Edinburgh always put on lovely stuff - there is often a nice theatre (puppet type) thing on at the Traverse I think.

Or the Bo'ness Santa train?

New Lanark has a Christmas programme

I'm from the coast so I love a walk on the beach in mid winter

There's just been an item on the news about a new attraction for Edinburgh's Christmas. There's going to be 16 arches of light going up the Royal Mile and there will be two shows per day where the lights are synchronized with music. Sounds like it could be really lovely.
