A brilliant weekend
We recently had a work event at Kippilaw and it was a fabulous choice. The hospitality was fantastic and Lil pulled out all the stops so that the whole team had the best stay. Such a great venue for corporate events. Will definitely use again

Beautiful wedding venue, couldn’t recommend more
I was a guest recently at Kippilaw House in Scotland for a wedding and it was an unforgettable experience. The rooms were stunning and comfortable, with thoughtful details that made our stay exceptional. The staff's attentive and warm hospitality exceeded expectations, adding a personal touch to the entire visit. The wedding itself was wonderful, flawlessly organised with one of the highlights being the exquisite food that was served, high end restaurant quality food. Kippilaw House goes beyond being an amazing venue; the historic mansion has so many great qualities, even the wedding ceremony took place underneath a beautifully decorated large ancient tree next to the house. I highly recommend it for those seeking a truly special and memorable experience.

A great venue for all!
I was recently a guest at Kippilaw and as a very typical male I was blown away. Finally - a wedding with decent ale on tap, in a beautiful house with lots of fun activities. This was no typical wedding and I thoroughly enjoyed my day and the food was exceptional, with great portion sizes. Highly recommend for something a little more special.

A wonderful wedding
We went to the most wonderful wedding and it made me wish we could get married again - here! The owners and staff made us feel so welcome and couldn’t do enough for us - the food was delicious and I am gluten free and they made me an alternative dish without gluten , even the canapés which were outstanding. First class in every way but relaxed and friendly too - amazing!

Relaxed and fun, just how we wanted it!
We had an intimate wedding ceremony at Kippilaw and the house is so beautiful we decided not to decorate at all! Our closest friends stood around us as we said our vows under the ancient beech tree which was really magical. We can't recommend Kippilaw enough. Thank you 😊
