Arrive at The Crinan Hotel on Monday 30th December 2019.

Come on in to the warmth of a cosy fire, try our delicious mincemeat pies and shortbread with a glass of bubbly or a cream tea.

Later you can relax over dinner in the Westward Restaurant and prepare for the festivities.


A lazy day in anticipation of a lively evening. In the morning there will be a boat trip aboard Sandy Campbell's Redbay Stormforce Cabin RIB Venture West to the islands or the Gulf of Corryvreckan if the weather permits. This is an ideal way to blow away the old year in preparation for the New Year! Land lubbers can lie in and hold the fort. This boat trip is amazing fun and is included in your Hogmanay stay.

If you wish to explore there are wonderful and beautiful walks for all abilities and winter is a great time to see otters, deer and a great selection of birds. A short drive away is Kilmartin Glen with its ancient standing stones. Crinan lies in Dalriada which is the oldest Kingdom in Scotland and the Ancient Kings were crowned here. Riding can be arranged at Lunga or clay pigeon shooting at Brenfield.

Prior to dinner the Ryan family will be hosting a Champagne reception in the Gallery Bar which is enclosed on the hotel roof.

Then you will be piped down to the Westward Restaurant by our favourite piper to enjoy a sumptuous Black Tie (or a Touch of Tartan) Dinner to music played by internationally acclaimed fiddler Archie McAllister and Sileas Sinclair on the accordion.

  • There will be Scottish reels as the evening progresses towards Ne'rday.

  • Dress Code: Black Tie or a Touch of Tartan.
  • The piper will bring in the Bells.
  • The hotel will pour you a glass of champagne and we will bring in 2020 together.
  • The reeling and wheeling will carry on.
  • Then Haggis Neeps and Tatties will be served before you retire.


“A Happy New Year to One and All!”

There is no hurry, breakfast will be served until 10am
and lunch will be served in the Seafood Bar from 12 noon.

In the afternoon Mrs Ryan (aka Frances Macdonald) will give a short painting demonstration.

At 5.30 p.m. there will be a showing of the classic 1945 movie “I Know Where I’m Going” (part of which was set near Crinan in the Gulf of Corryvreckan) in The General's Bar (which has a selection of over 50 whiskies to help to get you in the mood).

Later, enjoy an evening of entertainment with a variety of musicians organised by Archie McAllister.  We invite you enjoy another delicious dinner then, as is customary at Crinan, we will invite guests to contribute a song or some other party piece. There will be a special prize for the least inhibited performer.

Departure on Thursday 2nd January 2020 after breakfast.

Prices for “The Three Day Package” start at £695.00 per person to £945.00 per person for a double or shared twin room.
