Highland Spirit - a Historic Listed Building

The Highland Spirit, a listed building of around 1830, and has undergone major refurbishment, retaining all the character whilst making it a modern and luxurious bed and breakfast.  The Georgian and Victorian features include original fireplaces, sash windows, panelling, cornicing and ceiling roses.  We use authentique chalky emulsion in historical colours created by the Scottish paint firm, Craig and Rose, established in 1829.  Previous occupiers of the Bed and Breakfast have included a Mackintosh family, Grants the Coppersmiths and the Exciseman at Mortlach Distillery.  The accommodation at the rear of the building was a branch of the North of Scotland Bank and includes entrance, walk in safe, bank office and manager's bedroom. 

 

 

Karen and Alistair look forward to welcoming you to the Malt Whisky Capital and Speyside

A time that surely shall come,

In heaven itself I'll ask no more,

Than just a Highland Welcome!"
