Gordon House

Bed & Breakfast

"The one with the purple door"


In 2017, two marginally mad Scots, Les and John, went house-hunting, and came across an old derelict pub situated in the stunning, whisky flowing region of Glenlivet in the Cairngorms, in the heart of Tomintoul in the Highlands of Scotland. 


Formerly the old pub at the back of the Gordon Arms Hotel , they fell in love with it and began the journey of lovingly repairing and transforming it into their new family home and a lovely wee Bed and Breakfast .

After much hard work and despite ongoing renovations, they opened for the first time in May 2018.

Originally a 17th century croft (cottage) and byre (cowshed),  the original walls can still be seen in the dining area. 

Not your average B&B, Gordon House, steeped in history, scandal and spirituality has a warm, welcoming feel about it, enhanced only by the hospitality of the hosts, who will do their best to ensure your stay feels like a home from home. 

Tomintoul is on the Snow Roads, near the Lecht Ski Centre and part of the Speyside Way, with  Balmoral Castle and all the major distilleries within driving distance, making Gordon House ideally situated for walkers, cyclists, bikers, skiers, drinkers,  tourists, and travellers.
