If you’re looking at this post, you might very well be considering choosing Eilean Donan as a venue for your wedding. You’ll have so many important decisions to take in the months ahead, and like most couples, probably only perfection will suffice for your every plan and detail. The problem is that it can sometimes be difficult to get a true feel for a setting or location prior to the big day itself. How do you create your vision? Well hopefully this post just might help.
We welcome Brides & Grooms to Eilean Donan from all round the world for their special day, with ceremonies normally taking place in our beautiful Banqueting Hall inside the castle itself. Every so often, when the happy couple desires, (and the weather Gods permit) we also hold ceremonies in the inner courtyard of the castle, overlooking the very lochs and mountains that draw our visitors here.

Hopefully, this might give you a few ideas of your own.
Commonly referred to as Scotland’s most romantic castle; Eilean Donan offers a truly spectacular venue for your wedding. Located where three sea-lochs meet, surrounded by highland mountains and situated on a small island only accessible by its stone bridge, the castle has a unique magic all of its own, and is guaranteed to leave your guests talking for years to come.
With those guests in mind, we have just opened our brand new development of Eilean Donan Apartments, located just across the water from the castle itself. Offering 12 beautifully appointed, contemporary self-catering units of varying sizes it’s the perfect location to house your party under one roof. With six acres of land, there’s even room enough for a marquee on the lawn, although the area is well served with other wedding services too.
For the privacy of the bride and groom, we also offer our stunning holiday cottage which sits on the loch-side overlooking the castle, enjoying un-interrupted views which will simply leave you breathless.
So before you make any big decisions, just check out either of our two websites or social media channels to see the full Eilean Donan picture. You’ll most certainly have questions, so please don’t hesitate to call Rona, our Wedding Co-ordinator on 01599 555202 who’ll be very happy to help.
