Scottish Winter Holidays

As winter approaches and the leaves turn and temperatures cool, many families holiday planning goes into full swing. Excitement builds for cosy evenings around fires, twinkling lights on every building, and the soothing sounds of Christmas classics in every home. When you forego all the planning and let Sleigh’s deliver a wonderful stress-free Christmas for you and your loved ones, you’ll find every last detail has been carefully arranged so you can sit back and enjoy the very best parts of this festive season. With our expert knowledge and local contacts, we can arrange the holiday that suits you best.

Exclusive Use Christmas Castles

Enjoy exclusive castle stay packages for you and your entire family to really be able to relax and enjoy each other’s company. You’ll have everything you desire, from warming fires in cosy rooms where you’ll sit around and chat, to exciting Christmas activities for adults and children alike. Enjoy a visit from Santa’s reindeer in the day, and dine like royalty in the evening, enjoying a feast prepared by  chefs who have cooked for the Royal family in your own castle.

Castle Hotel Festive Packages

Discover real luxury in one of Scotland’s best palatial  hotels as you experience all they have planned for this season. Enjoy falconry displays, ice staking, horse and carriage rides, and sheepdog trials during the day, and atmospheric evenings with stargazing, bagpipes, the finest foods and a wonderful Scottish Ceilidh band who’ll get everyone dancing to celebrate this magical time in true Scottish style. Join the local community in their celebration by joining them at the local church for service, or spend the time appreciating the loved ones around you.

Christmas by the Coast

If you’d like to combine the cosiness of fireside meals with the chance to explore some of Scotland’s most stunning coastline, we have the perfect location for you. Wrap up in your warmest woollen jumper to head out for a traditional, blustery coastal walk before warming up with warm mince pies and mulled wine in beautifully decorated lounges. From the farthest corners of the Scottish Islands to the stunning beaches just thirty minutes from the capital, winter on the Scottish coast offers its own type of magic. From champagne receptions and candlelit dinners to the chance to relax by a fire with a good book, this holiday you’ll encounter the perfect combination of exciting celebration, cosy relaxation and stunning coastal scenery.

City Stay

There is something absolutely magical about the holidays in the city – festive lights strung up across every street, giant oversized Christmas trees in shops and squares, and the sounds of laughter as people sip on hot cocoa and mulled wine. You can explore the winter markets set up in the public gardens, and enjoy an opulent Afternoon Tea, carefully redone with a seasonal menu.  In Edinburgh, the kilts will be out in full force on Hogmanay as people ring in the New Year with champagne and a traditional Ceilidh.
