Kingshouse Hotel

The Kingshouse Hotel is found at the western end of Rannoch Moor close to the entrance of Glen Coe. It was built in the 17th century and is thought to be one of Scotland's oldest licensed inns. After the Battle of Culloden in 1746 the building was used as a barracks for King George's troops, giving it the name Kingshouse. One of General Wade's military roads passes by. This route is now followed by the West Highland Way over Rannoch Moor, past Kingshouse, up the Devil's Staircase and on to Kinlochleven.
