Celebrate New Year in the Heart of the Scottish Highlands
When you ask most people the best place to celebrate New Year, Scotland will often be the first choice. Steeped in the history of generations, the celebrations have an authenticity, which draws crowds from far and wide. Hogmanay is the Scottish word for ‘the last day of the year’, enabling revellers to celebrate the incoming New Year.
The Viking’s pagan Norse roots took a firm hold in Scottish soil, and to this day, they exert influence over traditional Scottish Hogmanay parties. Such as the annual torchlight procession in Edinburgh, which attracts more than 40,000 people each year. The fire was a symbol of rebirth and new beginnings to the Vikings, so they celebrated with huge bonfires and by rolling blazing tarred barrels downhill during the winter solstice.
The song Auld Lang Syne is equally synonymous with Scotland, especially as it was written by Robert Burns in 1788. The title translates to ‘in days gone’, while the lyrics ask if we should forget old times but remember friendships. What better way to celebrate the New Year than a New Year break in Scotland, remembering your own friendships in true style?
Why is Highland Scotland the Ideal Destination for a Romantic New Year Break or Honeymoon Scotland Package?
It can be very romantic to experience the contrasts of Highland Scotland with a loved one. Granted, venturing outside, you will have to wrap up warm at this time of year, but on the upside returning to the snug welcome of Dunalastair Hotel suites will quickly restore you.
The contrasts of scenery continually change in Scotland as well. A sunlit valley can be transformed by a distant shower, while frosted heather on a morning walk highlights the beauty of the hillsides.
Looking for the perfect destination to truly get away from it all this year? Here’s what you can expect when you visit us this New Year
Why Does it Snow more in the Scottish Highlands?
By a geographical quirk of fate, the Highland mountains are often topped with snow bearing clouds. Drifting across the Highland valleys these clouds regularly deposit their snow, so much so that 100-days of snowfall a year are not uncommon. Snow can transform the landscape from the multitude of browns and greens to an even white covering. Taking a walk in fresh snow you will discover from the footprints the multitude of animals and birds that live nearby.
Planning for the New Year 2021
As a destination for Christmas and New Year breaks Scotland ranks high on a lot of people’s lists. Bookings at the Dunalastair Hotel Suites reflect this popularity and rooms tend to sell out quickly. So, booking early is recommended.
On your way to a romantic trip to Scotland you will drive up through the valleys and snow-capped mountains as an introduction. You will no doubt spot some wildlife and birds on your journey.
On arrival at the hotel our guest ambassadors will welcome you and offer a complimentary yuletide drink to enjoy in the warmth of the lounge. You can then check in and make your way to your premium hotel suite, where you can unpack, unwind and take in the spectacular views.
Later in the afternoon you can join us in the restaurant, Monadh Dining, to enjoy a memorable afternoon tea while finding your bearings.
December 31st Romantic New Year’s Eve
If it’s Scottish it’s bound to be hearty and that’s the way of the traditional Scottish breakfast at Dunalastair Hotel Suites. Top quality, local produce, expertly cooked will help to set you up for the day. Then take your time to venture out for a walk and capture some of the stunning scenery or enjoy a relaxing day in the guest lounge or the privacy of your room.
We invite you to join us for a celebratory drink as we commence the good cheer towards midnight. There will be some light entertainment before serving our New Year package.
We understand it might have been a late-night, so don’t feel compelled to rush down to breakfast. Make the most of a lie-in and join us later for our special brunch, which is served until noon.
