Dufftown is a pretty small town in the heart of the Speyside Whisky district, even though the town lies of the banks of the Fiddich rather than the Spey itself. With more DIstilleries in the town than any other, Dufftown has made a name for itself as a tourist destination, with the Keith and Dufftown Steam Railway an added attraction. There are also a selection of walks and cycle rides in the area. However, it is the Whisky Industry that has grown the town, made it prosper and paid for the fine buildings in the centre.

The A941 is the main road through the town, heading north to Craigellachie and Elgin, and south east into the hills, to the junction at Rhynie Crossroads. The A920 heads east to Huntly on the A96, and such is the meandering route of the Fiddich that both roads cross the river. The B9014 also heads east, albeit more north east, up to Keith on the A96. In the past, the B9014 and A920 had each others routes, having swapped.

Heading south west from Dufftown into Glen Livet, and on towards the Cairngorms is the B9009. In the town centre, the B975 makes a short loop past the Glenfiddich Distillery to between the A941 and B9014.
