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 in full 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


Itinerary

Visit the Cairngorm Brewery in Aviemore to learn about the process and techniques used for brewing their award-winning beer by using well established brewing methods, the finest malted and roast barley, hops and crystal clear mountain water.


Take the opportunity to travel to Stirling and visit Stirling Castle, one of the largest and most important castles in Scotland, both historically and architecturally. The castle sits atop Castle Hill, an intrusive crag, surrounded on three sides by steep cliffs, giving it a strong defensive position. Highlights include the Great Hall, Chapel Royal, Castle Exhibition, Regimental Museum, Great Kitchens, Tapestry Studio and the nearby Argyll’s Lodging, a 17th century town house. Then enjoy some free time in Stirling before returning to the Duke Of Gordon. (This is an optional tour that includes your entrance fee to the castle, please book prior to the departure of your holiday. Tour cost £26 per person).


Take the Mountain Gondola to 650m on the slopes of Aonach Mor, the UK’s eighth highest mountain, a stone’s throw from Ben Nevis. Once at the Gondola top station, enjoy stunning highland views of lochs and mountains – the perfect photo opportunity.
