We opted for the wine pairings with our meal and both the food and drink were exquisite - one of the... More

Just back from a 2 night stay here. We did not have dinner there, but the breakfasts were lovely - the croissants the best I have ever had.

The beautiful nature, our lovely room and last but certainly not least the delicious food Lydie (the owner and classically taught French chef) prepared for us, made our short stay a very memorable one. Everything she does, she does with passion, care and loads of skills: from her amazing lunch packages with Scottish egg, pie and cous cous salad up... More

Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff, wonderful fresh tasting food. Not a huge selection of restaurants in Kingussie, but this one is definitely worth a visit. Would come back again.

We felt we were treated as though we were special, which was a lovely feeling. The cooking was great. It was so good that I loved two of the dishes that had ingredients that... More
