Relax in a historic castle which still retains many original features. Explore Ross-shire and perhaps meet old and new friends.

Christmas Eve
Arrive for an afternoon check-in beside a roaring fire, then meet your fellow guests for tea/ coffee and mince pies in the Green Lady Bar. A three-course table d’hote dinner will be served in Turrets Restaurant, then meet the team over a glass of mulled wine and a late evening ghost and history tour of the castle.

Christmas Day
Enjoy a Buck Fizz breakfast and, afterwards, perhaps enjoy the Dingwall Circular Walk (directly behind the castle) to walk up an appetite for Christmas Day lunch, a five-course festive delight! Relax in front of the fire with board games, puzzles or watch the Queen's Speech. Round off the day with a light buffet in the evening.

Boxing Day
Start the day with a full Scottish breakfast, then take in the Inverness Sales or explore this beautiful area – the castle is within easy reach of the east and west coasts. Return to tea/coffee and Christmas cake in the lounge in the afternoon with an informal whisky tasting or Mocktail making for the younger guests, or those preferring a lighter option. Finally enjoy a three-course table d’hote dinner in Turrets Restaurant and a chance to relax.
