A marquee can also be arranged in the grounds with a capacity of 150 guests.

Highland Hall, The Highlands

Sleeps 14

Highland Hall, Scotland

For the wedding of your dreams, this Georgian Scottish mansion has the ‘wow factor’ in spades. Unique wedding venues in the UK don’t come much more special than this Highland retreat – it once hosted President Roosevelt and his wife Eleanor during their honeymoon tour of Scotland! Why not start your special day with a private yoga or Pilates class followed by some deliciously indulgent spa treatments? Breakfast can be pre-booked and laid out by the chef, setting everyone up perfectly for the festivities ahead. And a games room will keep the younger guests entertained while the rest of the party get suited and booted.
