The iconic Edinburgh hotel is saying ‘fáilte’ to Marcas and to celebrate the new partnership he has written a ‘Love letter to The Balmoral’, depicting the romantic history of the hotel and the cultural richness of Scotland.
The Balmoral is renowned for its suite experiences, and the poem will be presented to guests staying in a signature suite when celebrating a proposal, wedding or honeymoon at the hotel.
In addition, when signature suite guests visit the hotel’s jewellery partner, Hamilton & Inches, they will be offered a complimentary engraving of their most treasured line from their poem when they purchase a piece of silverware.
Marcas says, “I’m thrilled to be partnering with the Balmoral in order to bring some literary magic to guests’ experience and to celebrate those special moments through poetry.
“It is an honour and a privilege to be given a window into the workings of a Scottish icon and the lives of the people who pass daily through those revolving doors.”
The poet in residence, or Bàrd air mhuinntireas can be pre-booked by guests staying in a signature suite for a celebration or to commemorate a special occasion.
Imagine having him help you craft your perfect wedding vows, proposal, anniversary or love letter in Gaelic.
Guests can select a pre-written Gaelic poem or develop a bespoke one with Marcas.
Signature suites start at £1,400 per night including breakfast, based on two people sharing.
For those looking to bring their bespoke poetry to life Marcas can also be booked to perform the bespoke piece at a wedding, birthday or other milestone event.
