Burns Night Supper

Why not celebrate Rabbie Burns with a Burns Night Supper at Winton Castle?

We can craft a special, bespoke Burns Supper for 15 to 130 guests to entertain your clients and colleagues.

Born on 25 January 1759 in Alloway in Ayrshire, Rabbie Burns is Scotland’s best known bard and celebrated all over the world. In his short life, Burns dedicated hundreds of lines of verse to the fairer sex and went on to father 12 children.

Burns Night is traditionally on the 25th of January, but we’d be happy to craft your Burns Night Dinner on a date to suit.

Our events team can plan every detail of your evening’s entertainment, which could include:

  • Drinks and canapes reception or tasting with Prosecco, wine, beer or whisky.
  • The haggis piped in and addressed.
  • The Selkirk grace recited by Sir Francis Ogilvy (if available).
  • A delicious modern take on a three course Burns supper, made with local Scottish ingredients by our talented chef.

If desired, we can lay on Rabbie Burns poems and songs, and traditional speeches, the Immortal Memory, and addresses to the Lads, Lassies and Toun.

Winton Ceilidhs are always very popular, so we’d be delighted to arrange a three piece Ceilidh band with dancing in our ballroom.

Afterwards, relax in front the fire in the Library or Drawing Room and solve the world’s problems over a fine malt whisky from Glenkinchie, Speyside or the Islands.

Return buses can be laid on from Edinburgh to Winton, or you could consider staying overnight in the castle or our luxury country houses.
