Friday 30th December 2022

Start your Hogmanay celebrations with afternoon tea in the Drawing Room and savour the  spectacular views overlooking the infamous River Tay.  Relax and rewind, and prepare to join your fellow guests for a welcome evening cocktail reception with canapés which is followed by a delicious Dinner. We have included specially chosen wines to complement Chef's specially selected menu.

Saturday 31st December 2022

Enjoy a traditional hearty Scottish breakfast before spending a relaxed day exploring the Perthshire countryside, visiting a few of the local little towns or taking a stroll along the River and throughout the Ballathie Estate. 

Return to an informal light lunchbefore preparing for the big night ahead.

Heed the call of the Piper and join fellow guests for Champagne Cocktails and canapés prior to the magnificent Black Tie Dinner created by Chef Scott Scorer and his talented team. Dinner will be accompanied by fine wines carefully chosen to match each course.

After dinner, let the festivities continue with music and dancing. Champagne will be served at "The Bells" to welcome in the New Year and dancing will continue through to the 'wee sma' hours'. A light late supper of sandwiches will be available for those who wish to continue partying.

Sunday 1st January 2023

Ne'er Day morning brunch is served at a leisurely pace with Bucks Fizz.  Take part in our exciting Treasure Hunt with treats along the way or just relax and enjoy the day. Perhaps have a drive in the beautiful Perthshire countryside, a leisurely walk in the grounds or nearby Woodland Trust Scotland Kinclaven Wood. Or take the rare opportunity to enjoy doing nothing, sit by the fire and enjoy simple conversation.  We will pull out the board games for you, such a simple pleasure and play until afternoon tea is served.

A leisurely paced evening with our Grand Buffet Dinner, served at your own pace.
