As many of you will be aware, Eilean Donan Castle has become a hugely popular venue for weddings, and our new Eilean Donan Apartments offers the perfect location to accommodate wedding guests all under one roof. Even better is the fact that there’s less than half a mile between the two, and many of the apartments have wonderful views to the castle itself.
In total, we can currently provide self-catering accommodations for approximately 40 people, although eventually, this number will be closer to 60. Add in our beautiful Eilean Donan Holiday Cottage overlooking the castle itself, which has proved a huge hit with our Brides & Grooms, and all of a sudden, you have the makings of a truly memorable event.
In addition, if you are booking all twelve apartments for three days, it is also possible to hold your wedding reception in a marquee on the lawn in front of the apartments with the castle, hills and lochs as your backdrop.
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.
Emma and Mitchell were married here recently and utilised Eilean Donan Apartments for themselves, and their friends & family. Many thanks to Thistle Productions for this stunning video. Hopefully, this might give you a few ideas of your own……
