The Duke and Duchess of Rothesay visit The Fife Arms in Braemar

The Duke and Duchess of Rothesay (as The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall are known when in Scotland) today visited The Fife Arms in Braemar to mark the re-opening of The Fife Arms. 

Their Royal Highnesses toured the former Victorian coaching inn which has recently undergone restoration. Dating back to 1856, The Fife Arms is a landmark in the village of Braemar, home of the Highland Games, and the new renovation brings together Scottish heritage, craftsmanship and culture. 

The interiors feature over 14,000 historic objects, artwork and artefacts that have been collected over three years in order to tell some of the many stories associated with Braemar, and one of the rooms is decorated with artwork by Gideon Summerfield, a graduate of The Royal Drawing School.

The Duke and Duchess met staff before unveiling a plaque to mark the visit.
