The hotel was purpose-built in 1980 with the addition of the games room and 3rd floor in more recent years. it is built on land originally owned by Forbes of Culloden, a prominent figure in the events surrounding the Battle of Culloden in April 1746. The replacement for the original Culloden House (now a hotel) can be easily reached on foot from here, and the dovecot, ice house and stables are still present. Culloden battlefield is nearby, and has an interactive visitor centre.
