Nira Caledonia is a bonnie lass, but not in the traditional style of Scottish hotels. It’s an edgy home away from home where original wood floors, funky chandeliers, and designer wallpaper combine with sumptuous details, including a 2,000 pocket sprung mattress and a Nespresso machine accompanied by fresh cookies. Each of the 28 rooms is unique – some come with a Jacuzzi tub, some have access to a private garden – but all retain the Georgian sash windows and detailed cornicing from its neoclassical heyday. John Wilson, the literary lion who wrote by the name of Christopher North, built the townhouse, and Blackwood’s restaurant takes its name from the renowned 19th Century magazine he founded.
