Kingussie is the capital of Badenoch in the Highlands. It’s a lovely lively town beside the River Spey in the midst of the beautiful Cairngorms National Park.
For those seeking invigorating activities, experience climbing, rambling, pony trekking, water and winter sports. Kingussie’s challenging 18-hole hillside golf course, established in 1891, rises to 1000 ft above sea level, offering spectacular views of the National Park. For those seeking Highland peace and tranquillity there are glorious riverside walks, fishing and birdwatching as well as a pleasant walk from the town to the ruins of Ruthven Barracks.
The hugely popular television series Monarch of the Glen was filmed entirely in the upper Spey Valley, including many scenes featuring Kingussie.
