Christmas Breaks

Festive time away in Ballater, Royal Deeside

Make fond memories at the Deeside Inn

Our magical Christmas break, arriving either 24th or 25th December (2 night stay only), includes full Scottish breakfast eachmorning, plenty of food, friendly company and lots of added extras.

24th December
Tea and mince pies will be served upon arrival to reinvigorate you after your journey.

A three course supper will be served in the dining room, then an after dinner coffee can be enjoyed by the fire in the lounge. A light hearted quiz will be run, to help guests become aquainted with each other before Christmas Day.

For those wishing to head to Midnight Mass at neighbouring Glenmuick Church, hot chocolate, hot toddies and mince pies will be offered upon your return.


25th December
Christmas morning kicks off with a hearty breakfast, or a big welcome to all those joining us today - Merry Christmas! 

Towards midday, a Champagne reception will be served in the lounge before a traditional Christmas lunch in the dining room.

After lunch, Christmas cake, tea and coffee will be available in the lounge - if you've got space! The Queen’s speech will also be shown, for those for whom this is a festive tradition.

Later in the evening we will serve a light, informal buffet supper in the lounge, after which there is plenty of time to relax with a glass of your favourite festive tipple.


26th December
Welcome to the restaurant for a full Scottish breakfast, to revive you after all the fun of yesterday!

To those leaving today, we wish you a safe journey. For those staying with us, spend the afternoon relaxing, before joining us for dinner followed by a drink by the fire.

After a hearty full Scottish breakfast, we wish you a fond farewell...!
