LocationKingussie is at the very heart of the Scottish Highlands - the geographic centre of Scotland is marked by a stone on Loch Ericht side, just a few miles away. Despite it's size and apparent location, however, Kingussie is easy to get to -
By road from the south, you can travel on Motorway almost all the way to Perth, with just a few sections of dual carriageway here and there, then the fast A9 trunk road takes you the last 64 miles.
By rail you can travel on an overnight sleeper service from London, Crewe, Preston and Carlisle, which stops at Kingussie Station, or by day on through trains from London on the east coast route via York, Newcastle and Edinburgh, stopping at Kingussie. A regular Scotrail service from both Glasgow and Edinburgh also serves Kingussie and Newtonmore stations.
By air if you're planning to hire a car, you can fly to Inverness, Glasgow or Edinburgh and be in Kingussie in a couple of hours.
Citylink Coach services from Glasgow and Edinburgh to Inverness also stop in Kingussie - connections from the South are frequent.
If you're a driver, once you get on our roads, the stress of the south simply melts away - there's room to enjoy driving again, on roads that may not always be super-wide, but are to excellent standards and often maintained to a level that might surprise you - particularly outside the peak times of July and August, you'll find miles and miles of road almost to yourself - apart from the sheep of course!
