The exterior of Kincraig Castle Hotel remains largely unchanged since its construction in the early 1800s and the interior has been extensively refurbished, to bring it back to and beyond its former glory. Kincraig Castle and the lands and villages of Kincraig were acquired by Colin MacKenzie, the second son of Rorie Mhor MacKenzie of Redcastle, who died in 1649, and is thought to have come to Kincraig about 1630. Colin's great-grandson, John V of Kincraig, made over Kincraig to his distant cousin Roderick VII of Redcastle in 1760 and he gave Kincraig to his second son, John. After a very lucrative career in India, John returned to redevelop Kincraig. The work was enhanced by John's great-grandson - Sir Walter Martineau - in 1919, when he converted the sandstone castle into the white-harled Scottish Baronial building that you see today. So there you have it - a castle from the deep mists of the past that has evolved through generations of the Clan MacKenzie into the now renowned Kincraig Castle Hotel. We also have what we like to call 20/20. This means that for all those keen Golfers out there, that within 20 miles of the hotel there are 20 Golf courses to choose from.
All of our staff live locally and can help with many questions or suggestions for activities. The owners of the Kincraig Castle Hotel are keen golfers and can help with any queries.
We have 20 Golf Courses within 20 miles, at Reception we are happy to book Tee- Off's. There are many local walks ranging from Hill walks to family friendly and an abundance of beaches to choose from. Dunrobin Castle is not far away, along with Dornoch Cathedral. We can organise tours for the local whisky distilleries, Dalmore and Glenmorangie.
