New Year

Our 4th Hogmanay Ceilidh, starts at 8.00 p.m. until late; it is followed on New Years Day,  at 2.00 p.m. with Nibbles & Drinks. Both free for campers, but please note, we don’t have an alcohol licence, but please feel welcome to bring your own bottle. 

Hogmanay is what Scots call New Year’s Eve – 31 December – the big night that marks the arrival of the new year. Its origins reach back to the celebration of the winter solstice among the Vikings with parties in late December.

An integral part of the Hogmanay partying, which continues very much today, is to welcome friends and strangers, with warm hospitality to wish everyone a Guid New Year. The underlying belief is to clear out the vestiges of the old year, have a clean break and welcome in a young, New Year on a happy note.  New Year Day is when people can join in the entertainment, playing the bagpipes, singing or whatever is their forte, however, others just come to say their farewells to each other before they head for home.
