Dufftown is recognised as the Malt Whisky Capital of the world and with Distilleries like Glenfiddich, Mortlock and Balvenie to name a few, in close proximity, its very easy to understand the reason why. Twice a year usually during April/May and September, Dufftown hosts the famous Whisky festival which, not only is the ideal time to experience visiting various distilleries but also other distillers that are normally closed to the general public which are open for an opportunity to sample their unique creations. An ideal guide for such tours is Speysidetours.co.uk who Guarantee a unique experience in Speyside!
You can find the local Golf course which not only received acclaim from Sam Torrance for the 10th hole, but also features in "Britain's 100 Extraordinary Golf Holes" by Geoff Harvey and Vanessa Strowger. Fishing, Walking and Skiing are also attractions which are well supported throughout the area and the River Spey is one of the finest salmon fishing rivers in Scotland. Huntly Nordic and Outdoor Centre is Britain's only purpose-built al-weather facility for cross-country skiing. Skiing is available during the winter at the Lecht Ski Centre, approx 30 mins from Dufftown and at Aviemore less than an hour away.
Least we not forget the Dufftown Highland games which are held on the last Saturday of July where you can witness traditional events and the massed pipe Bands.
