Scottish wedding castles.


There are many castles around Scotland with some wonderful settings and offering very good packages, when people talk of castles as a possible venue for their wedding the first thoughts are it must be very expensive.

For a single day package for somewhere like Dundas Castle a package averages between £4600 to £7500 depending on what time of year you get married.


Dundas is a 15th castle with lots of additions made during the 19th century very imposing building situation near the city of Edinburgh as with many castles it has a place in history.

Moving across to some of the lovely islands of Scotland why not consider Brodick Castle on the island of Arran, with good connections from Glasgow to Ardrossan harbour and regular ferry crossing makes it quite accessible, sits quite happily near the towering peak of Goatfell, surrounded by gardens and within the country park.
