Activity Level:


Treat yourself to an authentic Hogmanay* experience at the comfortable, family run, Woodland House Hotel, in Dumfries, Scotland’s ‘Queen of the South’. Set in a sympathetically restored and extended Grade B-listed Georgian mansion with delightfully traditional yet relaxed surroundings, there’s nowhere better to be to see in the New Year.

On Hogmanay we enjoy a circular tour through the rolling hills of Dumfries and Galloway, including a stop at the famous ‘book town’ of Wigtown, before the celebrations begin with a glass of fizz followed by a four-course Hogmanay Dinner and live entertainment from a local band, culminating in ‘the bells’ at midnight, welcomed in traditional style by a kilted piper. A leisurely New Year’s Day takes us over the border to Cumbria for a scenic drive along the route of Hadrian’s Wall, perhaps the most impressive of all the Roman remains in Britain.

*the etymology of the Scots word for the last day of the year is obscure but is thought to have French, Celtic or Norse origins.


Tour highlights:

  • Traditional Hogmanay dinner and live entertainment
  • Bringing in the New Year to the skirl of the pipes
  • Scenic tour of Dumfries & Galloway, including Wigtown
  • Relaxing drive along the route of Hadrian’s Wall
  • Warm Scottish hospitality in a family-run hotel
