Be the first one to tell everyone about the experience you’ve had with this supplier.
Achnagairn Castle has just been named the Best Wedding Venue in the UK by the prestigious Harper’s Bazaar Magazine!
At Achnagairn, our mantra is “Escape the ordinary” – we believe that every wedding is unique, and each should be extraordinary.
Situated 7 miles from Inverness, Achnagairn Castle is a magical venue. The jewel in its crown is the magnificent vaulted ballroom – a fairytale location for you to tie the knot, and hold a wedding banquet for up to 200 people. The space is truly breathtaking, and you are completely free to make it your own!
Achnagairn Castle runs as an exclusive use venue, meaning that for the duration of your stay, the Castle is yours and yours alone – from the ballroom, to the gracious reception rooms and 24 individually designed bedrooms. Wedding parties usually stay with us for 2 nights, so that it isn’t all over in a flash, but rather you can have all your friends and family around you for the most special days of your life. The castle can sleep up to 55 in its 24 bedrooms, but Achnagairn Estate also has a further seven Large Luxury Lodges only 200m from the castle, meaning that you can have up to 130 people to stay with you on the estate!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.
Unique, romantic, grand, quirky, and completely breathtaking (oops, maybe that's more than 5..!)
Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
A tough one! Either the ballroom itself for grand surrounds, or the beautiful landscaped gardens...
What is your venue's most unique feature?
The Ballroom! The only one of its kind in the Highlands of Scotland, the ballroom was built in 1912 for the then owner's daughter's 21st birthday. Today, it is a magical place to tie the knot, or hold your wedding banquet.
