Welcome to Kingussie, the capital of Badenoch in the Scottish Highlands. It’s a small, lively town right beside the famous river Spey in the midst of the glorious Cairngorms National Park and almost exactly in the centre of Scotland!
Surrounded by stunning landscape where sports of every kind can be enjoyed from cycling to skiing, golf and fishing to watersports, walking and much more, Kingussie is a paradise for outdoor activities and for those who appreciate invigorating Highland air, dramatic scenery and Highland hospitality.
Visitors can enjoy award-winning eateries, live music and film screenings most weeks, festivals every month, speciality shops and a wide range of excellent hotels, guesthouses, B&Bs and self-catering accommodation. Travelling here couldn’t be easier – either by car on the A9, by national rail and bus services or even using cycle routes .
Kingussie hosted its second Heritage Festival with a much enhanced programme of events. Friday dawned wet and windy, however 10 hardy souls followed Dr Simon Green from RCAHMS on a very interesting and informative Architectural Trail round Kingussie.
On Wednesday January 29th Kingussie residents Helen Graham, Lydie Bocquillon and their partners took themselves down to Kilmarnock to represent the town at the prestigious Creative Place Awards for which Kingussie had been short-listed for its “Little Town of Festivals” initiative.
