its doors giving guests, the opportunity to be part of Dufftown - the Malt Whisky Capital.
Come and stay in four star bed and breakfast accommodation in Dufftown..
