Discover Enchanting Edinburgh

Edinburgh is the heart and soul of Scotland. From the craggy majesty of Edinburgh Castle and the Medieval streets of the Old Town to the classical elegance of Holyrood Palace and the smart Georgian New Town, the city is steeped in history. To fill the days, there are beautiful parks and gardens, quaint pubs, world-class art galleries and extinct volcanoes to visit. Then there’s the month-long Fringe Festival and exuberant Hogmanay. The Scots certainly know how to throw a party.

Outside the city, the weathered beauty of Scotland beckons from windswept beaches and heather-covered hills to ancient castles and vast lochs. For sustenance, seek out small batch whisky distilleries and fresh-off-the-boat seafood. The country and its capital conjure ideals of rugged romance, roaring fires and wild scenery.

Our hotel, The Balmoral, is perhaps the best known in Edinburgh. It occupies a grand, historic building at the prestigious address, No 1 Princes Street and the 187 rooms and suites have been individually designed by Olga Polizzi. Enjoy Michelin-starred dining at the famous Number One restaurant, sample modern Scottish Afternoon Tea under the glass dome of Palm Court or relax in the serene sanctuary of The Balmoral Spa. Brasserie Prince, launched in 2018, celebrates a 'new alliance': matching the very best of Scottish produce with classic French cooking, while The Balmoral’s signature whisky bar, SCOTCH, pays homage to Scotland’s national drink and is home to one of Edinburgh’s largest collections.

The Balmoral’s 10 well-equipped event spaces are perfect for anywhere between 15 and 400 guests and are set within some of the most elegant spaces in the city, with spectacular views over the Old Town and up towards the Castle. You’ll be in good company: J.K. Rowling finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows here, the Queen Mother regularly popped in for lunch and Laurel & Hardy were also known to stop by.
