by | Jan 4, 2024

Welcome to our blog! Today, we’re excited to share details about a unique and enriching cultural event that combines fine dining, Scottish heritage, and communal revelry. If you’re in Lake Norman, North Carolina, you won’t want to miss this annual celebration of Scottish culture and tradition. Mark your calendars for the evening of January 27th, 2024, as we gather for the Burns Night Dinner at Historic Rural Hill. Here’s what you can look forward to:

A Night of Scottish Delights

Imagine an evening where the air is filled with the soulful sound of Scottish piping, setting the mood for a night dedicated to the legacy of the Bard of Scotland, Robert Burns. Our Burns Night Dinner is not just a feast for the taste buds but a journey into the heart of Scottish tradition. As a tribute to Burns, the evening will include a series of toasts and speeches honoring his life and work. Dress in your best tartan and kilts to fully immerse yourself in this cultural experience!

Delectable Dining Experience

Catered by the renowned Savory Moments Catering, our three-course dinner promises to be a highlight of the evening. Begin with tantalizing Hors D’oeuvres, featuring a charcuterie selection that will whet your appetite. The first course offers a choice between the traditional Cock-a-leekie Soup and a Chef’s Vegetarian Specialty Soup. For the main course, select from succulent Beef Brisket, perfectly cooked Salmon, or a delightful Pasta Primavera, each accompanied by a medley of roasted root vegetables and smashed potatoes. And for dessert, indulge in a heavenly Dessert Parfait or a rich Chocolate Cake with Butterscotch pudding and Chocolate Mousse. Plus, enjoy a free pour of Scotch whisky for the toast!

Embracing the Spirit of Burns

Burns Nights are celebrated worldwide to honor the birthday of Poet Robert Burns, typically around January 25th. This tradition began in July 1801 when Burns’ friends met at his old home to commemorate the fifth anniversary of his passing. A traditional Burns Night includes haggis being piped in, a three-course meal, several drams of whisky, and performances honoring Burns’ great works.

Exclusive and Intimate Gathering

Remember, space for this premier event is limited, so securing your tickets in advance is crucial. The doors will open at 6 pm, with meals served around 6:45 pm. Throughout the evening, a silent auction will be held, and a cash bar offering beer, wine, and Scotch whisky will be available.
