Have you always dreamed of a fairytale wedding? Then where better to host your big day than at our very own Achnagairn Castle. Located on the stunning Achnagairn Estate in Inverness, our beautiful castle wedding venue was awarded the Highlands “Best Wedding Venue” by the Scottish Wedding Awards. Not only one of the top Scottish wedding venues, Achnagairn Castle has also just been named the Best Wedding Venue in the UK by the prestigious Harper’s Bazaar Magazine. When it comes to a fairytale wedding, there’s no better place for castle weddings in Scotland!

From the minute you step through the door of Achnagairn Castle, you get a sense of the place’s opulence and luxury. With a five-star rating and a team dedicated to making your wedding simply extraordinary, no other castle wedding venue will be able to compete. 

Complete with an ornate ballroom that can host up to 260 people for drinks or 200 for dinner, there are 24 designer bedrooms for guests to stay. There is also the option of an additional 40 bedrooms only 200m from the castle in our Large Luxury Lodges. There’s no better place to host a grand castle wedding.

Whether you choose to tie the knot in the glorious vaulted ballroom itself, or underneath the grand stone arch in the grounds, the possibilities for truly unique wedding photography will be limitless. Get ready in the palatial Bridal Suite, and then after you have said ‘I do’, the exquisite formal gardens offers the ultimate romantic backdrop for your first shots as husband and wife. 

Although the castle has retained period features, each room in the castle has been expertly decorated, including our reception rooms – so you can host your post-ceremony celebrations in complete style.

Amazing venue! We held our wedding here over 3 days and it was just fantastic. The rooms, the rest of the space, the staff and the service, all great. Thanks!

We can't recommend the venue highly enough!

We got married at Achnagairn 2 weeks ago and had the best day! The venue itself is beautiful. Everyone in the main house loved the different rooms and it was great having the whole house to make our own. The lodges are of a very high standard and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their stays there. Feedback of the restaurant was also fantastic from those staying in he lodges.
Planning a wedding from Australia was never going to be easy so we ensured Achnagairn were aware of the help we would need. Sam was our main point of contact throughout the planning process and nothing was too much trouble.
We stayed for 3 nights and it was great having the house on the Sunday night for the party to continue with games in the hall.
The list of suppliers provided by Achnagairn were of a very high standard. Some that we used included Angela Stewart Creative, Justin Scobie & Highland Clay Shooting. Being able to shoot on the grounds was an easy & fun way for the guys to be entertained on the morning of the wedding. We can't recommend the venue highly enough to anyone thinking of having their wedding here!

I got married at Achnagairn on the 3rd January and had the best few days. The staff were fantastic from beginning to end and all our guests couldn’t believe how amazing and beautiful the whole place was. Thank you for helping create super memories

On the build up to our big day in February 2017, Sam was great at ensuring we knew all of our options and making sure things were just as we wanted. Her and John made a great team on our wedding day and made sure things ran smoothly – we did not have to worry about a thing. All staff were great on the day. The venue is spectacular and the flexibility that we had to do what we wanted with it, allowed us to create the relaxed weekend we wanted. Thank you to all at Achnagairn, Mr & Mrs Thomas
