Full Description
The hotel has 10 elegant bedrooms, which have all been recently modernised and upgraded. We also have a further 8 modern and comfortable double/twin and family rooms in our steading next to the hotel. If you fancy a little bit more luxury we have 9 lodges, each with their own private hot tub which sleep anything from 2 in our Hideaway lodges up to 12 in our interconnecting Kirkton and Cadam lodges. We also have three elegant houses within our grounds - a 2 bed, a 3 bed and a 5 bed. Our steading rooms and most of our lodges and houses are dog friendly. In total we can accommodate up to 94 guests. Next to our hotel, a mere 100m away is the beautiful non-denominational Clova Kirk (Scottish church) which you can choose to get married in, alternatively you can get married in the surrounding hills. We have a beautiful function room for your choice of wedding meal and our staff will look after you well as you dance into the night celebrating with family and friends. Situated in the heart of the Angus Glens, yet only approx 1.5 hours from Edinburgh, choosing Glen Clova for your wedding will give you a truly authentic Scottish wedding. As well as offering a fantastic location we can also provide you with details of local wedding specialists - cakes, flowers, photographers, hair & make up, etc... so that your day is exactly how you dreamt it would be. Our wedding co-ordinator would be delighted to meet you.

Perfect day from start to finish!
We had an amazing wedding day at the Glen Clova Hotel. From the outset the staff were warm, friendly, and professional, and we never doubted that our day was in very safe hands. The food was superb, with generous portion sizes and dietary requirements expertly catered for. The hotel is situated in a very picturesque setting, which made an incredible back-drop for our wedding photos. We would highly recommend the venue to any future couples!

Perfect day
My husband and I have a real soft spot for the beautiful Glen Clova so when we heard the hotel were doing weddings we just had to get married there, in the heart of the Glen. Our day was amazing thanks to Mhairi and her team at the hotel who were all so lovely and organised. The day went smoothly apart from a small electrical glitch in the evening thanks to the dj’s equipment but this certainly didn’t dampen the spirits. Overall the day was even better than we could have imagined, just perfect!

Of the highest standard.
I was here for the Weekend at a wedding. Last week. I'm disabled and in a wheelchair, my room was fab, plenty room to move about, I was in the Steading rooms, Brandy suite. A Disabled room. The staff were lovely very helpful and always willing to help. The meals were first Class and the Breakfast was better than some four star places I have been in. Our Weekend of Celebrations were of the highest standard anyone could ask. My only let down, was getting ng from my room to the main hotel, the small peebles of the carpark, were very difficult to move on. Which was more than a challenge and very confident in my chair. So others would find its impossible. A path from the room to the entrance, would make it perfect. But don't let that put you off. Small sacrifice to make for a perfect weekend. The view was stunning everywhere. Highly recommend.

FAQ
(10)

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

This is a tricky one as there are so many, we just love the versatility and the creativity that comes from our wedding couples. So whether that's Alpacas joining you for a photo opportunity, having our staff dress up as jockeys for a Grand National day wedding, having a vintage themed wedding with china cups and Pimms, having a Harry Potter themed wedding or having the Red Hot Chili Pipers play for the evening, there's always a great moment at every wedding.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Remember its the pair of you getting married, so make sure that whatever you organise its for you guys.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

There are so many, the tear-jerking speeches, the special gifts, the intimate moments shared, we just love them all. My personal favourite though is when the dads make their speeches and they just well up at how amazing their daughter is, guaranteed to get our eyes watering too!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Beautiful Dog-friendly Rustic Scottish Idyllic

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

We have our own Loch - Loch Heath which is a stunning setting. Standing on the pontoons, looking out over the water with the trees reflected in it is truly magical. For the more adventurous you could walk to Corrie Fee or Loch Brandy where the scenery is breathtaking.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

That would be telling :) We value our couples privacy so don't announce any celebrities

What’s your favourite canapé?

Haggis bon-bons without a doubt

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

My favourite has got to be traditional Scottish stovies which is a traditional evening delicacy

What is your venue's most unique feature?

That we are dog-friendly and your dog can join in with all aspects of your wedding! We love dogs at Glen Clova. If you want your pooch to join you at your top table that's fine, we'll make sure that him or her enjoys a lovely bowl of food too!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

The staff and how everyone pulls together on a wedding day. We're not a huge place but many of us have been here for years so know each others ways really well which makes for a really smooth day for our wedding couples.
