Fabulous, romantic wedding venue for 200 guests in the Highlands with a ballroom and wedding party accommodation

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. Achnagairn Castle, Beauly, Inverness-shire, Scotland, sleeps 55 - 140 in 59 bedrooms.

This is a fantastic venue for up to 200 of your nearest and dearest to celebrate a special wedding day with you. Achnagairn is a fabulous Scottish castle set in 30 acres of grounds, manicured gardens and pretty woodland. The vaulted ceiling ballroom with minstrel’s gallery is a stunning room that can be dressed for a lovely ceremony with lights and flowers and transformed into a banqueting hall for the wedding breakfast. For the evening entertainment this room becomes party central, whether you opt for a DJ, live band or some Scottish dancing. Although it’s only a 15 minute drive from Inverness, 140 loved ones can stay at Achnagairn without having to worry about a late taxi home.

The gardens and grounds have many wonderful corners for photo opportunities and there are also plenty of exceptional places inside for capturing special moments, including the impressive staircase for the bride’s arrival and the glamorous reception rooms with fireplaces if the weather isn’t great (although Achnagairn looks possibly more beautiful in the snow).

At Achnagairn Castle there is plenty of room for loved ones to join you for a weekend of festivities. Arrive on Friday evening, enjoy a family dinner and drinks before heading off to bed in the castle itself or one of the estate mini manors 200 yards away. Share breakfast or brunch in the dining room on the morning of the special day before getting suited and booted and joining the others for the big event at the ballroom. On the Sunday, enjoy a leisurely morning and a walk around the estate before the party disperses.
