Ready to Bring in The Bells?

Some of you might have your Festive celebrations well planned out, however for those not quite there yet, we’ve put together some tips for planning your Hogmanay break away in Scotland.

Scotland has many popular Hogmanay celebrations such as the Edinburgh Street Party and Aberdeen’s Hogmanay celebrations, as well as some lesser known gems, such as the Stonehaven Fireballs Ceremony.


Attending any of these events will definitely begin your New Year with some great memories! View our recent Festive blog that has some fantastic self-catering accommodation recommendations right over here.

If you’d much rather have a quiet, relaxing Hogmanay with a more subtle element of celebration thrown in, we can help there too!
