Ardfin Estate, remote luxury on the Jura island in Scotland

UK HotelsRentals

We’ve become big fans of Scotland since we went to KillieHuntly, and then to Lundies House and the Fife Arms. So I’m paying special attention to any new luxury hotel that opens there.

Ardfin Estate opened in 2020 and immediately captured our interest. It’s an ultra luxury hotel on the southern shores of the Isle of Jura, in Scotland’s Inner Hebrides.

Ardfin Estate is a golf estate with a house for groups and a hotel.

The12,000 acre estate was restored and revitalised to combine 5-star luxury with a golf course, already acclaimed to be one of the best in the world.

Now the jewel of the crown is Jura House, which has an indoor pool. However, you can only enjoy it if you rent the whole house with friends and family. Jura House is available on an exclusive use basis, for minimum 3-night stays for up to twenty guests

The Quads though offer 13 luxurious bedrooms and two 2-bedroom apartments.

Originally one of Ardfin’s agricultural buildings, the Quadrangle is now transformed into a hotel with spacious public spaces that include The Atrium, the main bar and dining area, with its glass ceiling and abundant natural light, and the Ceilidh Barn, which offers more space to relax, play billiards and taste whiskies.

Grand luxury at Ardfin Estate

Each Quads bedroom is unique designed by London designer, Louise Jones. The style very much reminds me of the Fife Arms with a mix of Scottish artworks and vintage artifacts to furnish the rooms, while fabrics and wallpapers have been sourced  from local woollen mills as well as Liberty.

Mr Bigg would loove the bathroooms which are grand and marbled with powerful showers and there is even a drying cupboard in each room to ensure the clothes are never damp.

Ardfin Estate is best suited for couples as the rooms can only accommodate 2 people and given the price, booking 2 rooms for the children to come would be really a lot.

The Highlands and Islands of Scotland are famous for outdoor pursuits and Ardfin offers them all, from fishing and stalking to whisky tours and walking. I can definitely imagine us doing a long walk and then coming back to enjoy a tea by the fire or a lovely diner in the restaurant.

We are not golfers but the situation and the exclusivity of the place certainly appeal to us and that’s why I’m adding Ardfin to my bucket list of hotels on this blog
