The historic Ossian hotel ceased normal operations with the untimely passing of the longtime owners. Their son Tony is giving the time warp building a long needed refresh. The rooms are clean and the water is hot. Considering most of your time in a hotel room is spent with your eyes closed the dated decor shouldn't be an issue. Its...

Myself, my better half and the kids took the notion for a spur of the moment weekend down by Badenoch and Strathspey, and after a handful of searches we came across the Ossian Lodges. We knew nothing about the house, or Kincraig for that matter, but we took a gamble. The gamble paid off! We were given a family room,...

I stayed there many years ago and it was lovely, I can only assume that it is now under new management,. But I would like to go back again one day. The room was great and the staff friendly the owners mother even knitted me a pair of socks for my hiking boots which I still have.

On our return home, we found that £8.00 had been debited to our credit card by Ossian, before our stay. We had paid £62.00 at the time of booking, and we believed that this was payment in full for our night’s accommodation. At the time we checked out, we asked whether our payment had gone though and were told it...

Several rooms with good size and all amenities. Also be seen that it would be necessary to better maintenance and cleaning. Everything is still ok. Shortcomings exports willingness and helpfulness. Breakfast is continental.
