TRIBUTE TO SIR ERNEST IN THE SCOTTISH CAPITAL WHERE HE WORKED
Sir Ernest Shackleton once lived in these premises.
Which is why, in recent years, the owners of Channings Hotel, opened in 1990, have decided to honour the explorer - and attract Shackleton enthusiasts - by creating three Suites and two Rooms on a Shackleton theme.
All the rooms are substantial 'double sized', in the sense that they were created from not one but two former rooms.
Guests can now lie in an enormous bathtub and soak up the Shackleton story from huge prints of the Endurance, on the wall adjacent.
