From festive dinner menus to cracking Christmas cocktails, businesses in the Highlands are gearing up to provide an amazing Yuletide offering.
Whether you’re heading out to meet a friend for Christmas lunch or you’re catching up with a colleague over festive drinks, there’s so much to be enjoyed this period, with businesses across the Highlands set to bring lashings of festive cheer to the region.
Sitting in Tier 1, customers can enjoy longer opening hours dining until 10.30pm and grab a drink in any of their local establishments which are open without having to order a meal at the same time.
And although Christmas may be a little different for many this year, restaurants, bars and businesses across the area are determined to make the most of the celebrations, launching festive food and drink menus, not to mention specials and limited edition bakes.
Here, we uncover some of those firms offering up something rather special this Christmas…
