Join our Hogmanay House Party 2018

Monday 31st December 2018 to Wednesday 2nd January 2019

Our fantastic Hogmanay House Party is a two-night bed & breakfast break, including afternoon tea on arrival, Champagne reception, five-course Hogmanay Dinner and Ceilidh on the 31st December and Hogmanay Party and Brunch on New Year’s Day. This year we are excited to welcome the Grouse Ceilidh Band from Glasgow to entertain us. Have a look at their video and see what is in store! Hogmanay is the highlight of the winter season at Knockderry Country House and thus our rooms book up quite quickly. To ensure your reservation and avoid disappointment, we recommend that you book as soon as possible.

We don’t sell our Hogmanay Package or the party online so if you would like further details or wish to book, call 01436 842283.

Relax in the drawing room meeting fellow house guests over afternoon tea before joining us for our Hogmanay Champagne reception from 6.30 pm – enjoy a glass of fizz and some canapés.

1st January 2019

Brunch is served from 10 am – 3 pm.

After a relaxed start, why not enjoy a traditional New Year’s Day walk or for the hardy a visit to Rhu Marina to watch the traditional Ne’er Day swim or perhaps join fellow ‘dippers’ taking to the sea…Chilly!

New Year’s Day brunch is a tradition not to be missed at Knockderry House, and the perfect preparation before a bracing walk in the sea loch air.

Dinner is served in the Restaurant from 7 pm.
