Born in Orviedo, Patricia Urquiola is one of the most versatile and prolific designers in Europe today, with a roster of clients that many of her contemporaries would kill for: Dior, Louis Vuitton, B&B Italia, Salvatore Ferragamo, BMW and dozens more. Over her career, her unconventional eye and warm aesthetic approach has turned from furniture to interiors to architecture, and have won her so many ‘Designer of the Year’ awards, it’s very possible she has had to design a cabinet to keep them in. Smith hotel aficionados will spot her hand in the innovative and colourful look of Das Stue in Berlin, and Urquiola’s credentials as an architectural designer are on resplendent display in the lacework- and origami-inspired interiors of the Mandarin Oriental Barcelona.
There’s no shortage of on-trend eateries north of the border. Venture off the beaten path with Foodie Trails, a downloadable guide to fresh-from-the-glens produce and unbeatable views. Smoked over hot oak chips in the charming fishing town that gives them their name, Arbroath Smokies are popular with in-the-know chefs (and succulent in fish pies). Housed in an original croft house on Skye, The Three Chimneys is celebrated for its Michelin-star Scottish cuisine and inspiring sea views.
In Glasgow, stock up on handcrafted cheeses and oatcakes from IJ Mellis before catching the train to Balloch: the tranquil shores of Loch Lomond make an idyllic setting for a picnic. After a round of golf on its prestigious course, hole up at Smith & Family favourite Gleneagles Hotel. Two-Michelin-star Andrew Fairlie is hard to beat for elegant Scottish dining, but we’d also settle for the afternoon tea: three decadent tiers of delicate finger sandwiches, scrumptious cakes and lashings of cream.
