Duke Of Gordon Hotel

Cairngorm National Park

The Duke Of Gordon Hotel, owned by Cairngorm Travel, is one of the Premier privately owned hotels situated in the Heart of the Scottish Highlands in the village of Kingussie. The hotel looks out across the Spey Valley and the Cairngorm National Park to Ruthven Barracks, the site of an earlier stone castle, constructed in the 1300’s by the ancestors of the 1st Duke of Gordon.

With origins in the eighteenth century the hotel was originally built as a stop-over for passengers travelling by stagecoach along the old A9 to Inverness and the North of Scotland. The facilities and atmosphere now experienced in the hotel, combined with the hospitality of our staff make the Duke Of Gordon the ideal place to stay when visiting the Highlands.

The Duke Of Gordon’s truly traditional Scottish atmosphere proved to be an ideal filming location for the popular TV series MONARCH OF THE GLEN with a number of our guests appearing as extras.

As a result of extensive modernisation, the Duke of Gordon is one of the very few Highland hotels that can offer all the facilities and  some comforts of a modern hotel combined with the traditional  character and heritage of an old Scottish coaching inn. The hotel has 60 en-suite bedrooms, direct dial telephone, colour TV and  tea/coffee making facilities.

The experience of dining in the elegance and splendour of our impressive Balmoral Restaurant with its heavily corniced ceilings and Peddie murals depicting Scottish Highland history and local scenes of great natural beauty is one not easily forgotten. Our menus are carefully selected and prepared to provide the best traditional Scottish fayre. These, combined with our very personal service, make dining at the ‘Duke’ truly a Jewel in the Highland Crown.

On several evenings guests are piped into dinner by a piper infull Highland dress. Entertainment takes place most eveningsin the Ruthven Ballroom in the form of Ceilidhs, folk nights and dancing.

The Duke of Gordon and the Spey Valley have enchanted Royalty through the ages dating back to the visit of Queen Victoria and her devoted Consort on 8th October 1861. Come and see why Her Majesty was so inspired that she made specific reference to her visit to the ‘Duke’ in her personal diaries.

Your stay at the Duke Of Gordon Hotel includes:
A five course candlelit dinner every evening
Full Scottish buffet breakfast
Tea and Coffee facilities
Free WiFi
Hotel porterage
Entertainment most evenings


Your Itinerary

Travel South to Perth. With a rich and influential history that stretches back over  800 years, Perth has served as its country’s capital and has always been one of the most important political, judicial and commercial centres in Scotland. Visit the Cairn O’ Mohr Winery to see the process of making fruit wines and cider.

Experience Fort William to Mallaig by diesel train. This journey takes you past a list of impressive extremes. Starting near the highest mountain in Britain, Ben Nevis, it visits Britain’s most westerly mainland railway station, Arisaig; passes close by the deepest freshwater loch in Britain, Loch Morar and the shortest river in Britain, River Morar, finally arriving next to the deepest seawater loch in Europe, Loch Nevis. The journey also takes us over the 21 arched Glenfinnan viaduct, made famous by the Hogwarts Express in the Harry Potter films. (Your train fare is included)

Visit Hamish, the new addition to the polar bear family at the Highland Wildlife Park! Hamish is the first polar bear to be born in the UK for 25 years. As well as Hamish there are many other animals that used to be native to the area. The Wildlife Park also has tigers, red pandas and wolves.
