We are delighted to see the return of the Hogmanay Street Party here in Dornoch. For years people have flocked from all over to experience a true, Scottish Hogmanay in Dornoch and we can’t wait to bring you that again!
A brief outline of the celebrations is below but will be updated when the full programme of events is available:
10pm – The Pipe Band kick off the evening
10:30pm – 11:55pm – Live Music in the Square
11:55pm – The Lone Piper on the battlements of the Dornoch Castle brings in the New Year!
Midnight – The Fireworks!
Midnight – 1:30am – Live music in the Square (and dancing!) resumes!
Whilst at the Street Party enjoy a tipple with the pop-up gin bar, keep the cold Scottish air at bay with some great food and remember to belt out the words to Auld Lang Syne just after midnight!
Hogmanay in Dornoch isn’t just centred around our Street Party; throughout the weekend, we will have events at Dornoch Cathedral, Hogmanay dinners, first footing breakfasts, the return of the Loony Dook, New Year’s lunch, whisky tasting and much more.
The Annual Loony Dook will be held on 1st January 2023 at 10:45 am for an 11:00 am swim to suit the tide times. As always, East Sutherland Rescue Association (ESRA) will provide safety cover in the water. There will be warm refreshments; donations to charity (card or cash).
The water and climate in January is very cold, so enter the water at your own risk. No unaccompanied children under 16 years.
