Luxury Christmas Vacations in Edinburgh
While one should never dwell on the past I can’t help but think back to this time last year when we were in the process of finalising one of the finest luxury Christmas vacations in Edinburgh River & Green have ever worked on.
The results of our efforts were, (if I do say so myself) spectacular! Our clients flew in from the USA on a private jet we had arranged for them directly into Edinburgh Airport. From the airport there they were collected by chauffeur service and were transported into the city centre to the Caledonian Waldorf Astoria where they were staying for a week in a stunning suite.
Our clients spent their week dining in Michelin starred restaurants, taking in the sights and sounds of Edinburgh at Christmas, shopping and being chauffeured around by yours truly to visit as many historical landmarks as possible.
It is hard to describe now the magic of Edinburgh at Christmas (it’s only November so it seems an age away) and there is no way to do justice in writing to the luxury vacation our clients enjoyed, luckily that is not what I’m trying to do. What I really want to do is explore how I can make our luxury Christmas vacations in Edinburgh that little bit more special. I have an idea which I will outline below, and of course, it involves hunting!
Luxury Christmas Vacations in Edinburgh – With Hunting
Day 1 – Arrive in Edinburgh Airport, chauffeur service to The Caledonian Waldorf Astoria. Dinner at 21212 ( Michelin-star)
Day 2 – After breakfast your chauffeur will collect you and drive you to the Scottish Borders for a day of pheasant hunting. Return to Edinburgh in the evening, explore the outdoor Christmas market, dinner at Restaurant Martin Wishart ( Michelin-star)
Day 3 – After breakfast your chauffeur will collect you and drive you to the harbour town of North Berwick where you will have the opportunity to play a round of golf on the beautiful North Berwick West links Course. Return to Edinburgh in the evening for cocktails at the underground secret speak-easy bar Panda & Sons, dinner at The Kitchin ( Michelin-star)
Day 4 – After breakfast your chauffeur will collect you and drive you to the Scottish Borders for a day of pheasant and partridge hunting with duck flighting in the evening. Return to Edinburgh, dinner at Number One at the Balmoral Hotel ( Michelin-star)
