Duke of Gordon— Kingussie

The Duke of Gordon Hotel in Kingussie is set in the heart of the Scottish Highlands and looks out across the picturesque Spey Valley to Ruthven Barracks. With origins in the eighteenth century the Duke of Gordon hotel was originally built as a stopover for passengers travelling by stagecoach along the old A9 to Inverness and the North of Scotland. The facilities and atmosphere experienced in the hotel together with the hospitality and warm welcome extended by the staff make the Duke Of Gordon the ideal place for hotel accommodation in the Highlands of Scotland
