The prestigious magazine Harper’s Bazaar has just released its list of the Best UK Wedding Venues, and there are some very big names on it – Skibo Castle, the Gherkin, the Victoria and Albert Museum… But guess who’s up at number one? Us! Achnagairn Castle and its magnificent ballroom has topped the list for 2015!
As you can well imagine, we are all so proud. When our owners bought the castle back in 2009, it was a shell of a place, with only two functioning bedrooms and bathrooms, and today Achnagairn Castle is glittering and full of life!
Brides have always told us that there are two great joys of taking the venue. The first, of course, is the ballroom itself. So often when brides see stunning vaulted ballroom for the first time, they are blown away: the sheer size of the ballroom, its elegant feel and glorious décor makes a fairytale wedding easy to imagine. Taking up to 200 for dinner, or 260 for dinner and dancing, it is a unique space in the Highlands.
The other feature that has no doubt contributed to making us top of the list of the Best UK Wedding Venues is Achnagairn’s beautiful design. With our exclusive use policy, a wedding at Achnagairn is about so much more than just renting a space, it is about having your friends and family around you for the most important days of your life. We rent out the whole castle, meaning all its bedrooms and reception rooms are completely yours for the entire duration of your stay! And since each bedroom has been individually designed with its very own name and theme, everyone will find a room to fall in love with!
Weddings at Achnagairn Castle are magical. Whether you choose to tie the knot in the ballroom itself, or outside under the stone arch, our dedicated team will make the day completely flawless. After all, isn’t that what you would expect from the very best of the Best UK Wedding Venues!
But don’t just take our (and Harper’s Bazaar’s!) word for it! Contact us today for more information on Achnagairn Castle, or to book a viewing!
