The Balmoral Hotel Edinburgh Tartan - Designed by Kinloch Anderson - Calton Hill

The Balmoral Hotel has shown off its new tartan uniform which will be worn by the hotel’s door staff, concierge and front of house team.

The tartan has been produced by Kinloch Anderson, Tailors and Kiltmakers to the Royal Family over 18 months. The design is inspired by the landscape in Edinburgh and Scotland.

It is very heathery and mossy and reflects the views of city locations which can be seen from the hotel.

The Balmoral Hotel Edinburgh Tartan has been officially registered in the Scottish Register of Tartans.

Commenting on the new tartan design, Hotel Manager Harry Fernandes, said:

“We wanted the new tartan to tie in with the inspiration behind the hotel décor and showcase a modern, elegant twist on tartan design. The new design also complements the hotel lobby which was designed with Edinburgh and Scotland in mind by Rocco Forte Hotels’ Director of Design, Olga Polizzi.

“It has been a fascinating project and a real pleasure working with Kinloch Anderson who have been incredibly passionate about about bringing our vision for our new attire to life.”

John Kinloch Anderson, Chief Executive of Kinloch Anderson, added: “We are delighted to continue our longstanding relationship with The Balmoral and have enjoyed working together to create a tartan and uniform befitting of the uniqueness that is this iconic landmark property.”
