Location for Village Hogmanay Ceilidh - Borders/Dumfries area
Good morning all,
I'd really appreciate some suggestions about where to spend Hogmanay this year. We will be a group of twelve who will be hiring a house for the weekend, and are looking for a village location in the Borders/Dumfries & Galloway area.
My husband and I spent a wonderful New Years in Grantown-on-Spey a few years back with a meal at a local hotel (haggis, piping etc!) following by fireworks and a open air ceilidh in the village square. We'd love to recreate this somewhere a bit further south as the Caingorms are unfortunately a bit too far for a weekend trip from Yorkshire. I'm struggling however to find anywhere suitable.
I know many people on this site have recommended Edinburgh - we are looking for (a) somewhere a bit smaller and (b) something a bit cheaper than £47.50 a ticket; any recommendations or suggestions would be greatly received.
Many thanks in advance!
