The General Store has some great offers for Christmas gifts or simply to make your own festive celebrations really special. Their Christmas wine crates offer something for everyone from a great value Party Box to special Classic Selection, with wines chosen to complement the Christmas Feast. The Christmas Hamper would make a wonderful gift and many of the items are exclusive to this selection and are not even available in store! They will be bringing back MR WHIPPY for one night only – free cheeky monkeys for children!!!  There will also be free prosecco and panettone giveaways that evening and they will also be launching their raffle to win a GIANT CHOCOLATE ROBIN (it weighs 5KG!)

For stocking fillers, Dornoch Christmas cards and unusual toys (e.g. Kaleidoscope, clay modelling dinosaur, train whistle) go to Historylinks Museum. On your way stop at Cocoa Mountain for a hot chocolate while you sample and place your Christmas order- they will be running a 544 promotion on the night – every 5th item is free! Their Signature Collection Gift box is very popular (£26).

The award winning Carnegie Whisky Cellars has a range of gifts to tempt you from a Glencairn whisky glass at £6, to a bottle of Wolfburn Small Batch No. 128 at £67.

While in the Courthouse, call in at Aspen Spa and choose a luxury gift or treatment voucher for the lady in your life.  Their Delilah Xmas crackers contain 2 colour intense lipsticks in nude or red shades, a fantastic gift for £28. Voya have released the popular Christmas spice candle (£25) again this year which sold out last year.

No trip to Dornoch would be complete without a visit to Jail Dornoch, which offers a superb selection of unique Scottish gift ideas, jewellery accessories, luxurious cashmere and quality country wear and its sister shop Country Interiors, which is an Aladdin’s cave of beautiful decorative objects, gifts, soft furnishings and furniture.  There will be a 10% discount on the night and customers will enjoy Prosecco and chocolates while they browse.

A visit to Coast Candle Co. awakens the senses, with a range of hand poured fragrant candles in all shapes and sizes. You will be welcomed with a glass of fizz, sweet treats and a complimentary Christmas wax melt. With luxury in mind head up to Links House at Royal Dornoch for their range of J & L Tweed products (make-up bag £30, men’s wash bag £70) and gift vouchers for a special lunch, afternoon tea or dinner.

In High Street you will find Lily & Roux children’s boutique which is offering a fantastic 20% off everything for the late night event only!! They are fully stocked for the party season, and have added a few wooden toys for the run up to Christmas.  Across the road is The Dornoch Bookshop – a fantastic place to browse at any time of year and great for Christmas presents, cards and book tokens. Finally don’t forget Mitchell’s Chemist which has gifts for all the family including perfume, toiletries, mug & sock pack (£15.95), cushions and designer bags.

Why not treat yourself to a cocktail or hot drink at the Castle Hotel at the end of the evening.

New Year in Dornoch

Dornoch’s three day New Year celebration is the perfect mix of dancing, partying, great food and brisk, or leisurely, walks along the beach and family fun and entertainment to please everyone.

At the heart of it all is the famous Hogmanay Street Party in the spectacular setting of the town’s Square with dancing to the Red Reel Ceilidh Band and the lone piper on the Castle tower at midnight to herald fireworks and the New Year. Locals and visitors of all ages will come together to welcome in 2018.

Hogmanay has a range of events and activities leading up to the Street Party but look out for the Labyrinth in Dornoch Cathedral for a moment of quiet in the excitement of the day. Treat yourself to the Black Tie Hogmanay Dinner at Links House. Or if you want to learn the dance steps, you are welcome to join the Social Dancers’ annual party held in the Social Club from 8pm.

New Year’s Day might well start with a hearty breakfast at the Eagle to fuel a day which could include a dip in the sea at noon. Perhaps you will then be ready for a ‘First Footing’ New Year’s lunch at Links House, or visit Cocoa Mountain for their hot chocolate hangover cure!

Royal Dornoch Golf Club holds it first competiiton of the year on 2nd January with those living or holidaying East of Burn v those West of Burn – open to members and visitors.

Do join us for New Year in Dornoch.
