Getting Married in Scotland


From the wedding ceremony to lavish receptions and the most romantic honeymoon, Scotland has got it all when it comes to accommodations. There are centuries-old castles, spacious mansions, charming villas and impressive hotel structures (some as old as a hundred years) which makes for ideal accomodations for a memorable wedding.

Most historical castles in Scotland are now transformed into for-lease houses or hotels that can accommodate all the wedding phases – ceremony, reception and honeymoon. For these flexible amenities and services, these castles are a practical accommodation choice.

Popular wedding castles include the Inverlochy Castle in Fort William, along the shores of a loch. The castle’s Great Hall is where most ceremonies take place, while guests can occupy the 17 bedrooms available here.

If one can afford it, get married in Skibo Castle in Dornoch (where Madonna was married), a high-end venue open only to members of the private club that owned it. The joining fee is £3,500, but the exclusivity and privacy that the estate gives the couple and their entourage is worth it.

Scotland is never short of classy hotels that are packed with year-round wedding guests from all over the world. Top picks include the Rocpool Reserve Hotel, Knockinaam Lodge, Isle of Eriska Hotel and Spa Island and the Westin Turnberry Resort. For a nice castle-hotel experience, the Boath House Hotel and Spa in Inverness combines aristocratic living with room service, amidst a lush 20 acres of woodland in the Scottish Highlands.

For would-be couples looking for a convenient, one-stop wedding accommodation haven im Scotland, Gretna Green village is the place to go. Gretna Green’s popularity as a wedding village started in the 16th century, when British laws only solemnized weddings for brides and grooms over 21 years old and young lovers found refuge in this Scottish village that is the nearest one to the border of Britain. Today, weddings remain as the village’s prime livelihood, with many shops focused on wedding-related retails like gowns, photo services, wines, flowers, trinkets, cars and limousine services.
