Greg Coffey standing in front of a mountain © Provided by The Scotsman An Australian millionaire is to open one of the world’s most exclusive golfing hotels on the remote Hebridean island where George Orwell wrote his dystopian best-seller 1984.

Ardfin Estate, on Jura, was bought for £3.5 million in 2010 by Greg Coffey, who has since spent an estimated £50m renovating Jura House and farm buildings into luxury accommodation.

Nicknamed the Wizard of Oz, after making a reputed £430m as a young city hedge fund trader, Mr Coffey has also spent around £20m creating an 18-hole golf course, on Jura’s rugged terrain.

Now Ardfin is set to welcome its first paying guests in April with Jura House, complete with golfing and other estate facilities, available for £20,000 a night, while a two-bedroom apartment in the old farm buildings, now known as The Quadrangle, will cost more than £5,000 a night.

Scottish spaceport set for blast-off after £2m boost

  Scottish spaceport set for blast-off after £2m boost Plans that would see a remote island in the far north of Scotland become home to the UK’s first spaceport have come a step closer to fruition after a major funding boost. Unst in Shetland, the most northerly inhabited island in the UK, has been selected as the ideal spot to construct a commercial satellite launch pad as the nation bids to join the new and rapidly growing global space sector.Now Shetland Space Centre (SSC) is set to benefit from investment of more than £2 million from private equity firm Leonne International, which will own a 20 per cent stake in the venture.

Offering a restaurant, 24-hours room service and a spa, Isle of Eriska Hotel Spa & Golf is set in 300 acres of lush landscapes in Oban. All ages and abilities are welcome in the golf course and driving range, which is open daily from 08:00 until 20:00.

The big house has been decked out in historic Scottish country house style by London-based interior designer Louise Jones. With no expense spared on its redesign, Jura House is now as far removed as it is possible to get from Barnhill, the basic farmhouse, four miles from the nearest road, where Orwell once stayed.

The attributes of the new hotel are featured in the latest edition of an upmarket travel magazine and an islander, who has seen the renovated house, said: “It’s £20,000 for the house, for one night, but the house is stunning, absolutely mind-blowing, it’s beyond description, you would be forgiven for thinking a family had lived there for 600 years.

“The house has actually tripled in size – and it was already a big mansion. The swimming pool is bigger than Jura Church and they have converted all the farm buildings into luxury apartments, all very individual and unique, there are no two things the same, no expense has been spared. There is a bar and a dining area you go to for your meals, they are not self-catering.”
