There are plenty of amazing walks and fishing close by and we ventured further afield to Glenfinnan and the silver sands of Morar which is a must on a summer's day. Would recommend Creag Meagaidh nature reserve that has walks... More

We felt like VIPs during breakfast, with all the care and fresh delightful food Julie made for us. We went there by train, John picked us up and brought us back to the station, so kind! We stayed in the Dairy room,... More

Had a very warm welcome and comfortable stay in the Dairy Room with Julie and John. Fantastic breakfast particularly the pancake, home made bread and preserves. The room is wonderfully spacious and relaxing with lots of character. Really great stay and certainly recommend.

My partner and stayed at Ruthven Steadings on in mid August for 2 nights, Julie the owner can not do enough for you from arrival to departure, everything is provided for you even if you have forgotten something and I don't think I have stayed in somewhere so clean and spotless and well maintained. There are 2 spacious rooms one... More

We spent another four nights in the Dairy Room in June, with four more booked for next month, which must add up to about 12 visits so far. Anyone would think we liked staying here! Wouldn't go anywhere else in this region now that we have found Ruthven Steadings! Julie & John looked after us very well and made us... 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
