The upside to the B & B are the hosts, personalized breakfast and proximity to the village and hiking trails. Downside is the configuration of bathrooms and over-scented sheets, pillow, sheets. Upstairs servicing the rooms is a toilet and sink/tub, both in separate rooms. You can find a shower and toilet together in one room downstairs. If someone in your group is oversensitive to fragrance, then this might not be a good choice. Although tasteful, the scent in the linens might be overbearing for some.
Old fashioned and comfortable B&B situated in a quiet residential street in Kingussie. The owners are very welcoming and the breakfast was amazing. Our room was not en suite. The decor is rather quaint with lots of nick nacks scattered around.
Could not be more satisfied when staying in Coruisk house and could not be more unhappy to leave on the fifth day :-) We felt really at home in this lovely old house overlooking the calm but beautiful town of Kingussie. We stayed in a family blue room, which has enough space for the four of us. The room was not ensuite, with bathroom and toilet shared with other two rooms, but we were lucky to be the only guests at the time. Though in the middle of the summer, the weather was quite cold, but every evening the bathroom was heated for us. The house is at the end of the quiet street where the town meets the wonderful forest. We were happy to watch a deer only about 200m from the house. On the other hand, you only need a short walk down the road to reach the town center. We were surprised to find a well supplied grocery shop open till late evening. Next to the shop there is a Fish&Chip fast food restaurant, which is not such a win, but a sufficient option for hungry tourists yearning for a quick snack. :-) Down in the town, near the tourist information centre, there is a nice playground where our daughters spent most of the evenings. As this was our first stay in Scotland’s countryside, we were rather surprised to see the wild hares everywhere around: in the gardens, in the lawn surrounding the playground, just all over. So, chasing them here and there was the second to best evening activity for my girls :-) As we spent more of our days making trips to some more remote attractions that was in our itinerary, we did not visit the museum, the Ruthven Barracks and other nearby landmark. But there is plenty to see and do in area, with Kingussie being part of the beautiful Cairngorms National Park. Ah, I almost forgot to mention the most delicious cooked breakfast served in the cozy dining/living room! Every evening, our hosts Joan or Derek came to ask what kind of egg, sausage and pudding/haggis we want, so it was not only tasty, but varied as well. But what made our stay so special, were our hosts. Joan could not be more helpful when we came hungry, cold and tired from our trip in the evening. She was always prepared to serve us some nice coffee or tea, juice for kids, bake our frozen pizza, or provide butter or homemade cake for us. Derek, on the other hand, transformed a simple breakfast into an event, joking, teasing and chatting with us while bringing the dishes and food in and out. It really was hard to leave Kingussie and Coruisk house. Should we be so happy as to be in the area again, we will definitely come back!…
Stayed here for one night July 2014, but left a very good impression. Warm bath was very nice after a walk in the surroundings, very comfy bed, good facilities and best breakfast we had in Scotland! Owner was friendly and helpful.
The Coruisk House b&b is a real home from home. I arrived on the evening and was immediately put at ease by Joan who showed me around and introduced me to my room, a cosy single room with everything I could need - a comfortable bed, TV, warmth and WiFi. There's a guest reception room that is comfortable and has a dining table and TV, I had my breakfast here both days and wow what a breakfast it was. This is a great little B&B which I'll revisit when I'm next up in these parts.
