An excellent stay at Slemish as always, We stayed for 3 nights this time and Lorraine and John were very accommodating of our early breakfast requests, drying our golfing gear and the food and room were excellent and spotlessly clean. We always enjoy our trips here.

I cannot add much more about how good Slemish B&B is and how welcoming Lorraine and John are - it has already been detailed by many other reviewers but I can confirm the sentiments remain accurate and this is THE place to stay if you visit Kingussie. The facilties are excellent. The porridge for breakfast was the best I have... More

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...
