Wedding Property Type: 
Romantic venue for your civil wedding and reception for up to 200 with accommodation near the Kyles of Bute

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Ormidale House Estate, Dunoon, Argyll, Scotland, sleeps 6-73 in 30 bedrooms.

With 20 acres of grounds, fabulous views, and top class accommodation on site for up to 73 people, we believe the Ormidale House Estate must now be one of the most attractive private venues for a wedding in Scotland. We've hosted some really lavish wedding parties here, with top of the range marquees, amazingly lit, vintage champagnes flowing and £60 per head breakfasts. But we've had some very informal bashes as well, at much lower budgets, and it can also be an incredibly cost-effective way to go about things – both for you and your guests.

We have hosted special days with humanist, civil, Catholic and Church of Scotland services having taken place in the house and grounds. Kilmodan Church is just a couple of miles away, and is a really pretty venue for those wanting a religious ceremony in a traditional setting – but Scottish law recognises humanist ceremonies as binding, and also allows a minister of religion to conduct the ceremony anywhere he likes, so you have all the flexibility in the world.

You can provide your own alcohol and organise the different elements of your wedding yourself, or we can offer help with all aspects. Whether you take just one house, or all three, whether you want a marquee – or a giant yurt – in the garden or courtyard, or just to use the house itself, we can manage intimate or large-scale ceremonies and celebrations for anything from a dozen to 200 guests.

Whichever option you choose, you'll be well looked after and help is always at hand in the run-up to your special day. And at the end of the festivities, up to 73 family and friends can be accommodated on site.
