My partner and I stayed here last weekend. Fiona picked us up from the station and gave us delicious home-made cakes when we go to the house. She and Colin really looked after us and made us feel very welcome. They let us borrow local maps for walking, We would thoroughly recommend them and we will go back next times...

It is difficult not to return to a place you have visited where you have had a previous lovely stay. We returned to Ruthven Barracks for a pre-Christmas visit. The hard thing is when you return to somewhere you have previously enjoyed and hoping it will always be as good. Ruthven House and the owners Colin and Fiona never fail...

Just returned after a night's stay in this lovely home. It's in a beautiful setting in the shadow of Ruthven Barracks, a short drive on to the A9 and two minutes drive into Kingussie but more importantly it's friendly, thanks to Fiona, and warm, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Nothing was too much bother and Fiona was on hand and...

Just finishing a 6 nights stay here at the B&B and I have no negatives whatsoever.

Spent another long weekend at Ruthven House, and just as good as the past. Sometimes the novelty factor wears off, but not for this holiday venue. First class in all departments, good surroundings, nice people, good value, excellent food, and just very relaxing with nothing too much trouble for Colin and Fiona.
