Description

In the happy heart of the Highlands, the happy Highland folk open their hearts for a heartfelt Hogmanay happy-fest. They promise that no matter the weather the party will go on, with a ceilidh band, a pipe band, food and drink, fireworks and a lone piper on the castle battlement. Head down to the Sutherland town's square for this famous street party. New Year's Eve in Scotland is known as Hogmanay – a beautiful, drunken, fiery collision of the traditional and the modern. Hogmanay became a big deal in Scotland when Christmas was banned for 400 years and so the Scots perfected the perfect party to mark the end of the year. There's loads of local customs to get involved in including welcoming dark haired gentlemen across one's doorstep, the mass singing of For Auld Lang Syne and general whiskey-induced friendliness.
