The Fife Arms

Braemar, Scotland

Following the rebirth of a 19th-century hunting lodge by an art and gallery world power couple, Iwan and Manuela Wirth, the property debuted in November 2018 to much fanfare (Prince Charles attended the opening). The reputation of Hauser & Wirth takes the “art hotel” concept to another level. Not only are there 16,000 pieces from around the world, different centuries and genres on display qualify the property as an exhibition in its entirety. Where else can you see a Louise Bourgeois spider sculpture in the same milieu as a watercolor by Queen Victoria and a chandelier made from stainless steel utensils?! The property also upholds the values that its parent company, Artfarm, espouses. Staying at the Fife Arms means being in the company of like-minded, curious and talented individuals. Located in the heart of the village, guests are part of the community, and there is a mutual regard for the preservation of Scottish heritage, craft and design.
