Scotland has been voted the most beautiful country in the world. And for good reason too. Its stunning scenery creates the perfect backdrop for any wedding. There are hundreds of wedding venues to choose from in Scotland. From ancient castles to distilleries, you’re sure to find somewhere that you’ll fall in love with.
We’ve compiled this list of some of the unique wedding venues that Scotland has to offer.
Unique Wedding Venues
One of the more unusual wedding venues on this list is Roulotte Retreat. This fantastic venue boasts the only place in the UK with a collection of French hand carved Roulottes. These charming caravans can sleep 2 – 4 people and surround ‘an enchanting lochan’. Receptions take place in the art studio surrounded by Scot’s pine.
Situated in the heart of the Scottish borders surrounded by stunning scenery, this secluded venue is sure to please anyone looking for a vintage, intimate wedding.
When you think of beach weddings you don’t automatically think Scotland. However, if you’re considering a beach wedding then look no further than Harvest Moon in East Lothian. According to the Scottish Holiday travel guide, this area has the least rain and more sunshine than any other part of the UK.
You can host your reception in a marquee before retiring to one of their 7 spacious treehouses or safari tents with wood-burning stoves.
The great thing about weddings in Scotland is that you can get married just about anywhere. Choose your own venue by hosting your wedding in one of Papakata’s Sperry tents or traditional Scandinavian teepees. The team at Papakata will come out and set up the venue to your specifications. They even provide a 24/7 call out service with spare tents and crews.
If you’re having a wedding, party, corporate shindig or festival, look no further than PapaKata. Their Teepees (Tipi’s) and Sperry tents will transform your event into a once-in-a-lifetime celebration. Spacious and flexible, their teepees (or tipi’s/tepees) and Sperry tents cater for just about any size and type of event. The Teepees can be used individually or joined together to increase capacity; the sides can be raised or lowered to create just the right space, whilst the Sperry tents come in four stunning sizes.
Don’t worry about furnishings either. You can truly make your wedding venue unique with the level of customisation that Papakata provide. From French oak wine barrels and floral chandeliers to wood-burning fires, Papakata is sure to make your wedding day extra special.
Another thing we love about Papakata is their commitment to the environment. They offset their carbon footprint of delivering the tents by planting trees. How awesome.
The Barn at Dalduff Farm, Ayrshire
If a rustic wedding is something you’re looking for then the Barn at Dalduff Farm is certainly worth considering. Restored in 2007 this venue retains many of its original features and would provide the perfect setting for any wedding.
For the wedding party, the farmhouse is included in the 2018 venue hire price. The farmhouse accommodates up to 10 people and it is all yours for 2 nights. Perfect if you want to stay there the night before the big day.
The venue is a 45-mile drive from Glasgow and there is space for coach parking. There are also plenty of hotels and B&Bs nearby for guest accommodation.
The barn can host up to 120 covers for dinner and a further 30 evening guests. If you need something bigger then there is an area for a marquee. If you decide to use a marquee, you can still use the barn for your ceremony.
Hilltop Wedding Venue, Schiehallion
If you really want a feel for Scotland, look no further than a wedding 2500 feet above sea level. The Bothy atop Schiehallion mountain offers breathtaking views of Ben Nevis and the Scottish landscape. This truly intimate venue can only host up to 18 people. This wedding venue is only accessible by Land Rover but it is sure to create an unforgettable experience.
