Do You Want the Perfect Scottish Castle Wedding?

Naturally, you want to feel like royalty on your wedding day.

Everyone dreams of a fairy-tale setting, and what could make it more magical than having the perfect Scottish castle wedding?

From the breath-taking scenery of the West Coast of Scotland to the elegant rooms we have to offer, Barcaldine Castle makes the perfect venue for your wedding.

Scottish Castle Wedding

Here we have 5 reasons you should choose to have a Scottish castle wedding…

1. Unforgettable wedding ceremony

Travelling from a church or registry office to the reception can take up precious time on your big day, and most function rooms can’t offer both character and luxury. The convenience of having both your ceremony and reception in a historic castle gives you the best of both worlds. No time-consuming travelling and oodles of luxury and character to admire.

2. Private and secluded

Castles were made for being private and secluded. What better way to celebrate your wedding day than to escape from the outside world and have the whole castle to yourself!

3. Wedding photos

Can you think of a better backdrop for your wedding than to have a historic Scottish castle in the background of your photos?

4. Creating history

All castles have some form of history. By marrying at one, you’re becoming a part of its history and adding to its centuries-old story of romance!

5. Feel like royalty

As it’s your wedding day you already are the centre of attention. Why not make it a day to remember by dressing like royalty, as well as feeling like it? You are in a castle after all…

Having your wedding at Barcaldine Castle

Our ceremonies take place in the Great Hall in front of the large, open log fire. However, they can also take place by the sundial outside in the garden. Both options giving you fabulous views of the surrounding area. The tall ceilings and wooden beamed roofs give the castle an atmosphere of charm and character, but what more would you expect from a Scottish castle wedding?

This is an amazing place to stay for a big group! Normally the castle operates as a hotel, but we got it for an exclusive use for 6 couples during Christmas. Each couple got a separate bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, each offering its unique vibe. There is a large main hall with a long table for your celebration(s) that has a huge fireplace for cozy evenings. Adjacent is a small lounge with a small bar area where you can helpf yourself with a cocktail. The interriors are well maintained and you get immersed into the vibe of a couple of centuries ago. It was also decorated for Chirstmas (incl. a Christmas Tree) which was a nice addition. Before arriving we had expected stone cold castle inside and were prepared with thick sweaters and socks but the rooms were surprisingly warm. The castle is located in a walking distance from a loch surrouneded by farms with cows, chickens and turkeys. It is also a good base for exploring Scotland with an aprox. 1-hour drive to Glencoe or Glenfinnan. The kitchen was professionally equipped (because it is a hotel) and had all the cookware you may ever need for your cooking as well as enough tableware and cutlery for your large squad. Only thing to be aware of is that the kitchen is one floor below the main hall so you will need to do some leg excersice bringing plates up and down.

What a lovely stay booked this last minute. It's a luxury stay that combines history, we spent 1 night and couldn't fault it. The room is cosy and comfortable with a luxury touch on it.. maybe a magic mirror ? the lounge room/ dinning room is what we loved on our nights stay, we sat on the sofa at the log fire with our drinks in hand . The host and staff are amazing and made sure our stay that we were well looked after . Definitely would recommend and come back again, thanks for our wonderful stay.

Wonderful welcome on arrival. The castle is small but stunning. Stayed in the Caithness room. Very characterful - loved the turret room. Beautiful views. Enjoyed sitting by the open fire in the evening, and chatting to another couple of guests. Breakfast was enjoyable. Didn't see, or hear any spooks, but I'm sure they're about. Thoroughly recommend a night or two here. Take a bottle of wine, a book, and walking shoes.

The staff at the Castle was amazing. They did a fantastic job making us all feel at home while we were there including going above and beyond in several instances. The castle was beautiful and the views were unbelievable. Highly recommend for anyone looking to get away from it all but still treated like family.
