Christmas in Scotland: Turning The Yuletide To The Scottish Highlands

If you’re looking forward to dashing through the snow with a traditional Christmas in Scotland, why not head on over to the Highlands? With all the bells and whistles of bigger city celebrations, the tranquil Highlands is the perfect place to enjoy traditional Scottish festivities without the hustle and bustle of the noisier, crowded urban alternative.

Shed Some Light On The Festivities

The festivities get under way on the 23rd of November with the Christmas Lights Switch On. Join Santa and the Lord Provost at Inverness Town House as they flick the switch on Christmas in Scotland and mark the start of the festive season. Then head on down to the family carol service at the Old Town Church.

It just wouldn’t be Christmas in Scotland without a fun, family pantomime. From the 2nd of December till the 4th of January, come on down, stop on by, hop a carpet and fly to another Arabian night with the wildly popular Aladdin pantomime. The whirlwind performance from a talented cast will have you singing, dancing, cheering and laughing all through the night.
