New design crowns Kingshouse
The £12m Kingshouse in Glencoe has been unveiled – and what a transformation. It was designed by Covell Matthews Architects for owners Black Corries Estate and the hotel is now operated by Crieff Hydro Hotels.
The entire place has the look and feel of a mountain ski lodge. The hotel’s bar has its own whisky corner – complete with whisky barrel tables, stone fireplace and wooden beams. The bar has been decked out in teal tiles, with a back bar shaped like a whisky barrel.
There’s also burnt orange furniture, but it’s the views of Buchaille Etive Mor and Buchaille Etive Beag that get the top billing and rightly so.
This must be one of the most breathtaking views in Scotland. The dining room offers more of the same but is slightly more formal – serving more of that fabulous view too of course.
