Burns Weekend

By January 13, 2016 April 9th, 2018 No Comments

One of Scotland’s best loved cultural events is celebrated every year on or around January 25th – the birthday of Scottish national treasure, the poet Robert ‘Rabbie’ Burns.

This year, CLC Duchally Country Estate is hosting a special ‘Burns Weekend’, with their special Burns Night Dinner on offer for two nights – on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th January 2016.

The resort’s award-winning chefs have put together a wonderful three course menu – for just £30 per person – including haggis, baked salmon, wild duck and steak. The regular restaurant menu will also be available to ensure the widest possible choice for guests.

There will be a programme of live musical entertainment on both nights for all to enjoy in the heart of the Highlands at CLC Duchally Country Estate.

Scottish duo ‘Pure Malt’ will be performing on Saturday 23rd, while the ever popular songstress Sandy Marshall will entertain on Sunday 24th.

Booking is essential for what will be a popular weekend of food, drink and entertainment.
