Can anyone recommend any nice places to get married in Scotland?
Not for a massive wedding thinking around 40 guests. I feel like I'm hitting a brick wall trying to pick somewhere. All the hotels locally have been done to death and I want something a bit different. Stay in central Scotland but happy to travel! (As are our guests) thanks!

Check out Fingask castle. They have different spaces for smaller or larger parties. You get exclusive use and all your guests could stay in cottages onsite while you have the bridal suite. The castle sits in the most beautiful valley, half way between Perth and Dundee.

I paid £3000 (2016) to hire the site. Fingask run the bar and you choose a caterer on their list (which has companies for all tastes and budgets).

What’s about a DIY site like Duntarvie castle or Comrie croft?

If your happy to venture a wee bit out of Scotland Newton hall in Northumberland is stunning. We often go for the hotel nights and I always tell dh I need to get married again!

I went to a wedding last year in Dundee here

It was lovely.

I was at a fantastic wedding at Errol Park last year, and there’s loads of accommodation there and nearby

Boswell's Estate down in Ayrshire. It's absolutely lovely!

Cromlix - it has its own chapel and is lovely

Near kincardine. Used to be a sort of cafe/farm shop, now changed to wedding venue.

Do Historic Scotland still hire out castles? We had our reception at one but it was many years ago.

I love Springkell. It’s south Scotland- nearly Carlisle but it’s just off the M74 really easy to get too. The service from the family that own the house is exceptional

This place is near Dumfries comlongon.

AudacityOfHope Tue 07-May-19 20:28:03

Any of the posh St Andrews hotels - Fairmont, Old Course, etc.

FanSpamTastic Tue 07-May-19 20:29:06

Omg - not that place - looks like it has ceased to trade! I just copied the link!

Have a look at Cromlix. It's ideal for smaller weddings and the food, service, venue and grounds are all amazing.

TerribleTwosPhase Tue 07-May-19 20:33:56

These are all fab and I don't think there's any of them I've actually really looked at yet! Thank you all, going to have a nosey at them all now smile

Would you go up to Aberdeenshire?

combatbarbie Tue 07-May-19 20:39:37

I got married on Incholm Island, hired the ferry and had the island to ourselves for 2hours. We were allowed to take drinks reception with us etc. It was beautiful

Cornhill castle in biggar.
Stunning location and the bridal suite is amazing.

TerribleTwosPhase Tue 07-May-19 20:50:58

Some of these places are totally stunning! Yes @mrsawhite would travel to Aberdeenshire

Winton Castle. It has lots of history attached to it, I'm not sure if a website would do it full justice. I went to view it for a conference venue and was blown away by how lovely it was.

Banchory Lodge in Aberdeenshire!
