Visit Loch Ness for an authentic Scottish Hogmanay experience this year. Highland hospitality will be flowing in nearby hostelries, with a number of exciting events taking place in the local villages as well as the nearby Highland capital of Inverness.
Revellers are invited to gather at the loch-side Drumnadrochit Hotel and accompany the whisky-filled Quaich cup on a piped procession through the streets before enjoying a celebratory ceilidh to see in the New Year.
For those who prefer to experience the craic in the city, the region’s capital, Inverness, offers a selection of exciting events. The city’s annual Red Hot Highland Fling features music from local pipers and fiddle players who will keep the party going through into 2011.
There is no better place than Loch Ness to clear heads following the festivities. Take a boat trip or enjoy outdoor activities such mountain biking, hiking and horse riding.
Hogmanay revellers can stay in comfort The Waterside Hotel in Inverness, where a two-night Hogmanay break including champagne, dinner dance and full Scottish breakfast is available from £195 per person.
