  • "Hi. The flat was clean and tidy, very good as a base for exploring the area."

    There are a couple of things needed: a coatstand or coat hooks ( the area in the stairwell is an ideal place for this). A full length mirror and a hair dryer. Also, we found the table in the kitchen was too big for the space and the chairs were uncomfortable. The duvet covers and matching pillowcases were 100% polyester (might look good but very hot and sticky), luckily we travel with cotton sheets to use in hot weather.

  • "Brilliant accommodation in a historical building with a high spec finish."

    A very quiet little town, and a great base to explore the nearby areas, especially all the whiskey distilleries!

The Institute Executive Apartments

The Institute Executive Apartments reside in a Grade II Listed Town Hall conversion in the centre of the friendly town of Keith, Moray. There are seven apartments in total, each named with titles that playfully refer to the building's rich history, including: 'The Clock Tower', 'Council Chambers' and 'The Court Room'. All apartments are brand new and are purpose-built for serviced accommodation, showcasing open-plan living spaces with sleek grey and white tones; along with sharing a spacious car park (with additional parking nearby) and a utility room, for extra convenience. The dwellings are set amongst a fantastic location, with guests' amenities at their feet; a convenience shop and pub can be found less than a mile away, including the Royal Hotel, a fantastic place to go for delicious food and welcoming service. Keith is also home to an array of activities, from the Keith Kilt and Textile Centre, the only school teaching creative embroidery and kiltmaking, the renowned Strathisla Distillery tour and the intriguing Speyside Falconry where visitors can partake in a magical experience with owls. Enjoy a day out with a difference in Huntly and explore the preserved ruins of the once-glorious Huntly Castle, before playing a game of putty at the Huntly Golf Club and trying your hand at skiing or snowboarding at the Huntly Nordic and Outdoor Centre. The village of Fochabers isn't far and provides visitors with the breathtaking Gordon Castle Escape, where you can wander its grounds and walled garden to your heart's content, before enjoying a sweet treat at the on-site café; outdoors fans can enjoy cycling and hiking on the Moray Monster Trails through the vast woodlands that back onto the village. Board the train at Keith to explore the wider area of Moray and Aberdeenshire, enjoy a cultural day out in the thriving cities of Aberdeen and Inverness, travel to the coastal town of Macduff or venture into the centre of Cairngorms National Park for more outdoors delights! There is so much fun to be had with your friends and family from this fantastic set of apartments.

About the location


Dufftown 11 miles; Aberdeen 49 miles; Inverness 55 miles

The small market town of Keith in the north east of Scotland is situated about mid way between the city of Aberdeen to the east and the city of Inverness to the west. Keith is truly in the heart of the Speyside Malt Whisky Country with its many distilleries and visitor centres. The friendly town boasts good facilities with a selection of shops, hotels and restaurants and also has its own 18 hole golf course and three tennis courts! Keith is home to the original Kilt School of Scotland, the only one of its kind where traditional kilt making skills can still be seen today. The area is not only rich in distilleries but also in castles and the ruins of Balvenie Castle near Dufftown are well worth a visit as the castle has hosted guests such as Mary Queen of Scots and Edward 1.
