Ideally located near Aviemore and the Speyside Malt Whisky Trail, this magnificent Country House was once the home of the Lipton Tea family. Built in 1902, this elegant mansion is set in its own fabulous grounds in the heart of the Cairngorm National Park.
Tigh na Sgiath Country House Hotel (Gaelic for house on the wing/edge pronounced tie na skeea) was originally built in 1902 for the Mackenzie family, founders of the MacKinnon MacKenzie shipping line. The house was later sold to the Lipton Tea and grocery family and then to Major Scott and Lady Scott Hartley, famous for their jam making and grocery business.
In succession, the families used the house as their country retreat here in the heart of the Cairngorm National Park, taking advantage of the exceptional shooting and fishing in the surrounding area.
The hotel is now owned and personally run by Iain and Elaine MacDonald-
