The Balmoral introduces a “Tartan Butler”

From bath butlers to romance butlers, you thought you’d heard it all. Nope. Now, The Balmoral wants to help you trace your Scottish heritage with its new “Tartan Butler.”

Guests of Edinburgh’s grand dame hotel, a Rocco Forte property, can enlist the Tartan Butler’s services in tracing their lineage back to find their original family tartan. (The butler has apparently traced his own clan back to the early 13th century.)

Once you’ve found your tartan, the butler can arrange a trip to the city’s top kilt shop or a bespoke tour of your family’s home region. Prices, of course, depend on the requested experience.
