The team behind Andy Murray’s Cromlix Hotel are to transform the historic Ury House in Aberdeenshire in to a 50-room boutique hotel and restaurant.

ICMI, which also runs Inverlochy Castle, Greywalls and Crossbasket, has announced it will manage the hotel on behalf of the estate’s developers FM Group.

Work is already underway to restore the B-listed Ury House in to a multi-million-pound resort, featuring a golf course designed by US sporting legend Jack Nicklaus, a spa and equestrian centre.

The hotel is expected to open in 2020 and will create around 80 jobs.

Norbert Lieder, managing director of ICMI, said: “Ury Estate is going to become one of the UK’s top resorts and the hotel will be its centerpiece.

"Our intention is to develop a location for people who live on the estate, golfers, the local community and visitors from around the world.”

Around 90 houses are also expected to be built on the estate as part of the golf development.

Jonathon Milne, director of FM Group, said: “With Ury Estate we are looking to create an unrivalled hotel and resort in a unique setting. We are confident that ICMI, with its track record at Scotland’s top properties, will help us realise our vision.”

Ury House dates back to 1855 but fell in to disrepair and was placed in the ‘high risk’ category on the Buildings at Risk Register in 1990.

The Barclay family, whose descendants established Barclays Bank, previously owned a house in the same location on the Ury Estate in the 17th​ century.
