THE EVENTFUL OCCASION
Why not plan your honeymoon around one of Scotland's top events or festivals?
The Highland Games: Traditional heavy athletic events like tug-o-war and the caber toss, as well as Highland dance competitions, track and field events, and piping, the games are a spectacle like no other. And it all takes place against a scenic Scottish backdrop.
Hogmanay & New Year In Scotland: Hogmanay is what Scots call New Year's Eve - 31 December - the big night that marks the arrival of the new year. Its origins reach back to the celebration of the winter solstice among the Vikings with wild parties in late December. But whatever the scale of the event and wherever it's held, Scotland's Hogmanay celebrations guarantee a warm welcome and more new friends than you ever knew you had, all in a frenzy of goodwill! For an unforgettable Hogmanay break, it's got to be Scotland.
Edinburgh International Festival And Summer Festivals: Over the summer, the Edinburgh festivals bring a wave of color and soaring excitement to the city. Seven spectacular festivals proudly serve up the most incredible smorgasbord of culture you could ever imagine, filling the city's performance venues and event spaces in late June, July, and August.
