“Wow, this place is fantastic!”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

The best B & B on our entire trip. The room and bathroom are very large and comfortable, with all amenities. John and Lorraine are excellent hosts and made us feel very much at home. They had wonderful tips on what to see in the area and where to eat. They also had really good maps of all the hikes in the area. Breakfast was very delicious and fresh.

We went to Slemish for 5 nights for a walking holiday and were so amazed by the warmness of John and Lorraine. They were so knowledgable of places we could eat every night and every recommendation of theirs was great. The B&B itself was homely and the facilities were fantastic with two ensuite bathrooms and comfy beds. The breakfasts were delicious from the homemade breads and preserves to the full Scottish breakfast. We could not fault Slemish!!

Room Tip: The double bedroom has an amazing bathroom, but all the rooms at Slemish are fantastic!

We stayed at Slemish B+B for 2 nights at the end of June and were very impressed. Its set in an idyllic location with beautiful surroundings. On arrival we were welcomed with home made scones and cup cakes. A little added extra by Lorraine and John. We were made to feel very welcome throughout our stay. Our bedroom was very spacious, spotless and very comfortable. Breakfast was very good. Freshly made with plenty of choice.
I would definitely recommend this lovely B+ B and we will definitely be returning in the future.

We stayed at Slemish at the end of June and were treated to great hospitality by John and Lorraine. We were the only two guests and made to feel like one of the family. Breakfast was excellent and freshly prepared, house was spotless and very comfortable. Room 2 kingside with sofa and dressing room area plus huge bathroom was wonderful, and spacious. Kingussie is a great wee town and plenty of restaurants in short walking distance down small hill from house. We dined at Golf Club and Silverfjord, both of which were excellent but I was particularly impressed with Silverfjord well priced and gastropub quality.

We´ve had 4 great days at the Slemish B&B. The hosts, John and Lorraine, are very welcoming, caring and friendly. It`s hard to describe all the great features this B&B has, but to mention a few:

John & Lorraine are exceptional hosts. Right as we got there, John invited us to a cup of tea accompanied by some very delicious scones and cookies. The house itself is very neat, everything is clean, the rooms are spacious, this is also true for the ensuite bathroom, which has a shower and a huge bathtub. Everything is very well furnished, just have a look at the design of the radiators :-). But wait, there is more: The breakfast served at the B&B is really outstanding, most of the ingredients are local products and everything is made fresh to your liking. In case we needed any advice for our day trips, John and Lorraine were happy to help out. Last but not least, the house is close to the town centre of Kingussie and even the local pubs can be reached by foot.

We definitely recommend this B&B - the place on the list of Scotlands Best B&Bs is very well deserved.

The B&B is better than any of the Hotels we have ever stopped in. The room No2 (the double) is huge and the bathroom hosts a double bath, great to soak in side by side.A beautiful house with a spotless lawn and garden. John & Lorrain treated us like old friends up for a visit. wonderfull breakfasts with home made soda bread and whisky marmalade on the table. they are a positive fount of knowledge of the best places to visit and what events are on both locally and in the Highlands. We will be going back.

Room Tip: Book the double (No 2) if possible its a queen size bed, lots of room.

I don't know if I should really tell you about this little hidden gem of a B+B nestled in a lovely part of Kingussie because I'd like to keep it all to myself, but I suppose I should pass it on.
John and Lorraine who own and run Slemish b+b are so welcoming you feel like you've known them for years and when we arrived we we're greeted with tea and delicious home baking and a warm smile which was wonderful after our journey north into the dramatic and wonderful scenery of Scotland. If you have any special dietry needs they will gladly cater for or for ideas of activities John and Lorraine will more than happily point you in the right direction. Fantastic accommodation well worth a visit if your on a long or short stay and want a comfortable hassle free break with the Cairngorms National Park on your doorstep. 110% happy and chilled..'
