 Festive Gourmet Hogmanay Dinner......seafood, traditional Highland haunch of venison, Aberdeen Angus, wonderful puddings, fine Scottish cheeses and much more besides! 

After dinner the New Year Party will begin with live Scottish Ceilidh music,  with Roya Maclean, dancing, party games and at "the bells" a rousing chorus of "Auld Lang Syne" followed by dancing into the wee small hours.   (If you can play the pipes, accordian or any instrument bring it along ...the more the merrier). 



New Year's Day

THE MORNING AFTER THE NIGHT BEFORE...........Rise and shine into the New Year with a hearty Scottish brunch served between 10 and 11am.  Revive yourself with a glass or two of Buck's Fizz .....Savour our essential festive porridge laced with a drop of the "Famous Grouse", try Lady Claire's kedgeree with fresh smoked haddock and subtle aromatic spices specially designed to perk up the taste buds, or maybe a traditional breakfast is what you really, really want!

The day is yours to do as you please ~ blow away the cobwebs with a walk to the Falls of Rogie and the View Rock - excellent panoramic views of the valley. If you want to go further afield  there's First Footing at Fort George with Medeival jousting, 
fun and games for all the family or enjoy a Loch Ness cruise on the "Jacobite Queen" with a stop off at  Urquhart Castle.

The evening is spent relaxing and enjoying 
another super
