Nothing on the website to say it was closed, no sign or anything when we got there! Bit annoying as we had just arrived and didn't know anything about the area.

The owner of a B&B I was staying in reccommended this place to me and some pals. We walked in and got a drink and straight away the atmosphere was friendly. It was an ok looking establishment but we simply couldn't believe the food. It was to an exceptionally high calibre. Perfectly cooked and well presented with a fine choice... More

We chose to have lunch at this pub mainly based on the ‘Dugs Welcome’ sticker on the door. Not only are they very dog friendly, they also have good food at a decent price, so we found exactly what we were looking for! We would definitely recommend this place, and go there again if ever in Kingussie.

Came here on Friday night for dinner whilst staying in Kingussie for the night to break a journey. Having looked up places to eat we came to the conclusion that it would be worth booking a table at the Tipsy Laird; what a great decision! We booked a table for 2 at 7.30 although we'd have probably been fine showing... More
