Escape this Christmas to the Scottish Riviera, and cherish a little time away with like-minded people. On this festive getaway we include a full Christmas package with nightly entertainment, exclusive spa access at the hotel and free time in Carlisle, Lancaster and Ayr.


Day 1 – Our journey this morning will take us to the Cairndale Hotel & Spa in Dumfries.

Day 2 – This morning our experienced driver will take you on a scenic drive through Galloway Forest Park – so, sit back, relax and enjoy the simply stunning views of Britain’s largest forest park. Our journey will end in Ayr, a charming seaside resort in South Ayrshire where you can enjoy a little free time.

Day 3 – Spend Christmas Day in the warmth and comfort of the hotel amongst new friends. After a leisurely breakfast perhaps take some time out to relax and enjoy the hotel’s leisure facilities, which include; a heated indoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi and sauna. Later a traditional Christmas lunch is served before a delicious buffet dinner followed by an evening of entertainment.

Day 4 – After breakfast we visit Carlisle, precariously perched on the frontier between England and Scotland it’s bursting with history and heritage just waiting to be unwrapped. This afternoon we have included a ticket to the local pantomime (Oh yes we have!)

Day 5 – After a ‘guid Yule’ (or good Christmas to you and I) today we return home.
