Carfraemill is a venue, restaurant and hotel just north of Lauder and where the Scottish Borders meet the Lothians. It is just 40 minutes south of Edinburgh, and close to many Scottish Border towns including Melrose, Kelso, Galashiels, St Boswells, Duns, Lauder, Stow, Tweedbank and Greenlaw.

What To Wear

As it's Hogmanay (New Year's Eve), we find that most of our guests dress up either in kilts or evening wear. It's not a black tie affair for most people, but feel free to come in black tie if you wish! The most important thing is to wear shoes that you're happy to dance lots of reels and jigs in.


  • Canapes and glass of prosecco on arrival (7pm for 7.30pm)
  • Celebration carvery - beautiful local roasts and casseroles (see the menu for details)
  • Dessert table - irresistible puddings to choose from (or have a taste of every one!)
  • Reels and jigs with the Iain Lowthian Ceilidh Band (steps will be "called" before and during dances)
  • Auld Lang Syne at midnight
  • More reels and jigs until 1am
