Scotland is one of the most popular Christmas destinations in UK.

Accommodation offering Christmas breaks

The Scottish Highlands are known for being one of the last great wildernesses, and for having some of the highest mountains in Britain, attracting people in large numbers for the many outdoor activities from skiing and snowboarding in winter to munro bagging in the summer and spring months. 

There are traditions influenced by carols sung, Santa Claus from Scandinavia, his arrival from chimney to fill stockings is originally a tradition of Netherlands, his sleigh pulled by reindeer began in Switzerland and the tradition of Christmas Trees is from Germany, Christians have celebrated Christmas Day since 336AD and the earliest known Christmas Day celebrations were in York, England in AD 521 by King Arthur, today all these tradition have been put together to make Christmas,  let us take care of you this Christmas, wrap you in luxury and spoil you with festive fun.

The shops in the Highlands elaborately decorate their establishments enchanting the traveller at this festive time of year to shop and relax in the coffee shops and have great food served in the restaurants. there are many types of accommodation to be found in the Highlands for a romantic Christmas with that special someone, or the big get together with family and freind's.

Enjoy a festive accommodation in a stately home, castles, a country House, lob cabin or Hotel, enjoy Christmas Shopping in Inverness with Christmas Fayre on sale with Scottish crafts, food and drink, it is the occasion for an annual family reunion that creates a special atmosphere of generosity and good cheer known as the "Christmas Spirit" throughout the Highlands, there are good times to be had by all this festive season, so get ready for Christmas in the Highlands, some of the most beautiful areas encompassing this region west of the Cairngorms National Park that includes Loch Ness and the Great Glen, as well as the many wonderful glens in that area such as Glen Affric, Strathfarrar and Glen Cannich, there walks in the snow along some of Scotland's most wild and beautiful glens of ancient Caledonian pine forests that once covered much of the Highlands, look out for the stags and hinds who come down to the lower pasture looking for food. 

The Scots word "Yule" comes from the Old Norse "jól, which was the pagan celebration of the winter solstice, traditionally 'Yultid' referred to the twelve days between December 25th and January 6th, it is thought the Vikings brought the celebration of Yuletide to Scotland, in any event the mid-winter festival blended with the Celtic Festival of Samhain.

In Pagan tradition emphasis was placed on light and heat the Yule log was a Norse custom and burning of the Yule was a celebration of the sun during the winter months, most ancient superstitions surrounding Yuletide were concerned with the darkness and the evil, it was thought to harbour, many superstitious people keep a piece on the log from the previous year, as a lucky talisman.

According to tradition it was extremely unlucky for a barefooted woman or a squint eyed man to see the yule log and a flat footed visitor to the house whilst the log was burning was a very bad omen, keeping Christmas cake or the remains of the Yule Log under the bed was also thought to help get rid of chilblains, the log has subsequently influenced other Christmas traditions including desserts such as log shaped cakes.
