On the evening guests will be welcomed by delightful little performances from a talented tip-top bagpiper, before they are all invited to ‘toast the haggis’ with a glass of Glenmorangie’s finest and enjoy some delicious haggis canapes. The evening will then continue with a poetry recital containing a selection of Robert Burns’ best works.
In true Scottish spirit all household staff shall be temporarily swapping their traditional military uniforms for a range of rather fetching kilts. Equally, Mr Fogg’s male guests shall also be encouraged to sport sporrans and Kilts too.
