December at Douneside

December is a magical time at Douneside. Come join us - we'll have the fires lit and ready.

Our restaurant will be serving a special festive lunch, afternoon tea with a twist and dinner menu throughout December. You can choose to dine in our restaurant or, if you're organising a work or family get- together why not request to dine in our library? Our library can hold up to 12 guests and its a lovely room for everyone to get-together, catch up and celebrate the run up to Christmas. We'd be delighted to help organise your event. If you'd rather not worry about who is driving home, we've got a festive overnight stay offer, so you can make the most of your evening.

Our Christmas package starts on the 23rd December. This is a wonderful, four night, full board package where you can truly relax and enjoy the magic of Christmas - we'll take care of everything, including making sure Santa pops by on Christmas morning!

New Year is celebrated with a bang at Douneside (quite literally, our fireworks display is renowned!) and it starts on the 30th December. Our Hogmanay Package is a three night, full board stay - don't forget your dancing shoes as it includes a traditional Scottish Hogmanay celebration.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you'd like more information about any of our December festivities. Email us at or call us on 013398 81230.
