Later you can relax over dinner in the Westward Restaurant and prepare for the festivities.

HOGMANAY – SUNDAY DECEMBER 31st
A lazy day in anticipation of a lively evening. In the morning there will be a boat trip aboard Sandy Campbell’s Redbay Stormforce Cabin RIB Venture West to the islands or the Gulf of Corryvreckan if the weather permits. This is an ideal way to blow away the old year in preparation for the New Year! Land lubbers can lie in and hold the fort. This boat trip is amazing fun and is included in your Hogmanay stay.

If you wish to explore there are wonderful and beautiful walks for all abilities and winter is a great time to see otters, deer and a great selection of birds. A short drive away is Kilmartin Glen with its ancient standing stones. Crinan lies in Dalriada which is the oldest Kingdom in Scotland and the Ancient Kings were crowned here. Riding can be arranged at Lunga or clay pigeon shooting at Brenfield.

Prior to dinner Mr and Mrs Ryan and their family will be hosting a Champagne reception in the Gallery Bar which is enclosed on the hotel roof.

Then you will be piped down to the Westward Restaurant by our favourite piper to enjoy a sumptuous Black Tie (or a Touch of Tartan) Dinner to the music of the Sax Folk, our jazz ceilidh band.

There will be Scottish reels as the evening progresses towards Ne’rday.
Dress Code: Black Tie or a Touch of Tartan.
The Crinan piper will bring in the Bells at midnight.
The hotel staff will pour you a glass of champagne as we bring in 2018 together.
The reeling and wheeling will carry on.
Then Haggis Neeps and Tatties will be served before you retire.

NEW YEAR’S DAY – MONDAY 1st JANUARY 2018

“A Happy New Year to One and All!”

There is no hurry, breakfast will be served until 10am
and lunch will also be served in the Seafood Bar from 12 noon.

At 5.30 p.m. there will be a showing of the original 1949 version of the film Whisky Galore in The General’s Bar (which has a selection of over 50 whiskies to help to get you in the mood).

Later, enjoy an evening of entertainment with amazing music and a traditional fiddle band.

Boat trips at Crinan on MV Sgarbh

Experience wonderful boat trips at Crinan on the MV Sgarbh on some of the finest cruising waters in the world, never mind just the west coast of Scotland.

MV SgarbhThe Sgarbh is a fully restored classic motor boat moored at Crinan right outside the hotel which overlooks the Crinan Canal, the gateway to the Atlantic and the islands.

The Sgarbh (gaelic for cormorant, the sea bird) was built in 1947 on the river Clyde in Glasgow as a herring fishing boat. She retired from fishing in 1953 and then was beautifully fitted out below for cruising.

She is built of teak, fully varnished and completely original, the last of her type. Weighing over 20 tons and at 40 foot long she is solid and safe.

Boat trips and more extensive charters can be tailored to suit your preferences with personalised itineraries. The boat is coded for up to 12 passengers during the day and 4 passengers for overnight charters. Fresh seafood and other local produce can be prepared by the hotel and served during your cruise.

Visit the Crinan Hotel website for more information and booking details – and perhaps take the opportunity to stay at the Crinan Hotel in May and June with our ever-popular early summer “three nights for the price of two” deal (applies to B&B rates on Sunday to Thursday nights only – limited availability).  You can book online here – Crinan Hotel bookings
