What Makes Highland Scotland the Perfect Destination for a 2020 Christmas Getaway

2020 has undoubtedly been the year of the staycation, with countless visitors discovering why the majesty of the Scottish Highlands makes it one of the best places in Britain for a short break.

While Scotland has been an incredible place to visit from when spring has sprung through to the first moment of autumn’s fall, there’s truly no better time to head to the highlands than at Christmas time.

Looking for the perfect destination to get to truly get away from it all this year? Here is why Scotland is the perfect destination for your winter getaway…

Christmas breaks in Scotland at Dunalastair Hotel Suites start from just £699 for a two-night stay, but this great value package is far from the only reason to head north for the winter. The breathtaking beauty, warm hospitality, and of course, our famous five-course festive feast are guaranteed to make it a holiday to remember.

The Scottish Highlands…. Where Dreams of a White Christmas Come True

Dunalastair Hotel Suites - Winter Snow

Enchanted lochs glisten in the gentle glow of winter sun and frost-dusted firs line the open roads that weave lazily along the foothills of snow-capped mountains. Nowhere is quite as beautiful at Christmas than the Scottish Highlands.

Every year, the Highlands receive more snow than any other part of Highland Scotland – sometimes as much as 100 days of snowfall per year compared to just 15 – 20 in the lowlands. So, whether you’re dreaming of a white Christmas or always wanted to go walking in a winter wonderland, this is the place to make those dreams come true.

Where You Can Celebrate the Season Safely

Whether you’re out for a Christmas morning stroll or watching the sun go down by the loch, you rarely have to worry about social distancing while out and about in the Highlands. The area is so vast, meaning you can enjoy breathing in that crisp Highland air without a care in the world.

Even once you step inside, Dunalastair Hotel Suites have done all we can to make our hotel a one of the safest places to spend Christmas:

  • Faster check-in times reduced from our usual 90 seconds to 60 seconds. An express check out facility; these changes are implemented in order to reduce any unnecessary gatherings and limit contact
  • Hand sanitisers available in our suites and throughout the hotel
  • You’ll be asked to reserve a table for breakfast, just as you might do for an evening meal. This is designed to ensure safe social distancing
  • You’ll now be served by our waiting staff at our breakfast buffet stations rather than the self-serving facility we previously offered
  • Our restaurant Monadh Dining is now open until 10 pm in line with the latest Covid-19 measures announced by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon (correct as of 6th November)

Our measures have earned us the AA Covid Confident Award, although we’re not ones to rest on our laurels.  We continue to monitor the situation and adjust to keep the hotel the safest place for our guests.
