The Fife Arms Hotel Redevelopment

The Fife Arms Hotel in Braemar, which has been acquired by Iwan and Manuela Wirth (who are international art dealers with galleries under the name of Hauser & Wirth in London, New York and Zurich) is set to benefit from a multi-pound investment.

The couple, behind Highlands Hospitality Ltd, have appointed Inverloch Castle Management International (ICMI) to advise on the redevelopment, which will, if all goes according to plan see the hotel re-open in 2017. When completed the hotel, which was originally built as a hunting lodge, will offer 60 bedrooms. The Wirth’s know the area well as they already have a house in the area.
