Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
At Achnagairn, our motto is 'Escape the Ordinary', and our whole approach is around tailoring your wedding to you, exactly as you want it! All our weddings are spread over 2+ days, to give you time to properly drink it all in and enjoy the experience, surrounded by your friends and family.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Stay organised! We can't recommend lists and sheets quite enough!
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
Every one of our bedrooms at Achnagairn has its own name and theme - one of the most fun parts of planning a wedding with us is choosing who should go where! Have an aunt who loves things that are more traditional? Victoriana is for her! Bridesmaids who will love an amazing whirlpool bath? Carpe Diem is for them!
Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.
Unique, romantic, grand, quirky, and completely breathtaking (oops, maybe that's more than 5..!)
Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
A tough one! Either the ballroom itself for grand surrounds, or the beautiful landscaped gardens...
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
We couldn't possibly comment....
What’s your favourite canapé?
Well, since we are based in Scotland, we couldn't help choosing something featuring Venison or Salmon1
What’s your favourite midnight treat?
Our guests have always found a hearty but moorish Mac n cheese is the way to go!
What is your venue's most unique feature?
The Ballroom! The only one of its kind in the Highlands of Scotland, the ballroom was built in 1912 for the then owner's daughter's 21st birthday. Today, it is a magical place to tie the knot, or hold your wedding banquet!
What part of your business are you most proud of?
We love seeing the amazing comments left in our guest book after a wedding. They put a huge smile on our faces seeing everyone from the couple themselves, through to parents, friends and family saying that they just could not have imagined a better venue!
