Duke of Gordon Hotel, Kingussie

This postcard shows a view of The Duke of Gordon Hotel at Kingussie.

The Duke of Gordon Hotel was originally constructed in 1836, with extensions added at later dates. The hotel has enchanted royalty for many years. Queen Victoria was so impressed by the hotel during her visit in 1861, that she made reference to it in her diaries. The hotel suffered massive fire damage in 1996 and after a 2.5 million restoration, it was reopened in 1998. The hotel acts as a base for annual gatherings of the clan MacPherson
