We stayed three nights at Ruthven Steadings as part of a recent trip to Scotland and we could not have wished for more. Our room was spacious, warm and comfortable. Breakfast was fresh, varied and delicious, with a choice of all sorts of options (including a very lovely smoked salmon & scrambled eggs, or fab venison sausages). A highlight was... More

My husband and I stayed in The Old Tractor Shed on the 26th and 27th of October 2015. This B&B was even better than expected. Julie was very warm and welcoming and our room was amazing. Huge, spotlessly clean and very very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious- both the cooked option and the baked apple pancake. Ruthven Steadings is in a... More

We stayed at the Ruthven Steadings for our Honeymoon in the Cairngorms. Julie was absolutely fantastic at showing us to our room and how everything works (something that a lot of places take for granted that people will know). The cottage we stayed in (Sundowner) was clean, had everything we needed in order to exist for the week. The location... More

Seeing is believing this wonderful cottage owned by Julie and John. Everything in the cottage you could want and their hospitality second to none, fantastic welcome pack. Out and about, the area is ideal for anyone interested in walking and wildlife. There is easy access to the Cairngorms where the scenery is stunning. The village of Kingussie is only a... More

We choose the B&B for two nights on our way to the north-west of Schotland, but regretted leaving so soon. Julie and John are very warm persons who did their utmost to make us feel at home and comfortable, from providing hikingmaps and anti-mig-spray to offering a "real good breakfast" with homemade everything-you-want. We hope to come back some time... More

Choose this accommodation after looking on the Internet and we struck gold. Everything about it was just perfect. Julie and John were so helpful without being intrusive and the fresh vegetables they gave us just added to the pleasure of our stay. It is little wonder that they get booked up so quickly. No doubt we will return to this... More

It has been the second time we have visited Julie and her husband, actually their B&B was the main reason to return to Kingussie. We`ve been staying in the Dairy Room for two nights and enjoyed the very spacious and excellent room with the luxurious bathroom and a super-sized bed.
