A good friend just returned from a wedding at a Scotland castle and said the experience was unreal!
The ambiance sounded too “Four Weddings and a Funeral” chic to resist checking out. So, we came upon this charming 15th Century Scottish castle and had to share it with you.

From what we’ve discovered, it appears this beautifully kept medieval venue really caters to brides and grooms in search of an authentic experience. If your idea of wedding bliss is more kilts and knights than starry nights at the beach, why not consider this castle for a unique destination event?
Here’s what the venue itself has to say about the experience:
