Birthday Celebrations

Looking for a venue to host a birthday party that no one will ever forget?  The Lovat could have exactly what you need.

Our breathtaking Loch Ness setting and picturesque Victorian building offers a fantastic location for a birthday party in the Scottish Highlands.  Whether you’re turning 18 or 80, you can rest assured that we’ll pull out all the stops to make sure your party is a special one.

Contact a member of our event-planning team on 01456 490000 to enquire about hosting your birthday party at The Lovat.

Past birthday events held at The Lovat include:

70’s themed 40th Birthday party

The event included:

  • fancy dress
  • cocktails & canapés for guests on arrival
  • seated 4 course dinner in the Brasserie
  • 70s quiz
  • 70s disco

50th Birthday party

The event included:

  • chilled margaritas and strawberry bellinis for guests on arrival
  • Ceilidh dancing to get people moving
  • Italian solo singer to serenade before the meal
  • 2 course finger buffet in the Drawing Room
  • continued Ceilidh and some disco dancing until the wee hours

After the party, we held a private dinner for 15 guests in the log fire lit drawing room – filled with 300 helium balloons!

Here’s some feedback from the Birthday Girl herself:

“Many thanks for arranging such a fabulous 50th Birthday celebration for me.  Your help and advice and attention to detail was amazing – not only on the night but also for my post party dinner.  Everything went so smoothly, thank you to you and your staff.  The food was delicious for both the party and the dinner.  Several folk have said it was the best party they have ever been to – so high praise indeed…and of course the stunning setting and luscious Lovat were well commented on.  I have so many fantastic memories!”
