The hosts Julie and John were fantastic! Each morning the breakfast was wonderful and so tasty and Julie was always enthusiastic to offer us anything else. We loved the location for hiking and the room was soooo big! We were truly spoiled here and hope to make it back someday.

This B&B is amazing. The old tractor shed room is spacious with a huge bed and large ensuite with shower and bath. The breakfast choice is extensive and I highly recommend the Apple filed pancakes served with strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and bananas. Julie is an amazing host who gives a great welcome. Very well situated for all the local attractions.

Have just recently had three nights in Kingussie with Julie and John.. Huge, comfortable room with lots of added treats like fresh fruit and chocolates. A fabulous breakfast, again with added treats. Delightful people who enjoy what they do, which is always refreshing. They are rightfully proud of the work they have done and the refuge they have created. A... More

All the superlatives for Ruthven Steadings and Julie and John's wonderful hospitality seem to have been used by previous guests. Suffice to say all are on the mark and well justified. Just visit here if you are in the area and you won't be disappointed.
