Here at CLC Duchally Country Estate, we’ve arrived at one of our favourite times of the year. As the days get cooler, our resort turns into a real winter wonderland where families come together in our cosy lodges, where afternoons are spent reading or playing games around warm fireplaces, and where, if we are lucky, the 27 acres of private parkland are covered in a fine sheet of snow! We start planning the festive program very early in the year here, to make sure you and your family experience one of the best Christmas breaks in Scotland. Here are some of the highlights.

Christmas Entertainment

More than just December 25th, at CLC Duchally Country Estate we celebrate every day of the Christmas break in true Highland spirit. The evening entertainment program includes mince pies, mulled wine and live carols on Christmas Eve, with live music on December 26th, a whisky tasting on December 27th, a quiz night on December 28th, and more live music on December 29th. For New Year’s Eve and our Hogmanay celebrations, we’ll say goodbye to 2018 and hello to 2019 with a live piper and music in the Whisky Bar from 8pm to late.

Christmas Day Dining

At CLC Duchally Country Estate, we take the stress out of Christmas Day and leave our guests free to relax and enjoy this special time with their families. Our chefs have planned a delicious Christmas Day menu, starting with a full Perthshire breakfast in the morning, followed by a four-course traditional Christmas lunch, including roast turkey and all the trimmings, in our award-winning restaurant, Monteaths. Bookings are advised.

A Special Visitor

Of course, no Christmas break would be complete without a visit from Santa Claus who will deliver presents to children on Christmas afternoon, along with a generous sprinkle of festive magic.

Christmas holidays in Scotland to remember

Away from the seasonal program, there’s no shortage of resort facilities for all the family to enjoy during your Christmas break in Scotland. In our leisure centre, the heated indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, and spa, are ideal to recharge body and soul no matter the season or treat yourself or your loved ones to a rejuvenating massage by our on-resort beautician Brenda. Of course, our stunning natural setting also offers an array of walking opportunities.

A note to remember:

Check-in dates on resort this Christmas are December 24th, 27th and 30th, while check-out dates are December 27th, 30th and January 2nd.
