The Fife Arms


Nestled in the historic Highlands town of Braemar in the heart of the Cairngorms, The Fife Arms is a former Victorian coaching inn that’s been transformed into a five-star retreat. A passion project of international art dealers, Hauser & Wirth, the Grade II listed property fuses traditional Highlands flair with world-class contemporary art. The result is wildly romantic, supremely cosy, and jaw-droppingly unique.

Ranging from snug Croft Rooms to palatial Royal Suites, each of the 46 rooms and suites is lovingly designed and individually themed. The elegant accommodation is richly decorated with antique furnishings, artworks, and period wallpaper celebrating everything from historic Scottish figures to nature and poetry.

Dine on classic Scottish cuisine accompanied by real ales in the public bar, The Flying Stag, or head to the fine dining restaurant, The Clunie Dining Room, to savour the finest seasonal Scottish produce. Bertie’s Whisky Bar has 365 whiskies to discover, while the Art Deco cocktail bar, Elsa’s, is the perfect spot for a pre or post-dinner tipple.

Guests can request an art tour of the property, try a range of creative pursuits from wild sketching to landscape photography, explore the gorgeous garden, or unwind with a soothing treatment.
