Imagine the delights of a traditional House Party…

New Year

Looking for great food, great wine and great company this New Year?  Look no further...

Join us for a special two day break as described below.


Your two day break begins on New Year's Eve, with a delicious Afternoon Tea served to you in the Drawing Room on your arrival - but take care not to over-indulge lest you spoil your appetite for dinner!

Black Tie is requested for this evening, which begins with a glass of Champagne and a delicious selection of Canapes to set the mood.  Dinner takes the form of a Gala Menu, and we have selected wines to accompany each course - all that remains is for you to sit back and enjoy the occasion!

Weather permitting, there will be a short burst of fireworks in the garden just before midnight, then a chorus of Auld Lang Syne as Big Ben strikes midnight, followed by Haggis, Neeps and Tatties served, in time-honoured tradition, with a 'wee dram'.

Then it's up to you, and in case you are one of the party faithful, don't worry because breakfast will be served until 10am on New Year's Day!

New Year's Day is at leisure.  A Brunch Menu will be available from noon until 2pm in the restaurant or bar, and Afternoon Tea will be served throughout the afternoon.

Dinner this evening is a carved Buffet, accompanied by a little light entertainment!


The hotel is now fully booked for this coming New Year
