Really? One of the best venues in the UK? What’s so special? Maybe, we are a little biased, but we would say everything! See below for just a few highlights.
Achnagairn Castle is a five-star exclusive-use venue, set in the beautiful Highlands of Scotland, on a 30-acre estate. It is breathtaking as a wedding venue, particularly thanks to the castle's crowning glory - a magical, historic, vaulted ballroom.
The ballroom is always the centrepiece of weddings at Achnagairn: the aisle for you to walk down, the setting for the grand wedding breakfast, and the site of the dancing that goes on to the early hours. It truly lends itself perfectly to fairytale weddings, large or small.
We are so happy we found you... What a perfect venue! All of our guests were raving about it and we couldn't have better memories of our big dayBobbie & Oliver Corbett
Total privacy for you and your guests in the 24 bedroom castle. All the bedrooms, reception rooms and the glorious grounds are yours and yours alone.
The jewel in Achnagairn's crown! A magnificent room with space for all your guests: seating up to 200 for dinner, and taking 260 for drinks and dancing.
We can accommodate everyone! There are 62 bedrooms on the estate (24 in the castle, and 38 further bedrooms in the "Mini Manors" on the grounds of the estate, a stone's throw from the castle).
Every room has been meticulously designed and is bursting with character - no two are the same! Bedrooms, bathrooms, reception rooms... You name it, they are all unique.
We have a team who love weddings, who always go above and beyond, and who don't have the word "no" in their vocabulary.
Our catering is outstanding. Our chefs were awarded Two AA Rosettes for the restaurant on the estate, and they tailor make every wedding menu to your tastes.
Achnagairn has beautiful landscaped gardens for magical wedding photos and lots of space on the lawns for activities.
We are very easy to get to: only seven miles from Inverness (15 minutes from Inverness centre, 30 minutes from Inverness airport, and a 20 minute drive from Loch Ness for the more intrepid guests).
It is your wedding. We believe it should be exactly as you want it, and can tailor make every part of it to your desires.
Our guest book overflows with compliments from delighted brides and grooms who have had magical weddings with us.
But those things are all physical. What really sets up apart is our ethos: “Escape the Ordinary”. This informs all that we do. We feel life is too short for anything less than the extraordinary. Natural beauty, architectural harmony, impeccable service, outstanding food, sumptuous design, breathtaking views, friendly and dedicated staff who are always happy to provide more, to smile more and to go not just the extra mile but even a whole league further.
