We visit Scotland nearly every year, and we stayed in this B&B in 2014 and this year. Next year, we expect to stay... More

We both enjoyed our 3-night stay at Ruthven Steadings very much. It was excellent, with a very large bedroom (The Dairy Room), a triple-sized bed, fresh milk provided each day in a little jug, chocolate nibbles in the bedroom, and so many other features I can't list them all. Julie was very helpful and made us feel very welcome. We... More

Spindrift is a terrific place to stay. One of the best. Spacious, beautifully furnished with hand crafted touches, extremely comfortable and immaculate. As good as new after many years thanks to meticulous upkeep. Surrounded by the stunning Spey valley, Monadh Liath and western Cairngorms it is a super base to explore whatever ones interests. The deck is great to sit... More

Always feel very welcome here. Room comfortable and spacious with good fittings and bathroom. Breakfast very well done with excellent choices. Close enough to Kingussie but situation by Ruthven Barracks is superb with lovely walks just out the door. Plus point - parking excellent! We'll be back!
