At Highland Spirit we have 3 spacious individually themed bedrooms which are orientated around the Scottish history of the house with the accommodation being typical Georgian and Victorian upper-middle class. We have used authentic period styles, colours and designs (such as those of Robert Adam and Charles Rennie Mackintosh). Rooms are situated on the first floor accessed via the original staircase, giving views eastward down the valley of Glenfiddich or across the rooftops to the iconic Dufftown Clock Tower. All the rooms are super king ensuite. The beds are top end hotel quality so the rooms can be configured with twin or superking bed. The power showers are from the renowned German Company - Grohe. We use Historical Craig and Rose Paints - Established by two young Scottish entrepreneurs in 1829 the firm's reputation for quality spread quickly and they became the paint of choice for iconic structures such as the Forth Bridge, as well as many other country houses, palaces, cathedrals, public buildings, hotels, guesthouses and bed and breakfasts. They also have supplied paint for the Royal Yacht Britannia.
All rooms include:
The Exciseman bedroom looks down to Dullan Water and the famous distillery of Mortlach which was built in 1823 and is still in operation today. It is double aspect room and you will have a view of the distillery pagoda, warehouses, the former proprietor's and manager's house and then further eastwards over Glenfiddich. The room has a well appointed ensuite shower room with stain glass window.
The house underwent some 'modernisation' in the 1920s and this is reflected through the style of the famous Scottish architect and designer Charles Rennie Macintosh. The bedroom is completed with handmade wooden Charles Rennie Mackintosh inspired furniture and decor. The room has lovely long views eastwards over Glen Fiddich with magnificent sunrises in the morning. The ensuite has a large luxury walk-in shower.
The rooms of the west wing of the house were formerly a branch of the North of Scotland Bank. The large bedroom is double aspect with a view westerly over the rooftops to the Dufftown Clock Tower. This wing also has its own large ensuite with luxury walk-in shower, double sinks and fireplace. The sash window allows a southerly view over the gardens towards Dullan Water.
