The beating heart of 2017 is about to give way to the drumming of a new year. The beloved Scottish celebration of Hogmanay is upon us, and we at DoubleTree by Hilton Dunblane Hydro encourage you to welcome the new year with one of two fabulous options: our Hogmanay Gala Break and Hogmanay Family Break. So what exactly are we proposing for this iconic annual celebration this year?
The cornerstone of the festive season is unbridled cheer brought on by the winning melange of ample food, drink and entertainment. Here’s how we plan on wining, dining and entertaining you for a memorable Hogmanay.
Suited Up in Style
The Hogmanay Gala Break commences in a black-tie affair held in the elegant Strathallan Suite. Year after year, these lavish surroundings frame our New Year celebrations. A champagne reception will be there to greet you upon your arrival and you can mingle with other guests while reminiscing on how 2017 has been meaningful to you.
Four-Course Gala Dinner by Nick Nairn
Our resident celebrity chef, Nick Nairn, will be in charge of delivering your four-course gala dinner. Fine food from our Hogmanay Gala Dinner menu will be served, guaranteed to make your taste buds swell with content. The Family Hogmanay Break includes a three-choice menu for a Hogmanay meal at The Kailyard. Kids have their own child-friendly options with a simple, tasty main course and dessert they’ll love. Nick’s classic creations with a contemporary twist ensure that both adventurous appetites and hard-to-please palates are catered for exquisitely.
On the first day of the year, you can look forward to our DoubleTree Buffet Breakfast to satiate your longing belly and even the kids’. With an inviting spread of Scottish breakfast staples alongside continental fare, you get another round of feasting on all your eyes can fall on. A hearty breakfast fuels you for all the great things you can do while you’re staying at our hotel in Dunblane.
No party is complete without music and dancing, so we’ve enlisted a cèilidh band and accompanying disco to get you on the dancing floor. There’s nothing like a good boogie with family or friends to inspire that spirit of communion which unites us in welcoming the new year. Our bars will be well-stocked to give you a little extra kick too!
Comfortable Sleeping Quarters in the House
And of course, the best thing about our Hogmanay escapades in Stirlingshire is the fluffy, comfortable bed awaiting you can snuggle in without leaving the building. With your accommodation included in our packages, you don’t have to drive all the way back home or fight for a cab on the busiest night of the year. We’ve made sure all you need is under one roof!
What’s more, waking up in Dunblane will make for a serene, peaceful start to your year. You can explore Stirling in all its grandeur on New Year’s Day and enjoy the restorative effect of the Perthshire landscape in the company of your loved ones.
