Christmas spirit in the Highlands

Christmas is a wonderful time of year wherever you are. The joys of family and friends, love, and laughter. It doesn’t get much better than some good old Christmas spirit.

Now, just imagine a Christmas lunch without having the pressure of preparing and cooking any food, or the time spent cleaning up afterwards.

Imagine a Christmas evening where you can enjoy a drink without having to book a taxi home.

Imagine a Christmas experience where you know everything is taken care of… So, you can relax and enjoy!

Imagine a Christmas location surrounded by snow-dusted mountain tops, crisp morning forest walks, and drinks sitting by an open log fire. Now that’s Christmas spirit in the Highlands.

Enjoy your Highland Christmas at the Lovat, a 3 day experience of making new memories, relaxing with loved ones, and enjoying good food. Here’s a taste of what you could be looking forward to…
