About The Dowans Hotel


Set high above the village of Charlestown of Aberlour and overlooking the River Spey, this elegant country hotel is an ideal venue for shooting and fishing, and for whisky-lovers. The hotel offers free WiFi and on-site parking. The Dowans Hotel was built over 100 years ago and offers the chance for a relaxing break. All rooms are en suite and have excellent views over the beautiful gardens. Rooms at the front of the house have excellent views over River Spey and the surrounding woodland. The hotel is well located for salmon fishing, shooting and visiting the golf courses of Moray and Speyside. The Speyside region is also home to several whiskey distilleries, and many are close to the hotel.
