We had a fantastic week in Sundowner cottage with beautiful weather. Julie and John are so friendly and welcoming - they are always around if you need them and we could help ourselves to their home grown produce. The cottage was so lovely and had everything you need and more. There was fresh baked bread and a bottle of wine...

We stayed in July for a week and had a fantastic time and only downside was it wasn't long enough. There are plenty of amazing walks and fishing close by and we ventured further afield to Glenfinnan and the silver sands of Morar which is a must on a summer's day. Would recommend Creag Meagaidh nature reserve that has walks...

We felt like VIPs during breakfast, with all the care and fresh delightful food Julie made for us. We went there by train, John picked us up and brought us back to the station, so kind! We stayed in the Dairy room,...

Had a very warm welcome and comfortable stay in the Dairy Room with Julie and John. Fantastic breakfast particularly the pancake, home made bread and preserves. The room is wonderfully spacious and relaxing with lots of character. Really great stay and certainly recommend.

We both enjoyed our 3-night stay at Ruthven Steadings very much. It was excellent, with a very large bedroom (The Dairy Room), a triple-sized bed, fresh milk provided each day in a little jug, chocolate nibbles in the bedroom, and so many other features I can't list them all. Julie was very helpful and made us feel very welcome. We...
