The hotel oozes with tradition. Service is top notch. The best part of our stay though was the food. Fantastique!!! Michelin star food for sure in terms of quality, menu choice, presentation and taste. And yet prices are extremely reasonable. Everything we tasted was simply divine - sweet potato and cajun spiced soup, venison carpaccio, seared scallops, pigeon, sautéed wild... More

The hotel on the website looked so nice! The price indicated that this should be a 5 star (plus the other "labels" such as Conde Nast), although the website does proclaim it to be 4 star, yet what we got was a good 3 star hotel with lovely staff and a new owner who agrees "there is much to be...

Arrived mid afternoon and received a friendly welcome and efficient check in. The grounds of the hotel were very well kept and although parts of the external structure needed a little TLC, the inside was beautiful, clean and everything you would expect from a hotel of this stature. Our room (Castle) was lovely and spacious, the bathroom as luxurious as... More

Lovely looking house although it's actual views of the Firth are pretty limited. Staff were very good and generally very attentive. We booked a 2 night DBB which was pretty expensive and we're let down on the first night with menu items not being available then served with replacements that were simply not 2 AA standard. The owner offered us... More

My grandson and I were touring Scotland and he wanted to 'sleep in a castle' while there. The Kincraig is very nice, clean and eye-appealing. It is located far from anything else so if you don't have car, a taxi is an expensive way around. It was hot in July and there was no air conditioning or fans so unless... More

Booked a weekend away with my partner and had a wonderful stay. Very friendly staff on arrival and we received complimentary shortbread and coffee at check in, a very nice touch! Enjoyed a lovely meal in the restaurant and we were made to feel very welcome by the family who own the hotel. Our room was spacious and finely furnished... More

Kincraig is very comfortable and welcoming with a good menu. This is not a trendy, luxury, city boutique hotel but it has a relaxing classic, country charm. Very, very peaceful, with attentive staff and great surroundings made for a lovely weekend.
