As well as this, Dufftown also boasts an 18-hole golf course, complete with breath-taking scenery and world famous salmon fishing of the Strathspey area. Regularly in the summer months there is a Ceilidh just a few minutes walk from the house, as well as several eateries, you can all enjoy a drink with your meal. Winter provides excellent skiing and snowboarding in the area. Here, at Rooftops, you have many opportunities to explore this Scottish region and a pleasant base from which to do so.
Dufftown is situated in the heart of Speyside in north east Scotland and is a thriving and lively small town. It is also right on the Malt Whisky Trail and the old saying goes, “Rome was built on seven hills, Dufftown stands on seven stills”. There are now nine distilleries in the area so a spot of whisky tasting is a must, unless you are the driver of course! Apart from the distilleries it is easy to access the world famous salmon fishing of the Strathspey area and permits can be obtained locally. Dufftown has an 18-hole golf course complete with breathtaking scenery and guests are made very welcome. In the winter months staying in the area provides great value for skiers and snowboarders as it is only a 50 minute drive to the Lecht ski slopes and Aviemore is an hour or so away, plus The Cabrach is a ‘Dark Sky Designated Area’ which is ideal for astronomers.
