The Garth Hotel was built in 1769, and through-out the years it has been an important cornerstone of Grantown-on-Spey. It began its time as a highland woollen mill, however has also been home to Queen Victoria’s favourite author, and residence to the towns physicians and ministers. Now, we enjoy the property as it has been known for many years – a vibrant, relaxed hospitality environment.
The Garth Hotel is perfectly placed; just a 2 minute walk to the museum, the town square, and the high street. The Craig Maclean leisure centre and the Grantown-on-Spey 18 hole golf course are both just a 5 minute walk from the Garth Hotel. A truly central position for exploring what Grantown, Badenoch and Strathspey has to offer.The Rooms 1769 Restaurant
