Detailed Description

Assynt House is an exclusive use wedding venue situated in the Highlands of Scotland just half an hour from Inverness. You can choose to marry in the gardens of Assynt House or inside their wood paneled drawing room. The drawing room is then the venue for your wedding meal, which is taken care of by in-house chefs with great reputations. Perfect for weddings of up to 50 guests, Assynt House is a unique venue which allows you to put your stamp on your day while the venue take care of the setting up and cleaning up! There's also plenty of room outside to hire a marquee for up to 150 people. A Georgian Manor House, Assynt House sits amongst six acres of garden and woodland with plenty of photo opportunities for your big day. The accommodation comes as part of your exclusive use rental of the house, with seven individually designed en-suite bedrooms you can choose for your nearest and dearest to stay with you on the days leading up to or after your wedding day, with no minimal rental you can do what works for you. All weddings are individually cared for and Assynt House only hosts a small number of weddings each year giving you some exclusivity and the personal touch.

FAQs (10)

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
This is very hard! One couple had a really intimate wedding in the drawing room with just their closest family and a few friends and then after drinks and canapés the rest of the guests arrived, they gathered in the garden and one of their friends "married them" all over again with everyone there, so informal and very special.
