If you’ve ever wanted an experience where you can truly get away from it all, perhaps there is no more desirable destination than Ardfin. This 12,000 acre estate is breathtakingly situated on Scotland’s remote island of Jura, accessible only by boat from neighboring Islay or mainland Scotland.
The Maison du Jura, the centerpiece of the estate, dates from the 18th century.
The accommodation comprises 10 superbly furnished guest rooms fully staffed to cater for a guest’s every whim.
Visitors can also enjoy 13 additional sumptuously appointed bedrooms in the quadrangles of the estate’s Ardfin farm, as well as two additional apartments and private dining rooms to better accommodate small groups.
The reason why customers travel thousands of miles to this ultra-remote location?
For a course – and an experience – like no other.
Ten years ago, planning began to build a world-class golf course along the Ardfin Estate’s seven miles of pristine coastline.
Australian architect Bob Harrison’s vision resulted in a spectacular collection of holes located atop cliffs, along beaches and around ancient stone walls a decade later.
The entire course of the walking route encompasses over 240 acres.
So it’s no surprise that after its official opening this year, Ardfin is making its debut at # 74 in the ranking of the top 100 GOLF courses in the world.
