The B&B Ruthven Steadings is an excellent place to enjoy the Scottish hospitality. Especially the breakfast with homemade bread, homemade cakes and freshly cooked eggs and/or pancakes is a culinary pleasure.

Great to be back for a couple of nights. We love it so much that our children bought us two nights B&B in the tractor shed for Christmas. A great break from work in a lovely part of the country. The breakfasts are wonderful and all freshly cooked to order. They last you most of the day!

A beautiful, quiet, well situated B &B. Kingussi town center is 2 minutes down the road and hiking trails are abundant. The room was exceptionally large and beautifully decorated. Julie was a gracious and informative host. Would highly recommend this property to any discerning travelers.

The B&B is sittuated a 10 min walk or 2 min. drive outside the town of Kingussie. Surrounded by fields, small hills and the nearby remainings of the Ruthven barracks (old fort) it presents a beautiful picture!

The combination of a really modern, enormously spacious and tastefully decorated room with the very serene rural surrounding area made it an excellent place to stay for a couple of days.
