Hotel of the Month: The Fife Arms

Described by the Financial Times as ‘Scotland’s hottest hotel’, The Fife Arms Hotel is a Braemar landmark and its size is evidence of the popularity of Braemar, when the hotel was built in the 19th century, in the wake of Queen Victoria’s visits with her purchase of Balmoral Castle.

Art is central to The Fife Arms experience. As co-founders of the acclaimed global gallery, Hauser & Wirth, Iwan and Manuela Wirth have been passionately dedicated for many years to modern and contemporary art. More than 14,000 pieces including both antiques and specially commissioned artworks have been thoughtfully integrated into every room, corridor, and corner.

With a strong team heading up the hotel and kitchen as well as the outdoor pursuits, the Fife Arms appears to have everything in place to make a big splash in the Highlands.
