Tuesday 24th December 2019- Christmas Eve

Arrive in plenty of time to settle into your room before relaxing by the fireside and enjoying a fabulous Afternoon Tea. Start the evening celebrations with a welcome pre-dinner aperitif before making your way to a very special Christmas Eve dinner in the Restaurant. For those who wish to attend church, there is a watch-night service at nearby Kinclaven Church, (transport provided). Mulled wine and mince pies will be served on return from the church. Please be sure  to leave a dram for Santa!

Christmas Day

Start the day with a hearty Christmas morning breakfast. Relax with your family and friends opening presents, after which take a short leisurely walk around the grounds, Perhaps have a drive in the beautiful Perthshire countryside, or simply sit by the fire and play traditional board games and enjoy the gentler pace of life, whilst Chef and his brigade work hard to prepare sumptuous festive fayre.

Afternoon Tea will be available from 4.00pm. We serve the same Christmas menu for lunch and dinner, we recommend that our resident guests take Dinner as an option as lunchtime is very busy with non-residents.

Join us for a glass of Champagne and canapes before making your way into the restaurant to enjoy a fabulous feast - accompanied by hats and crackers.

Our fabulous Christmas Day menu will be available shortly

N.B:  A table will be reserved for dinner unless you specify otherwise at time of booking.
