I can't speak highly enough of this b&b, or of the friendly family who run it! We were lucky enough to get a room here at the 11th hour when were were up visiting the area for a wedding, as another local hotel let is down. We arrived and were told the rates (average for B and B although we... More

Ruthven House is a bed and breakfast establishment which also lets out two self catering cottages. I stay there regularly on a business basis. I have used both the " big house " and the cottages and can recommend either to anyone who maybe just looking for somewhere to base themselves for making the most of the Scottish Highlands.

Had a super New Year in Kingussie. The owners of Ruthven House really put themselves out to keep one abreast of all the ongoing entertainment over this time.....from fireworks on Hogmany to the live shinty match on New Years Day.....Super accommodation in the holiday cottage with fabulous scenery and walks....Would definitely recommend.

We booked one of these fabulous cottages for a couple of days to bring in the New Year. Location was absolutely superb - local to Kingussie but yet very private. Great walks, pubs, very friendly. Thanks to Fiona, Colin and family for your fabulous hospitality. Highly recommend

Although we did not stay at Ruthven House because they were fully occupied, we were able to tour the facilities. Lovely rooms, very clean! It's very private, and it was fun watching the bunnies running around. There is a great view of Ruthven Barracks. Fiona & her family are so gracious, & spent time visiting with us. Daughter Rebecca was... More

The rest of our party had the other cottage and stayed in the B&B. The cottage was clean,... More

We stayed here as a large group in both the bed and breakfast and the self cottages for a week. It was EXCELLENT!!!! The location was beautiful, having sheep grazing just steps away was so relaxing. The barracks were just a short walk away, beautiful in the daytime but at night a dream all lit up. My husband took his... More

I have travelled extensively but I have never come across such first class hospitality! Ruthven House is situated close to Ruthven Barracks but only a short walk into Kingussie. Booking accommodation was so easy, and the welcome from Ruthven House hosts was second to none. They were so helpful and patient with us nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast... More

This was our first stay at Ruthven House having been recommended by a friend. We received a lovely welcome from Fiona and also a welcome pack of milk, bread, jam, etc. The hospitality was second to none with lovely surprises of delicious homemade cakes. We had a truly wonderful stay in one of the cottages. It was warm and cosy,... More

We just got back from a wonderful easter - a few days in one of the cottages and one night in the B&B. Lovely time in a lovely place run by really lovely people - couldn't do enough for us. Nice treats in the afternoon too! The cottage was really good - well equipped and warm and really well located... More
