My husband and I went to the Ghillies cafe yesterday to have a late breakfast. The welcome was smiling and warm.

And then when we got the scones they looked like overcooked muffins.... More

Visited twice during our recent visit to Kingussie. Highly recommend the fish and chips, and the mussels. Thank you to Mike for looking after us on both occasions.

I was staying at the hotel and went in for lunch and a drink. The local beer was gorgeous and I had a light lunch, which was also lovely. The bar staff were very nice and helpful too.

Being next door to our guest house we popped in for a drink or two and found the staff to be very pleasant and friendly. Haven't tried their food but meals being served smelled very nice.

We struggled to find somewhere open in Kingussie for coffee on Sunday and were reluctant to try a big hotel but we had great coffee there charmingly served.
