Twinkling Lights at Airhouses

Spirit of Christmas at Airhouses

With twinkling lights throwing a festive glow into the room and a distinctive aroma, which takes you back to your childhood, Christmas trees are an important aspect of our festive celebrations.  From late November  all at Airhouses will be getting into the spirit with  each lodge being decorated with it’s own Christmas tree, fairy lights and Christmas wreaths.  

Time to Treat Yourself

Whether you are looking for a quite and relaxing weekend away before the mad rush;  would like to do some pre Christmas shopping; or perhaps celebrate Christmas a little early with friends, family or work colleagues,  then Airhouses is for you.  

What’s on in Edinburgh

Edinburgh’s Christmas celebrations are now world famous and it’s easy to see why.

From the mid November through to early January,   Princes Street and the gardens are transformed into a magical, festive fairground for all ages.  The street becomes home to a traditional German market where you can wander around the beautifully illuminated wooden cabins and browse at the traditional and unusual produce.  When there is a chill in the air, why not try some of the Glehewen (Mulled Wine) to warm you up!

The fairground offers something for the children – young and old.  The focal points include a fantastic ice skating rink and a beautiful Ferris Wheel, which offers the brave amongst you wonderful views of the city at its festive best.

There are several options to enjoy a trip to the theatre (Oh no there isn’t – Oh yes there is!!) from the traditional pantomimes to ballets and musicals.

The list doesn’t end there, with great shopping, a huge variety of bars and restaurants and a great events calendar over the festive period; you’ll be glad that Airhouses  is within an easy drive of Scotland’s capital.

What’s on in the Scottish Borders

Closer to home, in the Scottish Borders,the temperature may be dropping but there is no shortage of events and activities on offer.  If you are looking for something different to buy for presents, or for yourself,  then there are lots of quirky shops, farmers markets, galleries in the various market towns throughout the Borders.
