Residents sampled Haggis, followed by delicious Scottish salmon with needs and tatties. The meal was washed down with a wee dram or two with plenty of ‘och aye the noo’. Traditional Raspberry Cranachan followed with whiskey and cream.
The history of Robbie Burns, the famous Scottish poet from the 18th century was read out along with poems and a film showing the "Address to the Haggis" and its history.
A Scottish quiz was followed by popular ceilidh dance music and, of course, the traditional bagpipe tunes. Robbie was also a songwriter and composed ‘Auld Lang Syne’ which was sung with gusto.
A spokesman for the Manor House said: "A great time was had by all even with the social distancing and the team wearing PPE. The flags, bunting, tartan sashes and 'Tam o Shanter' added to the atmosphere."
