To reserve your accommodation please telephone the Annandale Arms Hotel on 01683-220013 or Email reception@annandalearmshotel.co.uk

This is very special time in Scotland generally and in Moffat specifically. As the Annandale is right in the centre of town you will be at the heart of the New Year festivities. You are invited to welcome in the “bells”, in the company of the people of Moffat. Just for guidance, as the Annandale does not like to impose rules on its guest, generally the dress code is smart casual but on New Year most guests tend to go for smart.

New Years Eve begins gently with an excellent dinner in our restaurant. As the meal draws to a close people start to gather in anticipation of the “bells” at midnight.

As the alotted hour approaches crowds gather in front of the hotel and the New Year is signaled by St Andrews Kirk clock and greeted to the sound of the pipers competing with the thunder of fireworks all followed by a jolly ditty written by a local boy……..” For old acquaintance…”

For some this is time for first footing for others sleep beckons it is very much your choice.
