Let The Festivities Commence!

This season we invite you to join us for dinner, drinks, dancing and just about anything else that will leave you brimming with festive cheer. Here at Ghillie Dhu, we have built an excellent reputation for hosting special events and what could be more special than gathering your nearest and dearest for a fantastical festive feast.

Here, you will find all the details on our specially created Christmas menus. You will also find lots of information on our jam packed roster of winter events, including lunch with Santa, live music, and of course our signature Hogmanay celebrations.

All that is left for us to do is wish you glad tidings when the season comes around, and we do hope to welcome all of you and yours for an unforgettable celebration.
