Achnagairn Castle – Perfect Manors, Inverness
Wow. Achnagairn Castle has absolutely everything on a Highland wedding tick list. The Castle itself is a breath-taking white walled early 19th-century mansion built in the classic Scottish style. The many bedrooms and mock-turrets look out across formal gardens and woodland onto a broad sweep of Highland scenery. The grand ballroom, which can be used for both ceremony and reception, is just as gorgeous. With abundant natural light, high ceilings, dark wood panelling and bags of historic elegance, it’s one of the best places for your special day.
The Kingsmills Hotel, Inverness
The Kingsmills Hotel is a revelation. Set within several acres of beautiful manicured gardens and tree-lined avenues, the core of the hotel is a graceful old 18th-century manor house that preserves many charming original features. Attached to this is a state-of-the-art wedding suite that can accommodate up to four hundred guests. The real strength of the Kingsmills is their friendliness, hospitality and attention to detail. They will make you and your guests feel utterly pampered and looked after, which after all is the whole point of a wedding. Add to this excellent food, luxurious accommodation and sumptuous contemporary style, and the Kingsmills becomes a winning wedding venue in our eyes.
