Let Us Keep You Warm This Winter

The Scottish Highlands are a wild and romantic place to visit in the winter. The majestic glens and hills are spectacular at any time of year, but there is something about the contrasts of the winter landscape that really bring it to life. Here in the heart of the highlands, at Kingsmills Hotel we frequently enjoy a covering of snow throughout parts of the winter, shrouding the mountains with a blanket of white. The silence of a snowy mountain landscape is almost tangible, and a clear blue winter sky enables each rock and feature to stand out with vivid clarity.

Come and experience the magic of the Highlands in winter with our exclusive Winter Warmer Offer

We can think of a few good reasons for you to visit the beautiful Scottish Highlands for a winter getaway this year. Amble hand-in-hand along paths through the frozen hills, take advantage of some Christmas deals in Inverness’ bustling shopping area or simply come in from the cold to a warm welcome.

When the winter is doing its very worst outside, we’ll greet you with a warm smile. Take off that snowy overcoat, scarf and gloves, and get the circulation going again in our Whisky Bar. Sink into a comfy armchair and let the warming taste of a dram of single malt whisky melt away the winter blues.

Victory for Kingsmills Chef in Young Highland Chef of the Year Awards

In this blog we would like to say how proud we are of our very own chef Arkadiusz Swider, who has recently been awarded third place in the Young Highland Chef of the Year Awards 2014. The Young Highland Chef awards are an initiative of the University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) and their partners the Albert Roux Consultancy. Since 2009, the awards have given talented young Scottish chefs the opportunity to play their skills against contestants before a panel of professional judges, led by Double Michelin star chef Albert Roux.

A prestigious challengeGBV_Kingsmills_Chocolate Dessert_Web

Twenty-six-year-old Arkadiusz faced some very stiff competition from other young chefs in qualifying for the contest, and so we were delighted when we heard he had been selected as one of the six finalists. For the final contest on 28th October, Arkadiusz had to travel to the Burghfield House Hotel in Dornoch to participate in a cook-off in front of a live panel of judges with his five fellow-finalists. Apart from Albert Roux himself, the panel included heavyweight chefs such as Andrew Fairlie from the Gleneagles Hotel, Brian Maule of the Chardon d’Or in Glasgow and Glen Watson of The Belfry in Sutton Coldfield. As third placed winner, Arkadiusz received a prize of £100 and some well-deserved recognition from leaders in the hospitality industry that we know will stand him in good stead for his future career.

Arkadiusz came back exhausted, but justly proud of his sterling performance in the prestigious awards. It just goes to prove what we at the Kingsmills knew all along – that Arkadiusz is a creative, passionate and exceptionally talented young chef. He is a pleasure to work with, and we consider ourselves very lucky to have him as part of the team. Well done!

To taste Arkadiusz’ handiwork for yourself, book yourself in for dinner at our Inglis or Conservatory A La Carte restaurant, and we very much look forward to seeing you soon at the Kingsmills Hotel.

Come and Visit Inverness this Autumn

Autumn is one of the prettiest times of the year to take a visit to Inverness and the surrounding highlands. Inverness is one of the most beautiful cities in the Scotland, whilst we might be a bit biased at Kingsmills Hotel – it’s with good reason. Have you visited Inverness? Have you seen the natural beauty that surrounds us, the quiet rolling hillsides, the russet tinged glens, historic red brick distilleries, the Clava Cairns, the Castles in abundance, Loch Ness, Culloden Moor and so much more?

Autumn at Kingsmils Hotel

Beauty in Abundance

Looking at places around the world, and in Scotland, it is plain to see what a wondrous planet we live on. We should take the time to see as much of it as we can. Scotland has a rich and deep history and is abundant with castles and homes that tell its story over millennia. Coming to Inverness is like a cultural lesson. You can visit the town house—built between 1878 and 1882—the town hall, a most stunningly beautiful Victorian building and St. Andrew’s Cathedral.

You are at one with nature when you visit Inverness and at risk of sounding like a travel blog, we strongly suggest you pay a visit here. At Kingsmills, you are our guest and as a guest you are entitled to all the splendour that we have on offer. Our finest dining experience, our comfortable and beautiful rooms and our incredibly beautiful and picturesque gardens are just some of the reasons to come and stay here. As we said, we are a little biased, but for all the right reasons.

A Night at the Opera

If theatre, musicals and drama are your thing, there is plenty in Inverness to keep you entertained. How about the Eden Court theatre, which has a variety of shows to attend—check their listings for fun things to watch? It is an excellent way to round off an evening of strolling along the Ness River, around the Ness Bridge and down to Grieg Street Bridge. Come home to Kingsmills for a tasty dinner and a lovely toddy to round off the day. Call our sales team direct today on 01463 237 166 today for our best deals!

We Wish You A Happy Hogmanay!

At Kingsmills Hotel, we love to let you know about offers happening later in the year so that you as the valued guests get a heads up so you can book your weekend or week long break. We know that Christmas is still a way off, but if you know exactly what we will be doing, you can prepare, book in advance and get your room paid for in plenty of time.

We will give you a delicious glass of mulled wine to warm you cockles, and each morning you will wake up to the most delightfully cooked Scottish breakfast. On the night of your arrival, we will serve you dinner in our Inglis Restaurant with a delectable 3-course meal. You also get free parking, free WiFi, use of the bar and lounge area and a complimentary upgrade on a luxury room.  However, this is why you need to book early, because that is subject to availability.
