In Edinburgh your address is everything, we realised, as we navigated our way to one of the city’s most prestigious, The Balmoral – at the confluence of the old town and the new. Part of the Rocco Forte collection, it boasts 188 grand suites. We ate one of the best meals of our lives at the Michelin-starred restaurant, and experienced Scottish sophistication at its best with the hotel’s collection of over 400 Scottish whiskies.
