Shortlisted Venues ()

Burns night is celebrated annually in Scotland on or around the 25th January to commemorate the life of Robert Burns who was born on 25th January, 1759. The day celebrates his contribution to Scottish culture and his poetry. Now you and your guests can celebrate the life of Scotland’s National Bard aboard The Royal Yacht Britannia.

Britannia’s Scottish Evenings are held throughout January and February giving guests the opportunity to experience a traditional Scottish evening aboard The Royal Yacht.

Your evening will commence with a red carpet welcome. Guests are piped aboard via the Royal Brow, an entrance previously reserved for The Queen and the Royal Family. 

Sparkling wine and canapés will be served to guests during a reception in the State Drawing Room. Our pianist will entertain guests on Britannia’s original grand piano. The piano has been played by a number of famous people including Princess Margaret and Princess Diana.

Britannia’s Executive Chef will create a sumptous five-course Scottish menu, using only the finest ingredients and prepared in the original Royal Galley.

In true traditional Burns Supper style, a steaming haggis will be piped into the State Dining Room and followed by ‘Burns Address to a Haggis’ and then toasted with a wee dram of Scotch Whisky.

Throughout the evening, Britannia’s musician will entertain guests with the gentle tones of the Clarsach, a Scottish harp.
