Issue 51 - December 2018

We wish all our readers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

With the Fife Arms re-opening this month we devote our front page to a letter from Federica:

The wait is finally over! We know that many of you have missed our public bar while the hotel has been closed for the renovations. So we are excited to announce that it will open for business on 10 December with a new name - The Flying Stag.

We very much hope that you will once again frequent the pub and we have great pleasure in inviting you to join The Flying Stag Club. Created just for residents of Braemar, Glenshee, Crathie and Ballater, the club is free to join and offers a range of benefits. These include a 10% discount on food and drink throughout the hotel, a 25% discount in the spa between 10am and 2pm and a 10% discount in our new hotel shop. To apply for membership, please email us at mail@thefifearms.com

As most of you will have seen, the hotel is a hive of activity in the run up to our opening. We have welcomed about 80 new faces to the team, who are excited to also become part of the Braemar community. I hope you will join me in giving them a warm welcome.

We are in the process of launching our new website which will be fully live in mid-December. Please do browse www.thefifearms.com to learn more about the hotel and to stay up to date with our latest news.

Lastly, a big thank you to those of you were able to join us for our St. Andrew’s Day celebrations. For those of you who weren’t able to join one of the tours of the hotel, please contact us at mail@thefifearms as we are arranging additional dates.

I look forward to welcoming you all back to The Fife Arms.
