    Refurbished 220 square meter accommodation can be booked as a two or three bedroom suite.

    Rocco Forte Hotel’s Edinburgh property, The Balmoral, has revealed a new look for its flagship Scone & Crombie suite.

    Led by Olga Polizzi, Rocco Forte Hotels’ Director of Building & Design, and sister to Sir Rocco Forte, the company says the Scone & Crombie will become one of the largest suites in Scotland thanks to an extensive refurbishment.

    Named after the Scone Palace in Perthshire, the signature suite has been designed as the ultimate city base for families. The flexible accommodation stretches over 220 square meters and can be booked as a two or three bedroom suite.

    Private Check-Ins

    The addition of a sizeable entrance hall provides a location for discrete private check-ins and opens onto a multipurpose meetings and dining space.

    The sitting room, with its working fireplace and serene colour palette, has been designed to provide a restful foil for the scheme in which rich fabrics meet opulent furnishings.

    The master bedroom, meanwhile, has also be completely redesigned – combining what the company says is modernity and tradition with the juxtaposition of antique and heritage pieces with pops of colour and bold prints.

    Rocco Forte Hotels’ says the renovated rooms and suites are integral to its ongoing suite offering – the company has unveiled The Rocco Forte Suite Experience and as part of this, The Balmoral has created an exclusive cashmere turndown service for the Scone & Crombie with luxury Scottish cashmere brand Hawico.

    Outdoor Adventure

    In addition, two new experiences – Scone & Crombie Land and Scone & Crombie Sea – have also been created for guests of the suite in partnership with Scotland’s outdoor adventure specialists, Ossian. Offering access to sporting locations and private properties, Scone & Crombie Land will see Ossian founder, Ted Innes Ker, lead a tour of his family home in the Scottish Borders, Floors Castle, and host a dinner in the Duke’s Fishing Hut located right on the banks of the River Tweed.

    Scone & Crombie Sea, meanwhile, offers guests the opportunity to escape city aboard a luxury boat and explore the islands and coastline of the Firth of Forth. Guests will have a BBQ lunch in a rustic log cabin overlooking a vast sandy beach and across to the Bass Rock and May Island.
