Loved our couple of nights here. Everything was just perfect, big comfortable room and great choice of breakfast, home - made bread was a treat. The location is stunning and a great base for activities. Look forward to the next time!

Ruthven Steadings is a wonderful property with a nice garden for the guests to enjoy. We stayed in The Old Tractor Shed for 4 nights, a huge room and bathroom, very nicely decorated indeed with an excellent large bed. Julie is a wonderful hostess, she really spoils her guests and her breakfasts are simply delicious. We hope to stay there... More

My wife and I stayed 2 nights in the Dairy room at Ruthven Steadings and we had a superb stay. Julie & John were very welcoming and made every effort to ensure our time with them was great. The room was immaculately clean and the bed hugely comfortable. Unlike many other places we've stayed there is also good wifi. Both... More

This was our first stay at the Ruthven Steadings, and I hope it will not be our last!!! The room was huge, more like a suite, clean and well decorated. Breakfast was amazing, home made bread and jam, and that was after fresh fruit, smoked salmon and eggs! Julie is lovely, and friendly, would highly recommend .

We used this as a stop over on our way up to The Orkneys. We wish we could have stayed longer as there is so much to see and do in the area. You can walk to the RSPB reserve in a few minutes. We took our bikes ( as recommended by our host) to the RothiemurchusCentre, where ther are... More

Stayed in the old tractor shed room. Very spacious! Breakfast was delicious. Julie was both a terrific host and a great source of information. Would definitely stay there again. The ruins across the road are beautiful.

Ruthven Steadings is a superb B&B. We had a spacious warm room with comfortable beds - loved the three pillows and the sofa. Very good sized shower room with powerful shower. Good choices for breakfast, freshly cooked to order by Julie who was a exceptionally cheerful and efficient hostess. It would definitely be our first choice for B&B in the... More

Just got home from a two night stay in the Old Tractor Shed. We were given a very warm welcoming from the hostess. Our room was spacious and we had everything we needed and more! The breakfast was fantastic, we would recommend the scrambled egg and smoked salmon! The b&b was in a good location, just on the outskirts of... More

Set in a lovely situation, a 5 minute drive outside of Kingussie, with views over the ruins of Ruthven Barracks and the RSPB reserve of Insh Marshes, this is a wonderful B&B. It has 2 rooms for B&B with 2 further self catering units, all with plenty of parking. Our room was fantastic, spotlessly clear with a large comfortable bed,... More

Hi, We are so pleased you had such a good time with us last week and managed to fit so many things into your few days holiday - your visit to the deer at Laggan and the quadbiking must have been top of your list of highlights!
