Taylor Swift is set to receive a civic gift on behalf of Edinburgh as she takes to the stage at Murrayfield on this weekend.

The capital has heralded the arrival of the global pop sensation by creating a hamper celebrating the best of the city and Scotland.

Contents include a bespoke Edinburgh 900 Tartan guitar strap made by master tailors Kinloch Anderson.

It is hoped that the US superstar will use one of the guitar straps during her performances and sign a second, which would then be auctioned with the proceeds going towards the One City Trust charity, which combats inequality and social exclusion in Edinburgh.

The exclusive guitar straps, of which only two exist are inscribed with the text “Fàilte chridheil gu Dùn Èideann” – A heartfelt welcome to Edinburgh.
