Scottish Cottages for the Hogmanay and New Year Break

Edinburgh Hogmanay

Hogmanay is the Scots word for the last day of the year and has become synonymous with exuberant Scottish New Year Celebrations. A fun evening of celebrations and wonderful food, why not enjoy the celebrations at a Scottish cottage or apartment this Hogmanay?

In the cities of Scotland (including Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen) thousands of revellers take to the streets on New Year's Eve to see in the New Year. Building up throughout the evening, Hogmanay is traditionally capped by a lone piper playing just before midnight, followed by the New Year bells and the singing of the traditional Auld Lang Syne.

Of course, each area of Scotland has their own Hogmanay customs and traditions with the widest practised being First Footing - which starts immediately after midnight and involves the first person (preferably a tall dark stranger) over the threshold giving gifts and receiving food in return, bringing good luck for the year ahead.

You will find Hogmanay celebrations across Scotland but popular ones include Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Stirling, Inverness and Stonehaven.
