I spent 3 nights here over the Easter weekend, John and Lorraine went above and beyond what I expected from a B&B. Beautifully appointed, enormous bathroom, very comfortable rooms with special touches that made our arrival all the better, located in a quiet location just off the high street in Kingussie. Breakfasts were a selection of delicious, locally selected goods... More

We would agree with all the previous comments regarding the hospitality, comfort, facilities and breakfasts provided by John and Lorraine. We would also like to mention that Slemish is in an ideal position if you are intending to walk the gentle Badenoch Way which leads towards Aviemore along some beautiful paths, particularly the sections near the RSPB Insh Marshes reserve...

Stayed at Slemish for two nights and have to say it's an absolutely fantastic place. Lovely warm welcome, beautifully furnished and comfortable rooms and a breakfast to suit everyone's taste. Real attention to detail. Owners were always at hand to offer any assistance or to offer information about the local area. Would definitely recommend.

A very warm welcome was received on arrival at the B&B. We stayed in Room 2, which was fabulous, spacious and comfortable, the bathroom... incredible! What stood out the most were the personal touches, including being collected from the station, tea and cake at check in, home made jams and breads every morning along with an array of great breakfast...

Five visits in four years and still in my opinion the best B&B I have ever stayed at. Room 2 is amazing. Also amazing breakfasts including a dram of whisky in the porridge. Looking forward to another trip.

This B&B puts some hotel rooms to shame! Room 2 is huge and has an amazing bathroom. John and Lorraine have paid every attention to detail and are very friendly. The food is really lovely. We could not fault it and would highly recommend Slemish.

Excellent homely guest house and great location for travelling around. John and Lorraine counldn't do enough for us, lots of good local knowledge and information even down to cheapest places for petrol! Breakfast was superb, you just have to try porridge with whiskey it sets you up for the day but you should leave room for Lorraine's beautiful homemade bread.... More
