We stayed one night recently at The Elms and wish it could have been longer. The hosts were excellent and very helpful on things to see and do. Nice room, excellent veggie breakfast and great back garden for private parking. It was also close to the square and we could walk there in two minutes. Hope to be back again...

I always stay here when in Dufftown when working in the area. After a long drive up from the south it is so nice to arrive and feel like I am going to my own bed! The Elms is a beautiful house with great hosts who look after your every need. Although it appears that they are changing over to...

Just a beautiful home. The room was as beautiful and quite huge -- giant luxurious bed, and the whole place is lovely. The host was friendly, and the location is about 1 minute walk from the center of Dufftown. Excellent (vegetarian) breakfast, and there's parking available either on the street (quite safe) or behind the place.

We have stayed at The Elms a few times while working in the Dufftown area. All I can say is that it is a perfect place to stay, and for me who is away from home alot, The Elms is like a home away from home. Thanks Eileen and Chris for being excellent hosts and looking after us so well.

I've stayed there a few times now, and there is no other place I'd rather stay. Eileen is like a mother to us. She always make sure that we are ok. The food is always very good and tasty. The bed is very good as well, I sleep at least as good there as I do at home :)

The only thing we can say is: highest recommendation to stay there! Eileen and Chris made it a wonderful stay, the house is very nice and the breakfast was a stunner - with delicious fresh fruits and several types of cheese - something we only had there during our entire stay in the UK. Have fun in Scotland and Speyside!

We tried a few B&B throughout Scotland this time and The Elms was definitely THE best.
