It is difficult to imagine a more magical setting for your wedding than a stunning 19th Century Scottish castle, hidden away in a wild woodland glen.

Classical and elegant, the magnificent neo-gothic Drumtochty Castle has stood on the southern edge of Drumtochty Forest since 1812.

We invite you to enjoy the castle exclusively, in an atmosphere of privacy and luxury for your entire wedding weekend.

After the ceremony guests can enjoy champagne in the regal reception rooms or outside on the lawn before entering the magnificent ballroom where tables sparkle with the finest crystal, china and cutlery to enjoy a sumptuous banquet, fine wines and the best service.

"Our Wedding was in July. Nikki, Tamsin and the team were brilliant on the day of our wedding! All of our guests commented on the service and exceptional accommodation! The castle and grounds are beautiful and well kept. Would recommend to any bride or groom. 5 stars!"
Holly & Kieran


"We had the most magical wedding at Drumtochty Castle. Nothing was too much for Nikki and the team, they were willing to help us with anything we wanted. The castle itself is just beautiful and the church... wow. I couldn't have built anything more perfect in my dreams! Because most of our guests could stay on site, the weekend felt surprisingly relaxed - it was just one big party for everyone. And having the whole place to ourselves was wonderful. We could party 'til we dropped! This place has a special place in our hearts. We'll be back one day for an anniversary party!"
Fiona & Kevin


"My now husband and I were looking for the perfect venue in Scotland. And we actually found it at Drumtochty castle. Couldn't have dreamed of anything better. We made everyone come France and everyone loved it so much. Thank you again to the lovely Drumtochty team."
Lauren & Florian


"We had our wedding at Drumtochty in mid-August and cannot say enough about our experience. Every request - and I do mean *every* request - was met with an affable "no problem" and executed without our having to give it a second thought. The facilities are great, the team lovely to work with, and the location magnificent."
Jason & Ian


"We had a fantastic wedding weekend! Everything was exactly as we had hoped and Tamsin helped keep everything running perfectly and was on hand to answer all our queries in the run up to our big day. Lots of accommodation on-site meant the whole family could stay close by making for a whole weekend of celebrations. The perfect location for the perfect get away weekend wedding in Scotland!"
Fiona & Eddie


"We had the most incredible wedding at Drumtochty Castle; my wife, who has been dreaming of her big wedding day since she was a child, commented that it was more than she could ever have imagined, and i also had a couple of the best days of my life. We had the feeling we were at home, only home is a castle, and we were royalty. Every detail was catered for, nothing was too much for Nikki and the rest of the wonderful staff, and having all the most important people from all over the world coming to spend their time with us, is something we will never forget. We will be sure to visit in the future!"
Andrea & Martin
