In Dufftown there lies a hidden history gem in local guest house, Tannochbrae. Discover more about the guest house in the latest episode of the History Scotland podcast.Tannochbrae is a place perhaps best associated with the fictional village introduced to us through A.J. Cronin’s short stories, Dr Finlay’s casebook. It was described as “a snug little village on the lochside”. Dufftown’s own Tannochbrae can be considered equally snug, welcoming and hospitable. Tannochbrae Guest House in Dufftown also has a medical theme to it, as Neil found out when he met with owners James and Louise.
