Welcome to Ruthven House and Holiday Cottages

Welcome to the Ruthven House website where you will discover your perfect Highland getaway.  Ruthven House provides excellent bed and breakfast accommodation or if you prefer something more private and secluded, we have two cosy cottages with their own private driveway. 

Ruthven House is set in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park, recently voted one of the top twenty places in the world to visit by the National Geographic Traveller Magazine.  

The house itself dates back to the 1700s, and is steeped in history with the famous Ruthven Barracks a stone’s throw away. The most famous guest believed to have stayed at Ruthven House was Bonnie Prince Charlie back in 1745. The Highlands of Scotland is of course home to many film locations, the most recently noted is the famous TV Series, “Outlander”, one of which is just 3 miles from Ruthven House!

We offer guests 4 Star Bed and Breakfast accommodation in the main house and also have two cosy Self Catering Cottages, (Creag Bheag and Creag Dhubh, carefully converted from a former steading) with their own private parking and a large lawned garden to the front. Each cottage has patio doors leading out to a private seating area. The cottages are available to let on a daily or weekly basis. For stays of less than one week, please contact us for rates. If you are staying in one of our self catering cottages and prefer to have breakfast cooked for you, you can of course come into the main house for continental or full Scottish breakfast at an additional cost.

"IMPORTANT UPDATE: Due to COVID-19, we are not offering bed and breakfast accommodation in the main house. However, we are offering short stays (one night or more) in the holiday cottages. Continental breakfast hampers are available on request."
