We begin our celebrations tonight with a three course dinner in the restaurant followed by an evening of live music and dancing in the ballroom!


It's Christmas Eve, wake up and enjoy a hearty Scottish breakfast. Take time out this morning to relax and visit the leisure club, before a light lunch in the Kingfisher Restaurant. A glass of bubbly precedes a delicious three course Christmas Eve dinner, followed by tea and coffee in the lounge. There will be an evening of dancing and live music in the ballroom. For those attending Midnight Service there will be hot soup served upon your return.


MERRY CHRISTMAS! Begin this special day with a glass of bucks fizz and full Scottish breakfast. Build up an appetite by enjoying a stroll around the beautiful town of Fort William before joining us for a traditional Christmas Day lunch in the afternoon. A very special visitor will be arriving with a small gift for everyone! Toast the Queen's Speech with a glass of bubbly then relax and let your food settle. An appetising finger buffet will be served early evening followed by a night of fabulous entertainment with dancing and fun.


Boxing Day - enjoy a leisurely full Scottish breakfast with plenty of tea and coffee to set you up again after last night before we embark on a days excursion of the scenic local area where you can work off yesterday's indulgence. We'll return to the hotel in time for dinner and then it's party time again when we will be dancing in the ballroom.


Enjoy your breakfast before we bid a fond farewell to Fort William and set off on our journey back to Cumbria.
