The historic Scottish capital is welcoming visitors back with a wealth of new establishments. The Gleneagles Hotel Group is set to launch its first city hotel this fall, Gleneagles Townhouse, with 33 rooms, a roof terrace and a members’ club. Recently opened on the former site of a renowned brewery, contemporary hotel Moxy Edinburgh Fountain­bridge features a rooftop bar overlooking the city’s historic castle and a built-in cinema. And a new fine-­dining restaurant, Lalique, an hour’s drive from the city at Scotland’s oldest working distillery, The Glenturret, launches in July and will be helmed by Michelin-star-winning chef Mark ­Donald—and feature whisky as a key ingredient in its contemporary Scottish cuisine. —Madeline Roache
