A Scottish New Year
Knockderry House has been holding memorable Hogmanay parties for guests and visitors to Scotland over 20 years and this year will be no different: the tradition will continue.
This year the programme has been slightly altered to reflect the current challenges but we are determined to offer you the same level of warm Scottish hospitality, great food and traditional entertainment.
Our 2 night inclusive, New Year Break at Knockderry House is a wonderful opportunity to meet up with old friends and see in the New Year on the banks of Loch Long, one of the most beautiful sea lochs in Scotland.

Arrive from 4 pm, for an individual afternoon tea relaxing in front of one of the fires. For those needing to stretch their legs after a long journey and before the evenings festivities, enjoy a short gentle stroll along the sea shore of Loch Long and the Firth of Clyde.
Hogmanay 5 course Dinner : Our Celebration Dinner starts from 7.30 pm with a Piper calling us to dinner. Join the owners Murdo and Beth MacLeod and your fellow guests, for a glass of sparkling wine and some canapes at your table in the Restaurant followed by your special 5 course candlelit Hogmanay Dinner.
