Kingussie is the ancient capital of Badenoch and home of the Dukes of Gordon as well as the outlawed son of Robert II, the infamous “Wolf of Badenoch”. Kingussie is a paradise for outdoor activities and those who appreciate invigorating Highland air, dramatic scenery and Highland hospitality. The hugely popular television series, ‘Monarch of the Glen’ seen by audiences all over the world was filmed entirely in the upper Spey Valley, including many scenes featuring Kingussie.
We use the Star Hotel, which is centrally situated and is a well established, popular Highland Hotel.
In the heart of the town is a selection of restaurants, cafés and hotels serving delicious Highland fare, as well as interesting shops selling a range of goods from everyday essentials to souvenirs and gifts.
