Hogmanay In The Highlands - New Year In Scotland

Are you tired of spending New Year packed into an expensive bar, waiting to get served, not being able to hear yourself think, let alone chat to your friends? Well maybe it's time to take matters into your own hands, gather your friends together and head to the highlands for your Hogmanay celebrations this New Year's eve!

Renting a cottage for a few days over New Year is an increasingly popular way of saying farewell to another 12 months, and is especially popular with those who have reached their late twenties and feel that they're done with the hedonistic New Year's Celebrations of their youth.

And it's not difficult to see why hiring a cottage with a group of friends or family is so popular; rather than blowing all your money on one big night out, you'll get to enjoy a long weekend of celebrations that can include other outdoor activities such as walking, fishing or cycling in the nearby countryside. It's also a good opportunity to see a different part of the country that you might be unlikely to visit otherwise.

The Scottish Highlands and islands are especially popular with New Year revellers looking for holiday rental cottages. There are hundreds of properties across the lochs and glens to choose from, depending on how remote you want your new year to be.

The west coast of Scotland offers many secluded, rustic cottages and farmsteads, with crackling log fires and views of beautiful lochs. If you're looking to get a New Year's round of golf in, Fife is the place to go; head for a fisherman's cottage overlooking a harbour for a traditional Scottish experience.

Winter sports fans may even be able to get a couple of days skiing in, although the unpredictable nature of the Scottish weather means that you probably shouldn't set your heart on shooting down the slopes of Glencoe or Cairngorm, but you never know, you could get lucky! For those coming from south of the boarder who don't want to travel too far north, the Scottish Borders are an ideal place to get a taste of Scotland without having to drive for so long.

Whatever part of Scotland you choose for your Hogmanay celebration, you should be able to find a rental cottage to suit your needs. From large houses that will sleep up to 20 people, to cosy couple's cottages ideal for a romantic New Year, forget cramming into a crowded nightclub - this year, why not spend Hogmanay in the Highlands?
