Celebrating the 25th anniversary of Rocco Forte Hotels, The Balmoral has curated a ‘Scottish Gold’ experience in Edinburgh.
Add the Scottish capital to your Grand Tour itinerary and embellish your trip with a visit to Edinburgh’s finest jewellers, whisky tasting and a private access to The Balmoral’s rooftop to view the famous Clock Tower.
This unique, curated experience starts with a behind-the-scenes visit to Edinburgh’s most famous jewellers, Hamilton & Inches, the designers behind Edinburgh’s iconic Balmoral clock. Returning to the hotel, visit The Balmoral’s private rooftop and discover the history of the timepiece and find out why it has rarely told the right time.
Raise a glass to your gilt-edged experience with a whisky tasting at the Balmoral’s cosy bar, Scotch, which covers the past 25 years. From a library of 500 whiskies, you’ll taste a carefully selected sample from a variety of distilleries, hearing about the history of scotch while enjoying a wee dram.
The Balmoral hotel is where it all began for Rocco Forte Hotels in 1997, in the heart of the historic castle city of Edinburgh. Book one of the hotel’s Castle View Suites for a clear view of the imposing castle. Mark 25 years with a seven course menu at Number One, the most formal of the hotel’s five dining spaces.
Select up to five different European Rocco Forte Hotels on your European Grand Tour and enhance your itinerary, if you wish, with one or more of our unique, curated experiences.
