Celebrate the Party Season in Scotland

If you are fed up of doing every single New Year’s Eve with the same dinner, why don’t you plan an original getaway this time? Run away from routine at least for the first days of 2012, travelling somewhere else instead of having the usual meal, at the regular place with the same people. Call your friends, invite your partner or take your family to an original funny break.

Start 2012 in the most special way at Edinburgh’s Hogmanay. Incredible bands playing for a super crowded audience of people from every corner of the globe is the perfect party to receive the Olympic Year. The highlight of these three days of fun, performances, dances, and games to welcome the new year is the Torchlight Procession from Parliament Square to Calton Hill Son et Lumiere featuring a final show of fireworks. The Street Party and the Concert in the Garden are also between the main attractions of the line-up. The feast is that popular that you should ensure your accommodation in advance at any Edinburgh city centre hotel, or at one of the Hotels in Ballater if you are willing to travel a little further.

After these party days in the capital, travel to Glasgow to attend Celtic Connections, an incredible music festival that will be taking place from the end of January to the beginning of February. During 18 days, it will display more than 2000 artists and 300 events in 20 different venues, a really unique opportunity to see some of the biggest names in Gaelic, folk, indie, fusion, Americana, bluegrass, and jazz. The festival honours Celtic music and its relations with several cultures across the globe in a lively assembly of rhythms and musicians coming from five continents curated and programmed by Artistic Director Donald Shaw. If you want to pepper your stay with the best service, great food, and stylish ambiance, check out the good selection of luxury Glasgow hotels. If you are still looking for a place to celebrate New Years, there can not be a greater proposal. This is the perfect time to visit Scotland.
