24RT 006 – The Admiration of Art

Kept hidden from public display, the late David Bowie over the years amassed a large collection of artwork including many works by Scottish artists, a number of whom we are lucky enough to own and display pieces by at the hotel.

The incredible collection which was auctioned earlier this year, included a number of pieces by Peter Howson, Alan Davie and John Bellany. It shows a true appreciation of the works of these artists and emphasises the pride we have in being lucky enough to display their works on the walls of our hotel. David Bowie was said to be a close friend of John Bellany and hung his work next to that of the likes of Tintoretto; Bellany quoting ‘He told me he thought my work stood up very well in such company.’

Earlier this month saw the addition of a second Gerald Laing piece gracing our staircase. It took relocating ‘Strategy’ by Douglas Thomson to another area of the hotel, but ‘Domestic Perspective’ now sits proudly alongside his other piece ‘The Kiss’ which was very popular with guests this year. We hope you will like it!

Our hotel is open to all to view the art collection which is displayed throughout the bar and entire staircase up to the third floor – please feel welcome to explore the collection along with our art book which gives you an insight into the artists and their inspiration.

24RT 004 – “Life is a Bubble”

When we find something that is truly unique, we do tend to follow it all the way through…

We like being unique. We like having something unique. From our rooms, to our art collection, to our whisky menu – and now our new Prosecco adds to that list.

How did we discover it? Well, that’s all down to the owner, Alan Campbell – fully deserved props to him for discovering this number in a restaurant in Nice.

What did we do next? We got in touch directly with the vineyard, had many a conversation with Cinzia Canzian – winemaker – ordered a case to be flown over so we could all sample it to make sure it wasn’t just the sun, sand and sea of Nice that made it really stand out, got an expert opinion (thanks Tarquin) and the rest is history. Now, four weeks later, we’re stocked up on a remarkable Prosecco that you just cannot find anywhere in Scotland, let alone the rest of the UK.

And to celebrate the arrival of our specially sourced Prosecco, we’re offering you the chance to put your taste buds to the test every Thursday 5-10pm until the end of August. If you can correctly tell us which is our Alice Prosecco and which is our Bernard Figuet Champagne in a free blind tasting, you’ll receive a complimentary dessert from our evening menu – perfect to enjoy with a glass of your favourite of the two Proseccos.

What makes the Prosecco so special you ask? I think the vineyard can answer that one better than I can…
