Perfect Pre-Christmas breaks

The festive season is a time of joy, celebration, and excitement. But it can also be a whirlwind. There’s so much to do: shopping, cooking, and preparation. Sometimes it can feel hard to stop and enjoy the festivities around us. The best antidote to the hustle and bustle of the pre-Christmas preparations? Cheeky pre-Christmas relaxation breaks. Take some time for yourself. Relax, unwind. And come back ready to really experience Christmas with your loved ones, not just prepare for it.

Aaaaand relax!

If you need a real pre-Christmas break, take a trip up to Caithness in Scotland. Here, you’ll find Mackay’s Hotel, nestled in a tranquil spot and waiting to welcome you. Once you’re here, you can enjoy all the best bits of a pre-Christmas break and really allow yourself to relax.

Comfort first

One of the reasons that Mackay’s makes the perfect pre-Christmas break spot is how much effort we put into making our rooms the absolute best. We offer a range of beautifully decorated rooms and suites. Each is designed to provide our guests with the ultimate warm and inviting atmosphere. Or you could take some time out in one of our holiday homes. Choose from an apartment, a townhouse or a large holiday home – perfect for when you need a bit more space than a hotel room.

Whether you opt for a hotel room or one of our holiday homes, you’ll be met with soft, fresh linen, comfortable beds, plenty of space, and brilliant en suites. And all the necessary amenities like a TV and WiFi.

We know the importance of comfort above all else. Without a comfortable room, you’re not going to be able to relax and recuperate in time for Christmas. So, our staff do all they can to ensure every room is perfectly cosy.

Explore Caithness

Mackay’s Hotel is right in the center of Caithness, making it the perfect hub for exploring all of the local attractions and culture that there is on offer. You can visit the historic Wick Heritage Museum, home to a treasure trove of artifacts that tell the story of the town and its locals. When you’re done there, why not take a trip to The Castle of Mey, the late residence of the Queen Mother?

Take in the scenery

Scotland is known for its scenery, and Caithness is no exception. Positioned along the North Coast 500 route, Wick is a great place to stay. Especially if you’re a lover of all things nature. Using Mackay’s Hotel as a hub, adventure out into the great Scottish scenery on hikes, and picnics. You could even take a boat trip out on the sea to see what there is to see! Have a look at everything the local area has to offer.

Taking trips out in nature has been proven to help us relax and unwind. And it’s a great idea if you’re visiting Mackay’s for one of our pre-Christmas breaks. Take a day to adventure through the dramatic Scottish Highlands. And then fill up on warm bistro food and warm up with a lovely shower before snuggling into bed. You’ll feel rested and recuperated in no time at all.

As the holiday season approaches, the importance of taking a break and recharging can’t be overstated. Mackay’s Hotel is simply the perfect environment for those seeking a peaceful, relaxing escape. Especially before the whirlwind of Christmas takes over. With truly cosy hotel rooms and holiday homes, exquisite dining and serene surroundings, and unique local attractions, pre-Christmas breaks at Mackay’s Hotel are an opportunity to embrace the spirit of the season and set the stage for a joyful, stress-free holiday.
