The managing director of the hotel at the heart of the new Ury Estate golf development in Aberdeenshire has boldly declared that it will become 'one of the UK's top resorts'.


Boasting a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course, the multi-million pound resort is scheduled to open in 2020 with the historic Ury House set to be converted into a luxury 50-room boutique and spa.

ICMI, the group that runs the likes of The Roxburghe Hotel in the Scottish Borders and Cromlix, the Dunblane hotel owned by tennis world No.1 Andy Murray, will manage the hotel – and managing director Norbert Lieder has high hopes for the development.

Ury Estate is going to become one of the UK’s top resorts,” he said. “Our intention is to develop a location for people who live on the estate, golfers, the local community and visitors from around the world.

“As well as individually designed bedrooms and suites, there will be a clubhouse, restaurant and conference centre.

“I believe there is a real need for a resort of this quality in the North-East. We are already working closely with FM Group on the interior layout, design and customer offer.”

Jack Nicklaus has visited the site (above) near Stonehaven and, earlier this year, he had to quell environmental fears surrounding the project after it was confirmed that the resort would be built on ancient woodland.

And, in September, there were fears plans for the resort could be axed altogether – despite being approved by councillors – over issues relating to another development in the region. However, a week later, councillors pushed on with plans voting 48-13 in its favour. The development is set to create 90 jobs.
