Full Description
Set in 5 acres of peaceful grounds between Edinburgh and Glasgow, Shieldhill Castle provides the perfect backdrop for a wedding. The candle-lit chapel provides a unique sense of intimacy and romance that is ideal for a marriage ceremony whilst the castle itself brings occasion to the day, offering historic charm in idyllic countryside surroundings. We also cater for outside ceremonies (weather permitting) on the front lawn. The permanent marquee, adorned with twinkling fairy lights, is the perfect location for both your wedding breakfast and evening reception. It can seat up to 150 guests dining and 200 guests for your evening reception. The dance floor can be hidden during your meal which gives another wow factor to your day as your evening reception is revealed. Accommodation is plentiful, boasting 16 luxurious en-suite bedrooms within the main castle building, 4 log cabins and a converted Victorian stable block which offers a further 10 family rooms; two of which have fully accessible wet rooms. Shieldhill Castle specialise in making your big day unique to you, and memorable for both your guests and yourselves. Whether your wedding is for up to 2 or 200, they have everything you need to make your day truly magical. Please call us on 01899 220035 or email Fiona, our Event Manager at to arrange an exclusive viewing and discover this extraordinary venue for yourself.
