A Campbeltown hotel offering a vegan option and traditional fare says its alternative Burns night would have attracted the bard himself.

Ardshiel Hotel’s event on Saturday January 26, the day after Burns Night, offers dinner including haggis, neeps and tatties before a music session from 8.30pm featuring Anne Leith, Les Oman, Angela Paterson and a piper.

Posters advertising the party say: ‘Celebrate like Burns, Robert Burns knew how to party and we aim to create a night he might have attended himself with music and whisky.’

The same evening, Whitehouse Village Hall committee hosts its Burns Night from 7pm.
