IF you want to bring in the bells in style this year then it is still not too late to en­joy a re­lax­ing Hog­manay break amid a glo­ri­ous Scot­tish coun­try­side set­ting.

If you’re quick, then the Cally Palace Ho­tel, si­t­u­ated in a beau­ti­ful 150acre es­tate on the out­skirts of Gatehouse of Fleet, still has lim­ited spa­ces avail­able for their fournight New Year Break.

The grandeur of the ho­tel is matched only by the warmth of the tra­di­tional Scot­tish wel­come.

Ar­riv­ing to a glass of mulled wine and a piece of short­bread, let the at­ten­tive staff take care of you for a few days of in­dul­gence, with fine wines, ex­quis­ite din­ing and the chance to meet new friends your only itin­er­ary to see out the year.

The din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence in par­tic­u­lar is sec­ondto-none. Us­ing sea­sonal pro­duce from Scot­land’s ex­ten­sive larder of meat, fish and game, the qual­ity of the food on of­fer is re­flected by the AA rosette which adorns the restau­rant.

Din­ner, bed and break­fast is in­cluded each day, as well as two light lunches, a Hog­manay ban­quet and din­ner dance as well as a Bucks Fizz break­fast on New Year’s Day to blow away the cob­webs from the night be­fore, and a fancy dress din­ner dance that night.

Ex­tra touches such as a pre-din­ner cham­pagne re­cep­tion, a piper to bring in the bells, puz­zles quizzes and com­pe­ti­tions or even a round of golf on the ho­tel’s own 18-hole course (con­di­tions per­mit­ting of course, it is De­cem­ber in Scot­land af­ter all) are all in­cluded in the price.

A Clas­sic Room will set you back just £651 per per­son, with spe­cial rates for the For­est Wing rooms, For­est Wing Bal­cony rooms just and Deluxe Rooms or Suites comes also avail­able.

All rates are based upon two guests shar­ing, and fur­ther de­tails can be found by con­tact­ing the ho­tel’s friendly staff on 01557 814341 or by vis­it­ing the ho­tel web­site.

SCOT THE LOT: The grandeur of the set­ting is matched by the warmth of the wel­come at the Cally Palace Ho­tel.
