Ury Estate

The stunning 1,600-acre Ury Estate is located outside the town of Stonehaven, on Scotland’s magnificent North East coast. Nestled amongst stunning woodland, the Estate benefits from spectacular sea views, a magnificent renovated castle, and superb country and coastal walks.

Ury also acts as the gateway to fabulous Royal Deeside, including Balmoral Castle, reputedly the late Queen Elizabeth’s favourite residence. By living here, you too have the opportunity to share in the majestic splendour provided by this location.

The first residential golf community in Europe to bear the Jack Nicklaus name, the development will boast a range of exclusively branded luxury housing, a masterpiece 18-hole Signature Championship Golf Course designed by the legendary US golfer, and the sensitively redeveloped Ury Castle. This will incorporate a clubhouse and world-class facilities.

Known worldwide as ‘The Golden Bear’, Jack holds a record 18 major championships, including his first Open, which he won on Scottish soil in 1970.

His love of Scotland is well-recognised and was acknowledged in 2005 when the Golden Bear became the only living non-UK national to be featured on British currency.

Jack’s legacy as a player is equalled only by his reputation as a golf course designer.
