My wife, Joan, is Scottish – and the city holds a very special place in my heart.” The property will be a stunning mix of old and new reflecting the city’s eclectic and energetic style, while remaining true to its historic heritage. Edinburgh has so much to offer as a top travel destination in the UK. “Beyond preserving the building for the future, the new hotel will breathe new life into this important local community.” — Raul Leal, CEO of Virgin Hotels.
