The warmth of Des and Sinead’s hospitality makes this small hotel an absolute winner. Even their dog, Timmy, gives a chivalrous welcome. Everything they do is done with love and care. Des cooks delicious dishes in the evening and Sinead bakes light scones, mouth watering cakes and makes the best scrambled eggs for breakfast I have ever tasted. Plenty of fresh fruit if wanted at breakfast too! Very clean everywhere and such a comfy bed. They had only just taken this hotel over when Covid struck but they are full of enthusiasm for the changes they want to make. They have the eye and the touch to make this a very special place indeed. We are excited to return to see the results.

We had a wonderful 3 nights here ! Nothing was too much for Des and Sinead. Their culinary skills were superb, the bed and room very comfortable. We came to visit the RSPB reserve of Insh Marshes - only just over a mile away - and Glen Feshie, well known in rewilding circles. The Osprey Hotel was the perfect base. I can't recommend it highly enough !

We are dog friendly, please contact us before booking a room with your four legged furry friends as we only have a certain amount of bedrooms allocated to them. 


Kingussie is an ideal spot for day trips in any direction - Inverness (42 miles), Perth (70 miles), Ben Nevis and Fort William (48 miles) and the Moray Firth area, and a convenient stop over for journeys to and from the Orkney Islands, Sutherland and Caithness. We are close to Aviemore, Newtonmore, and Boat of Garten for Osprey watching, and the Cairngorm Mountain Range. This area is extremely popular for winter sports. There are numerous dining and entertainment establishments (some also dog friendly), serving fresh Highland produce, along with local craft and gift shops, within walking distance of the hotel. 

The area is rich in wildlife, including deer, golden eagle, red squirrel, and, with a bit of luck, otter; and with LOT of luck, the elusive Scottish wildcat. We on the same road as Ruthven Barracks, and the skies locally are light pollution free, great for the astronomer. The scenery in the immediate area is magnificent, a photographers dream. 

Culloden Battlefield is within an hours drive, as is Blair Atholl and its castle, the Dalwhinnie distillery, the headwaters of the River Spey, the Highland Wildlife Park, and many other local attractions.

If you have any special requests, please ask us. If we can't get it then it probably doesn't exist.
