The vibrant and thriving Highland village of Dufftown is the ‘malt whisky capital of the world!
Situated on the banks of the rivers Fiddich and Dullan and at the foot of Conval Hills in the heart of Speyside, this small market town is a great escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
Dufftown is the central point on the whisky trail around the glens of Speyside. The town is the biggest exporter of whisky in Britain and you'll find plenty evidence with lots of distilleries around town, such as Glenfiddich, the largest of the lot.
Pop into the Whisky Museum which tells the story of the water of life, while the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival, held twice a year, is a must for all you enthusiasts!
Drummuir Castle was built in 1847 by Thomas Mackenzie for Admiral Archibald Duff, whose distinguished career included service with Lord Nelson.
The castle is a splendid example of the Scottish Victorian architectural style. The romantic roof line with its battlements, turrets and chimney stacks is dominated by the stunning 60 foot high central lantern tower, notable for its Gothic tracery.
In a beautiful wooded glen between Dufftown and Keith The Castle lies, in the heart of Speyside, Scotland’s whisky country and place of pure inspiration.
