Edinburgh, the beautiful Capital City of Scotland, is situated amongst green volcanic hills. It's one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and home to the world's greatest art festival, which attracts more than 1 million visitors in September. Its earliest settlement was founded by a Celtic tribe, the Votadini, on the Castle Rock. As the population grew in size, dwelling houses sprang up outside the Castle Walls and spread down the Royal Mile, the Old Town of today. In the 18th Century, the City further expanded when the Georgian New Town was built by eminent architects; the City was the focal point of the Scottish Enlightenment.
Today, the lively cultural life of Edinburgh continues with the International Festival and Fringe, the Military Tattoo, the Scottish National and Chamber Orchestras, the Galleries and Museums and three thriving Universities.
Edinburgh has grand elegant hotels and wonderful restaurants.

Hotel suggestions :
Balmoral Hotel*****, Edinburgh
A luxury hotel in the true sense of the word, Rocco Forte Hotels' Balmoral, with its majestic clock tower, is a stylish five-star property in the very heart of Edinburgh. While many Edinburgh hotels claim
to have Edinburgh's landmarks on their doorstep, few can say their doorstep is a landmark. Located on Princes Street, in Edinburgh's main shopping area and next to Waverley Station, The Balmoral is
close to the leading luxury department stores and within striking distance of many Edinburgh attractions.
Edinburgh International Airport is just 25 minutes by car from the hotel, and its convenient location makes The Balmoral the ideal hotel accommodation in Edinburgh from which to enjoy the many
events held in the city. The Balmoral offers 188 opulent suites and stylish rooms with views towards Edinburgh Castle, the Old Town, or the hotel's internal courtyard. All the bedrooms were fully
refurbished in the hotel's recent £7 million refurbishment programme. The refurbishment also included The Balmoral's signature conference and banqueting suite, the Sir Walter Scott Suite, as well as seven further conference and banqueting suites, Hadrian's Brasserie, number one restaurant and the hotel lobby. When it comes to fine-dining, the choice of restaurants at The Balmoral matches the mood of the moment.

Robert Burns, our nations bard wrote this famous poem 'the address to a haggis' about Scotland's national dish. The poem lasts 4-5 minutes and is presented theatrically to entertain guests as a short lively interjection to your corporate event dinner. This is usually done before the guests dine on a haggis course (usually with neeps and tatties), but sometimes with haggis canapés as well. The piper will pipe the haggis into the room, and round the tables (if there is space) along with the chef and whisky barer. The haggis address will be briefly explained, then the poem is recited. Then guests are asked by the piper to toast the haggis with their drink (quite often a wee dram "small whisky").
Highland dancers: From sword dance and Highland Fling displays to helping ceilidh rookies on the dance floor. We work with a great troupe of dancers who have specially choreographed routines for your event. Both male and female dancers available.
