4 Days Away

A splendid four day break to celebrate the arrival of the New Year combining the senic delights of Peterhead and and a night of spectical and wonder as the midnight bells ring out on December 31st. 

The fireball festival takes place on Hogmanay, the 31st of December. Moments before the old Town House bell chimes midnight, welcoming in January 1st, the music of a small pipe band is heard. Fireballs are lit and swingers emerge from the street leading to the harbour, helping to speed the Old Year on its way and to herald in the New in ancient style with a highly dexterous performance.

The Fireballs start at midnight but the Street Entertainment starts at 11.00pm, The street entertainment is usually a Pipe Band and street drummers. At the end of the ceremony (usually around 00.25) fireworks get set off from the road above the harbour to the south, well worth waiting for - these can be seen from all around the town - you don't need to be at the harbour - just look south

Aberdeen is rich in history from its maritime past. It's where the harbour meets the city centre and is famous for its stunning architecture and ancient charm. It’s also known as the ‘Granite City’ and is surrounded by the beautiful countryside of Aberdeenshire, with its forests, mountains and attractive coastline.
