History

The exterior of Kincraig Castle Hotel remains largely unchanged since its construction in the early 1800s and the interior has been extensively refurbished, to bring it back to and beyond its former glory.

Kincraig Castle and the lands and villages of Kincraig were acquired by Colin MacKenzie, the second son of Rorie Mhor MacKenzie of Redcastle, who died in 1649, and is thought to have come to Kincraig in about 1630.

Colin's great-grandson, John V of Kincraig, made over Kincraig to his distant cousin, Roderick VII of Redcastle, in 1760 and he gave Kincraig to his second son, John. After a very lucrative career in India, John returned to redevelop Kincraig.

The work was enhanced by John's great-grandson, Sir Walter Martineau, in 1919, when he converted the sandstone castle into the white-harled Scottish Baronial building that you see today.

So there you have it - a castle from the deep mists of the past that has evolved through generations of the Clan MacKenzie into the now renowned Kincraig Castle Hotel.
