The Kings House Hotel in Glencoe re-opens this month. The 17th century Inn has received a £12m refurbishment which has not only added 35 rooms but also includes a brand new dining room to accompany the hotel’s original climbers’ bar which has been renamed ‘The Way Inn’.
GM Craig Haddow said, “Kingshouse used to be known as a welcoming place to lay your head overnight but we are now equipped to make more of the stunning surroundings to be a destination venue for longer stays
as well. We will also be able to host weddings for up to 100 people, with 57 comfortable and contemporary bedrooms for guests.”
He continued, “Bunkhouse accommodation will still be available for those on the West Highland Way but this too has been modernised and upgraded, with new drying rooms and a bag store added to increase
comfort and utility.”
The Kingshouse Hotel will be managed under contract by the family-owned Crieff Hydro Family of Hotels and owner Stephen Leckie said, “Our motivation from the outset, was to provide continuity for all the things which make Kingshouse unique while ensuring its longevity for another century and more. It was important for all of us to retain the ethos of muddy boots and wet dogs drying in front of open fires while ensuring the
standard of hospitality and comfort was fit for the international audience attracted to dramatic Glencoe.” Many historic figures including author Charles Dickens and poet William Wordsworth have stayed there.
