Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
Our own wedding! Very romantic with a completely unique family castle as a backdrop. It made us realise that others may like to share their wedding vows here so we began extensive refurbishment of the ballroom in 2020 to make your day a truly 5 star experience. We have at last finished meaning that unlike most venues we have good availability throughout the whole of 2022 (including Saturdays).

The options go on and on!
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
So far we have just had family wedding here... but a member of the Royal Family was one of the first into the restored ballroom!
What is your venue's most unique feature?
The castle itself - with the endless photo opportunities in the extensive surrounding grounds
What part of your business are you most proud of?
I think probably the way we have mixed the old with the new... Whilst the castle is from the 15th century and the gothic courtyard has some of the first ever bricks used in Scotland, we have installed the very latest LED lighting technology in the ballroom and the ladies' loo takes luxury to a new level!
