Members can now enjoy the fabled beauty of Scotland at Karma Lake of Menteith in the stunning Perthshire countryside whose opening coincides with one of the most important dates on the Scottish calendar…
Burns Night falls on January 25th during Karma Lake of Menteith’s opening week. It celebrates legendary Scottish poet Robert Burns, who was born in 1759 and was a pioneer of the Romantic movement as well as writing arguably the greatest poems and lyrics of the age – particularly in the Scottish dialect, including the evergreen classic, Auld Lang Syne sung all over the world at New Year.
After his passing, Burn’s friends resolved to hold an annual supper to commemorate the great man. And that tradition has endured for well over 200 years. As such, our very first guests at the resort will get to experience a traditional Burns Supper.
Traditionally, the night begins with the host reciting the Selkirk Grace (A Scottish prayer), followed by a meal of haggis (a delicious blend of sheep’s pluck mixed with onion, oatmeal, suet and spices) paired with the Address to a Haggis poem. Later in the evening further recitals and speeches are performed, including Immortal Memory, Address to the Lassies and Reply to the Laddies. To end the night everyone stands and of course, sings Auld Lang Syne.
Burns Night this year falls on Karma Lake of Menteith’s fourth night and you can be sure there’ll be suitable celebrations for the great bard – an experience not to be missed.
