Firstly, the Dowans Hotel is a jewel in the Spey valley. This luxurious and stylish hotel was built in 1888. The hotel has 16 comfortable bedrooms.
In addition to singles, there are stylish king & super-size doubles, as well as luxurious Junior Suites.
Furthermore, the hotel has a wonderful restaurant called “57”, showcasing fine local produce. In addition, meals are paired with Malt Whisky selections.
Secondly, Dowans Hotel is central to the salmon fishing beats on the River Spey we fish. Located 30 minutes from Gordon Castle, 10 minutes from Ballindalloch and 15 minutes from Tulchan beats.
Additionally, our guides can pick up guests and drop off for a day salmon fishing on the River Spey.
Whisky lovers will really enjoy a stay here. Because of its location in Aberlour and close to the Aberlour Distillery. Also the Whisky bar is easily the best I have ever seen. Finally, we can arrange whisky tasting sessions with local experts.
Dowans, knowledgable staff and a great team
I remember staying here with two American guests last year. Our guest asked for an “Old Fashioned” cocktail. The barman confidently said no problem. She said, you probably won’t have the best Bourbon for this as it’s quite unusual, Blanton’s. However they did, and also it was one of the best Old Fashioned Cocktails our guest had ever had.
Moreover, throughout the hotel, staff are friendly, helpful and responsive, nothing is an issue.
In addition to the hotel itself, the surrounding gardens are delightful. A perfect place to relax in the garden with a Malt Whisky
