Art reigns supreme at The Fife Arms, where each of its 46 individual guestrooms are decorated to tell the many stories of the historic village of Braemar. Owners Iwan and Manuela Writh, who are also co-founders of the critically acclaimed art gallery Hauser & Writh, have brought their passion for aesthetic rigor to this exquisite hotel, which houses one-of-a-kind artworks, antiques, and objects once owned by historic figures.

With décor whose richness references the Victorian era, each room is in and of itself a work of art, inspired by some of Braemar’s most noble visitors yet showcasing modern luxury at its finest – freestanding coper baths, rain showers, and separate sitting rooms all take the guest back in time while meeting every modern need. Beyond your room’s walls, enjoy a range of spa treatments, seven days a week.
Famous for the Royal Highland Games, Braemar is the perfect location for The Fife Arms, which is situated a stone’s throw away from the historic Balmoral Castle, as well as Cairngorms National Park – a perfect spot for hiking. Venture to the River Dee for a fishing outing, or forage with Natasha Lloyd, The Fife Arms’ in-house tour leader.
Artwork isn’t limited to the walls at The Fife Arms, where food too is approached with an artful touch. Celebrated for its world-class fine dining, guests can enjoy five dining rooms, each with its own unique
charm. From a fondue hut specializing in the art of Swiss fondu, to The Clune Dining Room whose wood- fire cooking showcases some of the best seasonal produce, the hotel cuts no corners when it comes to providing guests with an otherworldly experience.
