Winter Wellie Walk

With its rolling hills and vertiginous cobbled closes, majestic buildings and pretty Georgian streets, Edinburgh is best explored on foot.

Guests enjoying a winter break in a sumptuous suite at The Balmoral can now get to know the Scottish capital in comfort thanks to a complimentary pair of snug and stylish Hunter wellington boots. Along with weatherproof footwear, our concierge team are on hand to create personalised walking routes of the city. Alternatively, suite guests are invited to book one of The Balmoral's guided tours around the Scottish capital - a traditional walking tour or The Balmoral's Instagram Walking Tour that takes visitors to the most photographic parts of the city.

Based on suggestions from the hotel’s General Manager, Richard Cooke, the recommended routes will lead guests on scenic strolls that take in iconic Edinburgh landmarks, including a wander up the historic Royal Mile to Holyrood Palace, the Queen’s official residence when she’s in town, as well as a ramble around the curving crescents of the New Town. Those keen to raise their heart rate a few notches can also climb up Calton Hill— the citywide views at the top providing ample reward.

A minimum 2-night stay in a Junior Suite or above.
