A Guide to Hogmanay in Inverness 2019

Celebrate Hogmanay in Inverness

In Scotland, we do New Year’s Eve just a little differently. Firstly, it’s not called New Year’s Eve. it’s Hogmanay! The festival originated with the Vikings and their huge winter solstice celebrations. Today in Scotland, we party so much on the last night of the year that we need two bank holidays (January 1st and 2nd) to recover afterwards!

Hogmanay at The Kingsmills

At the Kingsmills, we bring you a glittering Inverness Hogmanay Gala Dinner so you can celebrate in style. We also have luxury accommodation on site. So, book a room and you won’t have to travel far after you’ve partied the night away.

It’s Party Time!

Welcome in the New Year at our fabulous Hogmanay Gala Dinner. If you’re staying at the hotel, you can check-in from 3 pm, so you’ve got time to kick-back and relax in your luxurious room and perhaps have a spa or beauty treatment. Then, get yourself glammed-up for the big event!

Start the celebrations with a chilled glass of bubbly on arrival at our Hogmanay Gala Dinner or a unique Highland cocktail. 

Then, relish a delicious 5-course dinner with dancing, music and entertainment from a “select crew” from folk-rock band Torridon and our resident DJ, Andy Belby. Of course, there’ll be another a glass of bubbly to toast the bells at midnight, not forgetting some traditional Haggis, Neeps and Tatties at 1 am to keep you dancing!

Recover in Luxury

When you’re all partied out in the wee sma’ hours, what could be better than to sink into a comfortable bed in a luxury Kingmills hotel room? Book a couple of nights with us, and you’ll have plenty of time to relax and recover.

Enjoy New Year’s Day in Inverness

There’s nothing like waking up to a hearty Scottish breakfast after a big night out! And, a Kingsmills breakfast is sure to hit the spot! Take some time to relax in the hotel, perhaps with a refreshing dip in the pool, or a rejuvenating spa treatment.

If you’re feeling up to it, there are lots of beautiful routes nearby, just perfect for a cold, crisp New Year’s Day walk. Or, hit the shops in Inverness for some January sales bargain-hunting.
