Scottish Wedding - brought to you by Scotland's National Tourism Organisation

National Trust for Scotland Venues

For centuries the National Trust for Scotland's properties have played host to magnificent banquets and dances for the rich and famous. Today these wonderful venues are open for all to enjoy and are available to you for private hire. With an inspiring collection of castles, stately homes and gardens, situated in both city centre and countryside locations, the Trust has a venue to accommodate any size or style of wedding.

Perched on a clifftop overlooking the Firth of Clyde and surrounded by exquisite gardens and acres of parkland, Culzean Castle, near Ayr, is a dramatic location for a fairytale wedding.

For a smaller and more personal wedding Drum Castle, near Banchory, is simply unique.  Amid an ancient oak forest on the edge of Royal Deeside, Drum combines medieval history, Jacobean romance and Victorian opulence to striking effect.

Haddo House, near Ellon, is one of the Trust's most welcoming stately homes, built with entertaining in mind!  With breathtaking views, exquisite formal gardens and crisp Georgian exteriors, the opportunities for stunning wedding photographs at Haddo are endless, at any time of year.

Accommodation is available at many of the Trust's venues.  The Laird's Apartment in the west wing of Brodie Castle offers spacious and luxurious accommodation, set over three floors, for up to 14 guests.  Similarly, the Preston Tower Apartment at Fyvie Castle is set over four floors and can sleep up to 13 guests.  Both of these 'Connoisseur Collection' apartments are furnished to a very high standard and include a large lounge, grand dining room and a fully equipped kitchen, offering ideal accommodation for the wedding party.

By choosing a National Trust for Scotland venue you will also be helping Scotland's largest conservation charity protect the nation's natural and cultural heritage for present and future generations to enjoy.
