Full Description
For the day you’ll treasure, you need a classic and charming venue to ensure perfection from the moment you arrive, until your last guest leaves the dance floor. Durn House is a traditional 18th Century Scottish Georgian Mansion House. Steeped in sophistication, glamour, and history, Durn House has been restored to its former glory creating a unique and intimate Wedding Venue. ​ We are not great believers in rigid packages we believe weddings are personal and unique to each couple and should be designed around you. Durn House is an ideal wedding venue, accommodating up to 48 day guests and additional evening guests as required. For couples with a larger guest list, we can provide the use of a stunning Marquee, or Teepee. Specialising in Rustic Weddings, Durn House is also famous for bohemian beach weddings. Our dedicated Wedding Planning Team will be with you every step of the way helping with supplier recommendations, menus, and style choices as and when required to ensure your day runs smoothly from dawn to after dusk.

Travel Notes

It's best to search for us on Google maps. There are signs to the House on the roads to the west of Portsoy, coming in from Banff, and if you're coming from Elgin way in the East, we are at the very end of the road when you turn right directly after the gas station as you enter Portsoy.
