The Auld Alliance is a lovely place. The owner Lydie really looks after her guests well. If you stay here or near Kingussie make sure you go for an evening meal here. The food is fantastic. Kingussie is very much a place for "pub grub" and Lydie offers something far more upmarket and tasty. It was my birthday whilst we... More

We stayed at this property for 3 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. We were traveling with our adult son and had two rooms, both of which were beautifully decorated and comfortable. The small bottle of Whisky provided was a lovely touch. This beautifully maintained property was classic and comfortable and worth going to but the icing on... More

It was perfect, the location, the food, the costumer service. The house is beautiful and they care about details. The town is lovely abd the people are friendly. It is very easy to go to nice walks around the national park.

This restaurant is truly wonderful, myself and my husband haven't had food like this since we visited France. The whole experience was perfect from our drinks in the sitting room (fantastic wine and gin choices from our lovely hosts) to our wonderfully well put together menu. It's just so obvious that there is a real love and passion for food... More

From the moment we arrived the ambiance was exquisite. We were greated by a most friendly member of the restaurant, nothing was too much trouble. We were shown to a beautiful... More

We were staying in the area as a house party of 15 and booked to have dinner on our last night at the Auld Alliance in Kingussie. We had a real treat, being welcomed by two lovely members of staff on arrival and ushered into a beautiful lounge in this lovely early Victorian house. After drinks we were invited to... More

On the whole we had an ok time at the Auld Alliance. There were some really nice touches that we really appreciated like the whisky refills in our room and the lovely home made biscuits. However the wifi was hard to pick up and we arrived early and felt very uncomfortable to have done so. The rooms are comfortable but... More

What a great find! There is a friendly welcome awaiting you here from the staff at the Auld Alliance. Our room on the ground floor was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. Additional treats included homemade biscuits, bottled water and 'a wee dram' on top of the tea and coffee-making facilities. The large lounge had a roaring fire and the drinks... More

We returned to the Auld alliance for the Bread making class, and were delighted to find that it hadn't really changed, the same past times old world elegance, which, whilst it may not appeal to everyone if they prefer the more modern themes, was just as we remembered and enjoyed. Couple this with the excellent and I really mean excellent,... More

Stayed 3 nights at the Auld Alliance guesthouse with my partner, as a getaway from the city. Easy to get to from Kingussie train station and what a beautiful location! Stayed in an upstairs room with a view out over Ruthven Barracks and the Spey Valley. Breakfast was delicious and the croissants were freshly baked each day. We had a... More
