Artfam is a “one of a kind” business. With its unique ethos, Artfarm has changed people’s expectations of what a hotel or restaurant can be. That power has come from a team who at every level share the beliefs, passions and ambitions of its founders, Iwan and Manuela Wirth.
The Fife Arms was the first hotel venture for Artfarm and impressively won The Times ‘Hotel of The Year’ Award in its first year of opening! The Fife is a Victorian coaching inn situated within the village of Braemar in the magnificent Cairngorms National Park. It brings together Scottish heritage, craftsmanship and culture with world-class contemporary art and a strong sense of community.
