This impressive, baronial-style mansion provides a magnificent setting from which to tour the Moray coast.

This magnificent, baronial-style mansion provides a stunning setting from which to tour the Moray coast and the Grampian Highlands. Standing within its own spacious grounds on the edge of Keith, on the Whisky Trail, it offers guests supreme comfort and the chance to savour the elegant lifestyle of a bygone era. There are fine antique furnishings selected to blend in with the sumptuous surroundings, which include a huge mahogany dining table, and even a grand piano, making this an unforgettable ‘live like a laird’ experience. Built in 1892, a room accommodating a full-size snooker table also features, where guests can enjoy a friendly game. The colourful and extensive gardens include formal herbaceous beds, a walled kitchen garden, vinery, greenhouses, orchard and sweeping lawns, providing space to relax and unwind in gloriously tranquil surroundings.
Isla Bank is only 10 miles from the Moray Firth, with its beautiful sandy beaches and charming fishing villages to explore, and is renowned as one of the best places in Scotland to view dolphins at play. To the south lies the stunning Cairngorm mountain range, stretching for fifty miles and offering outstanding climbing, hill walking and winter skiing. The area also boasts superb fishing on the Spey and Deveron rivers, and an 18-hole golf course and swimming-pool just a mile away. Lying in the heart of distillery country, Dufftown, the acclaimed ‘Malt Whisky Capital of the World’, is found just a short distance away. Here the Glenfiddich Distillery produces one of Scotland’s lighter and sweeter varieties of fiery amber spirit, bottled on the premises, and offering visitor tours. Behind the distillery, the Stewart stronghold of Balvenie Castle survives as a ruin, whilst several other castles abound – one of the smallest and prettiest in the area at Huntly, 10 miles away, which is also the birthplace of children’s author George MacDonald. There are many fascinating places to visit in an area with a long and colourful history. Aberdeen and Inverness airports are both an hour by road or rail, making this a very convenient holiday location. Shop 1 mile.

    Ideal size and location for a three generation family group, six adults and five children. Ideal for the children to play hide and seek while the adults enjoyed a game of snooker. There were lots of places to visit in the area and the orchard in the property allowed the kids to pick apples to make a crumble. It was nice to have Pauline on site for help and advice about the local area and unique suggestions to entertain the children.

    The kitchen is small for such a big house and missed the hostess trolley that used to be there.

    The kitchen and the equipment for that size of house far to small. for the price there should be more bathrooms.

    My family and I all met up here for a week. The ample room was a haven for the kids to run around in and with so many rooms relaxation was still possible. The snooker room was a great place for my brother, father, nephew and I to retreat to and sample the famous local whisky and the lounge was always a warm place to be together helped by the lovely open fire. I must say that Pauline was a real selling point as her friendliness and manners were professional and much appreciated. It was so good talking to her her learning about the history of the house and area. I would highly recommend this place to anybody :-)

    Absolute credit to Pauline and family for the up keep and presentation of this lovely old Mansion. Our stay wash really amazing and comfortable, very warm and cosy. Every night we had a different theme for dinner at the fantastic huge dining table.Perfect location to explore the Moray coast and Speyside Whiskey trails. Truly one of the most beautiful areas in the country.The only downside was the size of the kitchen, as was mentioned in previous reviews. We we're lucky that our group was very well organised. The other point i would say is that the snooker table has seen better days and really needs recovered and new cues etc bought. All in all i highly recommend Isle Bank house to family and friends, very child and dog friendly. Will definitely stay again.
