Unusual Wedding Venues in Scotland | Lochnell Castle, Oban

 

WHY CHOOSE LOCHNELL CASTLE FOR YOUR WEDDING? 

Lochnell Castle has amazing views of Ardmucknish Bay. It suits both a small wedding (2-12 people) and medium sized wedding (chapel can seat up to 100 guests). Lochnell can accommodate an outdoor wedding, weather permitting.  All that aside, here are three incredibly convincing reasons heralding the virtues of this West coast gem.

 

 
 

1. WEST COAST GLORY

Scotland's west coast is nothing short of spectacular. From the grounds of the castle there is an impressive  panoramic view of Ardmucknish Bay. The waterfront itself is easily accessed if you fancy heading down for some sunset beach photographs. 

 
 

 
 

2. IT'S A REALLY NICE CASTLE

The castle gardens and grounds are genuinely versatile. A range of wedding types + plans can be accommodated easily within the context of Lochnell. Not are you be surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK, parts of the building date back to one of Scotland's earliest Christian settlements. It's a private residence so when you hire it, you can opt for exclusive use. The combination of these factors convey a sense of authentic privacy for you and your guests. The grounds include a walled garden, sprawling greens, woodlands + are well kept. There are plenty of nooks + crannies (outside + inside) you can escape to for some creative portraits with you + your photographer. The house itself is in excellent condition and packed with personality on account of its well-maintained appearance coupled with original features.

 
 

 
 

3. SCOPE TO ADD YOUR OWN PERSONALITY

Weddings at Lochnell Castle can be tailored in a variety of ways. It's important to note that this isn't a wedding venue. It's a private estate and lived in home. I think that's one of the selling points of this spot. You'll find that you'll be well looked after and have the confidence that you're one of a handful of weddings held at this wonderful location. There's plenty of scope for adopting a DIY approach to ensure you make the various spaces afforded to you reflect your personality and character.
