We would highly recommend The Scotsman to anyone!
Now that everything has settled down, Nathan and I would just like to pass on a massive thank you to you, Jamie and rest of the team. We can’t get over how attentive and amazing you were from start to finish! Our day couldn’t have gone any smoother and there’s nothing we would have changed about it! Our families and guests were also so complimentary to the venue and staff. We can’t wait to celebrate our anniversary every year from now with a nice meal at the Grand cafe!!

Thank you so much for your part in making sure our wedding celebration went off without a hitch. Certainly, from our point of view, everything went smoothly. We had no concerns about the order of things, the meal, the evening, the rooms, nothing. Thank you for the room upgrade as well, it really tied a bow on the whole day for us!
