Welcome to the Osprey Hotel!


We are a small, family run, dog friendly - As we have to keep some rooms dog free, please contact us first if you wish to bring your dog(s) - (our resident basset hound, Phoebe, and new arrival Markie, welcome new and old friends!), hotel situated in Kingussie, in Badenoch and Strathspey, in the heart of the Highlands of Scotland. This region gained fame in the TV series, the "Monarch of the Glen".

Kingussie is an ideal spot for day trips in any direction - Inverness (42 miles), Perth (70 miles), Ben Nevis and Fort William (48 miles) and the Moray Firth area, and a convenient stop over for journeys to and from the Orkney Islands, Sutherland and Caithness. We are close to Aviemore, Newtonmore, and Boat of Garten for Osprey watching, and the Cairngorm Mountain Range. This area is extremely popular for winter sports. There are numerous dining and entertainment establishments (some also dog friendly), serving fresh Highland produce, along with local craft and gift shops, within walking distance of the hotel.

The area is rich in wildlife, including deer, golden eagle, red squirrel, and, with a bit of luck, otter; and with LOT of luck, the elusive Scottish wildcat. We are close to Ruthven Barracks, and the skies locally are light pollution free, great for the astronomer. The scenery in the immediate area is magnificent, a photographers dream.

Culloden Battlefield is within an hours drive, as is Blair Atholl and its castle, the Dalwhinnie distillery, the headwaters of the River Spey, the Highland Wildlife Park, and many other local attractions and activities.

Edinburgh is approximately 2-1/2 hours away by car. We are well served by buses and trains. The railway station is a 2 minute walk from the hotel. Pick-ups can be arranged.

All our rooms are en-suite and have a tea/coffee making tray provided. Free WIFI internet connection is available throughout the hotel. Packed lunches are available for your day trip, and also evening meals by prior arrangement. We have a small bar, stocked with local beers and malt whiskies.

We offer a high standard of care and friendly informality. If there is something that you want - please ask and we will do our best to accommodate your request!

Many of our guests are repeat visitors, and stay year after year. We look forward to hearing from you!

We like to think that anything is possible! Just ask!
