The transformation of the Kingshouse Hotel is well and truly underway, with site works having started Spring 2018. The new look hotel will be managed by the Crieff Hydro Family of Hotels, who have been fuelling Scottish hospitality for 150 years. Specialising in authentic Scottish welcomes in the country’s most iconic locations – the Scottish Borders, Perthshire and Glencoe – you can enjoy the family experience just 14 miles further along the A82 at the Isles of Glencoe and Ballachulish hotels overlooking Loch’s Leven and Linnhe.
The project team behind the rejuvenation of the Kingshouse Hotel has been hugely encouraged by the response to its public information forum.
Over 50 people attended the open event which was organised to provide local residents, businesses and organisations, community councillors and the local authority with the opportunity to see for themselves what the plans entail.
It was also a chance for attendees to speak with project managers Bidwells, architects Covell Matthews, hotelier Crieff Hydro and owner Diane de Spoelberch.
In her address to the gathering, Ms de Spoelberch said that her father had fallen in love with the area more than 55 years ago, when he first bought an estate in Glencoe. The family had spent many happy times as residents of the Kingshouse Hotel before the family bought Black Corries Estate next door.
“When the Kingshouse suddenly came up for sale in 2014 we didn’t want somebody buying it to create a large development on the site or build something which wasn’t in-keeping with the environment and so we bought it to develop a sustainable project which makes sense for the community.
“This hotel needs money and care and it should be a place for people who enjoy sport and the outdoors.
“However, we are responsible investors and don’t want to do anything that would displease the community. It must be clearly understood that we will not proceed with something that is not supported, even if this means no hotel at all.”
Commenting on the proposed plans, lifelong and oldest resident of Glencoe Doris Elliott said:
“Who turns down an £11 million investment in the community? It will bring more people to the area and keep the economy going. The Kings House is still there and the new extension will eventually blend in nicely.”
Alistair Sutherland, chair of Glencoe and Glen Etive Community Council was equally as keen:
“The community council is supportive of the plans as the redevelopment should provide some scope for young people who might otherwise leave this area.
“There are no facilities for functions anywhere close by and I like the design with the original droving inn being retained.”
