The Highlander Inn Hotel is in the centre of the village of Craigellachie, the heart of Scotland's Malt Whisky Trail. With 5 en-suite bedrooms in the main building and 2 additional houses 35 metres away, each with 3 rooms that share a lounge and bathroom, bar, "club room", outdoor patio, lounge, a la carte restaurant (tremendous food in both the bar and the restaurant), and private, off-street parking, it truly is a great little place to stay when visiting this wonderful part of Scotland.

Booked for New Year break with family, loved the place! Great location, staff very accommodating and friendly. The food couldn't be faulted - nor the well stocked bar. Had a piper in for Hogmanay and the atmosphere was superb. Met great locals here and the staff made a great

We stayed here with a group of friends on the Whisky Weekender deal. It was absolutely brilliant. The hotel is in a beautiful part of Speyside, ideally located for distillery visiting. The hotel itself was lovely. The rooms were clean, cosy and had everything you could need and

An interesting hotel with a wide selection of whiskies. Should note that rooms are of different sizes and standards - best to check directly with hotel if have particular needs. Can walk straight off Speyside Way into the hotel car park.

Hi I'd say fly to Inverness, get train to Elgin (either from Nairn or Inverness, very good bus service to both from the airport) and taxi it from there to Craigellachie. Keith is actually closer on the railway to Craigellachie, but getting a taxi in Keith might be a bit of a problem...no worries in Elgin though. Might be cheaper and easier to just rent a car at Inverness Airport, but I guess that depends how much of Dufftown's Finest you intend to imbibe...

"Rooms 1 and 2 have the best views!"
"Ask for a room away from the main road if possible"
"Ask for a room in the cottage next door vs. the Inn itself. It's quieter and larger."
"Rooms in the main hotel are probably best. Others are in an annexe to the hotel."
"Room 2 quiet. Able to fully open windows for fresh air. So many hotels are overheated."
US$138 - US$142 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
