Scotland’s Balmoral Hotel now offers offers a “Tartan Butler”

Curious about your Scottish ancestry? Think you can pull of the tartan? Perhaps you should hie thyself to Scotland and embrace your heritage with the new “Tartan Butler” at Rocco Forte’s Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh to guide you.
Andy Fraser, aka the “Tartan Butler” is a master at tracing Scottish heritage, having successfully traced his own clan as far back as the early 13th Century by scouring over 30 variations of the Fraser family tartan.
Although not necessary, guests can relay the names of any known Scottish ancestors to the Tartan Butler even before they arrive at the hotel, and the Butler will establish a connection to one of thousands of clans and traditionally recognized tartans.

Guests have a number of options (prices vary, naturally) – if Fraser tracks down the guest’s clan, he can help arrange a trip to the city’s most established kilt shop, Kinloch Anderson, to have a one of a kind kilt made to reflect the traditional clan kilt design. For those wishing to literally follow in their ancestors’ footsteps, the Tartan Butler could arrange a bespoke tour of the guest’s Scottish region, visiting the place an ancestor was born or spent some part of their life.

We’re pretty sure this is something William Wallace would have heartily approved of.
