My first stay in Creagh Dhubh cottage was just wonderful. The cottage is situated in the perfect location for any walkers who want to explore the Cairngorms National Park. This comfortable and clean cottage had everything I needed including provisions for breakfast....the blackcurrant jam was excellent! Thank you so much, Fiona and Colin for your warm hospitality and kindness.....I'll be back.

We've been coming for 8 years so this was yet another visit to our established favourite place in Scotland, our favourite cottage, Creagh Dhubh at Rughven House in Kingussie. Fiona and Colin are always so helpful and friendly and maintain the cottage in immaculate and sparkling clean condition. Not only this, Fiona kindly cooked us a curry for when we arrived and shared some of Colin's home made blackcurrant jam and cider with us - wonderful. The cottage is well equipped, warm and cosy, with lots of birdlife in the garden, during this visit we even saw a male hen harrier. We highly recommend! :)

We are always delighted when anyone, especially our regulars, take the time to write a review and that they still come back to visit. It is lovely to see familiar faces staying with us each year. The hen harrier is still flying around in the back field, we think he has taken up residence!! Next year's cider is currently being brewed!! Will make sure we keep you some!!

We stayed in a beautiful cottage called Creagh Dhubh. This stunning gem in the most peaceful but well placed setting was such a special place to find. The cottage itself is an immaculate, stone,whitewashed cottage which is beautifully appointed to take into account your every need. Warm and cosy, with a variety of wildlife which visits your garden to say hello. This cottage is run by Fiona and Colin who anticipate your needs and are always available for assistance, in fact they go above and beyond to make your stay perfect. Nothing is too much trouble for these fabulous hosts and their hospitality is the best we have ever experienced in the Highlands after visiting for the last 22 years. Top rated spot for a guaranteed wonderful holiday with stunning views, beautiful cottage, wonderful hosts and excellent value for money. Well worth a visit.

Everything was perfect - the food, place, comfort, nature, host... everything, seriously. I like the fact that it is not a very touristic area, which makes the place even more interesting and special.

I read so many outstanding reviews it was a no-brainer to book for our first holiday in the Cairngorms. We were not disappointed, quite the reverse. Booked evening meals for the first 2 days of our week's stay and then booked 2 more for the last 2 evenings. Cuisine worthy of any restaurant with the advantage of not having to drive back afterwards. Look at the menus and imagine them cooked and served immaculately in a lovely elegant room. Beer and wine available at very reasonable prices. Add unexpected extras, lovely chats with hosts who combine warm hospitality, professionalism and relaxing informality. It all goes far beyond what you would expect from a B&B. We stayed in one of the cottages, Creag Beag, which is comfortable, well-appointed, with views of the mountains to the North. The sheep seemed to come around to their own timetable, one always stopping to peer in at us and the birds on the feeders provided amusement . Not that we were inside much, getting out and about to walk off the excellent breakfasts. The guest book showed just how many people visit over and over again. We now know why. Kingussie is very suitable for exploring the Cairngorms, so if you are looking for a B&B in this area look no further than Ruthven House. A B&B with more than a touch of luxury and as another reviewer puts it: "exceptional hosts"
