Spend Hogmanay with us, here at Knock Castle!
No one celebrates New Year quite like us Scots and so if you are thinking of a New Year break this year, look no further than the delights of Perthshire, and the luxury of Knock Castle.
Known as Hogmanay in Scotland, which describes the last day of the year, it is a word the Scots use but actually no one is sure from whose language the word comes from, possibly Gaelic or it could be from Norman-French. No one knows but either way, it is a word used to describe the festival that was traditionally celebrated in Scotland, as opposed to Christmas.
It is a time where family and friends come together, party and exchange gifts and, at the stroke of midnight sing ‘Auld Lang Syne’, bringing many a tear to many an eye as we remember the year past and look forward to the year coming. This song is recognised as one of the most sung across the globe, with most people recognising the iconic tune and the majority of the words!
But perhaps the thing that sets New Year breaks in Perthshire and Scotland as a whole, from time spent anywhere else at this time of year is the foundation of Hogmanay – that of welcoming friends, family and strangers alike. The warmth of hospitality runs deep, the welcome like no other as we let the remnants of the old year go, making a clean break and welcoming the new year ahead. Sadness leaves, replaced by happiness.
