A Guid New Year tae Ane an Aa
(old Scots language to wish 'a good new year to everyone)!

Bring in the bells in style at Glenapp Castle's New Year House Party. This three-night stay offers you luxurious accommodation, pipers, ceilidhs, black ties and banquets, and lots of fun with an ice-curling competition plus much more!

What it Includes...

30 December
  • Arrive in time for a Champagne afternoon tea, and enjoy listening to Glenapp's pianist playing the baby grand piano.
  • Get settled in and relax by the roaring open fires, or enjoy exploring the Glenapp Estate, including the unique Italian Gardens inspired by Gertrude Jekyll.
  • Come and meet your fellow house party guests over pre-dinner drinks and canapés in the drawing-room, accompanied by the twinkling sound of Glenapp's resident harpist.
  • A 3-course gourmet dinner is served, with coffee and petits-fours in the lounge, and perhaps a speciality whisky nightcap before heading off to bed.
New Year's Eve
  • Enjoy a traditional Scottish breakfast before you head off for a day of fun with the castle's New Year Curling Bonspiel in Stranraer. Take notes from your coaches, they're some of the finest in the world!
  • Afternoon tea is served before heading back to the castle.
  • The black-tie Hogmanay party begins with a Champagne reception in the drawing room, followed by a magnificent 6-course banquet dinner with wines.
  • Enjoy Scottish Pipers, Dancers, and the traditional 'beating retreat'. Then kick off those shoes and dance the night away at the Scottish Ceilidah.
  • A glass of Champagne at midnight, along with a piper or two, will bring in 'the bells' Glenapp-style. Join friends and family with Auld Lang Syne and dance through to the wee small hours.
1 January 2025
  • Happy New Year!
  • A lazy and leisurely brunch will be served, perhaps with the offer of a Bloody Mary for anyone who needs!
  • An exciting afternoon of activities, with an interactive falconry display with magnificent birds of prey, or find your inner Robin Hood with an archery lesson and game.
  • Warm up with a cream tea and capture the moment with the in-house caricaturist.
  • A 3-course gourmet dinner is served, followed by a prize-giving for the winners of the curling competition and evening entertainment. Who will be crowned Glenapp King or Queen of the Curling Bonspiel this year?
