Dave was fantastic, very welcoming and helpful for recommendations. Didn't think I would be a fan of porridge, but went with the Whisky porridge both mornings for breakfast. Rooms are spacious, house is beautiful and location wonderful. Superlatives abound.

Thanks for the accolades and reassuring to hear that the porridge is as good as we like to think that it is!

Excellent stay here, very friendly, lovely rooms, good food and incredibly relaxed atmosphere Dave our host looked after us wonderfully, very attentive but never intrusive. This man is definitely in the right job. Situated within easy walk of the Cardhu Distillery, where we had the best tour of all we have had. In one word - Perfect.

Our room was large and cheery with a relaxing view of a very old church graveyard. Dinner was outstanding, served with class in front of a warming fire in the fireplace. The...

The Cardhu Country House is fantastic from the rooms, atmosphere, to the food. Dinner prepared by Val was exactly what we needed after being on the road for over half a day! Dave is a font of knowledge and has plenty of recommendations on what to see and do; so do not hesitate to ask him!

The Cardhu Country House offers superior hospitality with outstanding service and comfort. Dave & Val are incredible people. The house's location, although detached from the larger populated areas of the region, is perfectly situated just outside of Cardhu Distillery on the a beautiful Scottish hillside. The rooms are gorgeous and the amenities are above and beyond what would normally be...

Very quaint country home 1/4 mile down a small road from the Cardhu distillery. 10 minutes from Macallan, 15 minutes from Craigallachie and Aberlour. We stayed in the Glenlivet room and the bathroom was equipped with a delightful towel warmer. Breakfast was excellent and the hosts are lovely people. We did not experience dinner there as we stayed over Sunday...
