Welcome in the New Year in Dornoch!
Join the crowd for the Hogmanay Street Party in the Square. The evening starts off with the 3 Musicteers playing under the arches from 10:00-10:20 followed by the mini pipe band march from Dornoch Stores at 10:20 -10:30 when the Red Reel Ceilidh Band take over and the dancing starts! Mackays will be cooking up a storm with their Dornoch Farm Butcher burgers and Cocoa Mountain will keep you warm with hot chocolate. Or if gin is your tipple, check out the pop-up bar in the Castle Hotel garden.
At midnight Magnus Orr will pipe in the New Year from the Castle battlements and then there will be a superb Firework display to light up the night sky. Then it is time for Auld Lang Syne before the dancing resumes until 1:30am.
