The hotel’s name is a nod to the Scottish heritage that infuses our town. Malcolm III was King of Scots nearly a millennium ago, from 1058 to 1093. His nickname, Malcolm Canmore, comes from the Celtic Cean Mor, meaning “great-head” – a reference not only to his position as head of state but also to the fact that he had an unusually large noggin. (“A-ha!” you’re probably thinking, “now that stone statue on 8th Street by the bridge over Policeman’s Creek in Canmore makes sense!”) It was Donald Alexander Smith – one of the principal architects of the Canadian Pacific Railway – who drew on his Scottish heritage and bestowed the name Canmore on our mountain town.
