The Kirk at Glencorse House
Nestled in the foothills of the Pentlands stands Glencorse Old Kirk – the most romantic setting imaginable for a wedding ceremony. The Kirk stands in the grounds of Glencorse House which offers a magnificent location for your wedding reception and with its lush parkland, lake and verdant rhododendrons provides an idyllic backdrop for stunning photography.
Glencorse Old Kirk dates back to the 17th century and the famous Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson worshiped there and indeed wrote about the Kirk and its woodland setting on a number of occasions.
“If my spirit returns to earth it will be found wandering through Glencorse Woods or sitting on the old bridge at Glencorse Kirk, the finest spot on earth”.
The Kirk holds approximately 130 people and has been carefully and beautifully restored to make it into a very private and intimate venue for your wedding ceremony.

Wedding season availability
There is good local bed and breakfast accommodation nearby and many hotels of varying prices in Edinburgh.
Take the A701 from Edinburgh towards Penicuik. After reaching Ikea continue on this road past Nissan garage at traffic lights and then over two roundabouts until you reach Gowkleymoss roundabout (very large). Continue over this and through small dual carriageway with Glencorse Golf Club on left and then very shortly the Fisher's Tryst pub. Directly opposite this take the road to the right signposted Glencorse Kirk. There is a large church on the brow of the hill ( this is NOT us). Continue round corner and to the bottom of hill - you have arrived! These are short distances and only about 2 miles from Ikea.
Follow for Edinburgh A702 from junction 13 of the A74(M). Three miles beyond the hamlet of Silverburn is the ‘Flotterstone Inn’ 550m beyond the Inn the road starts to rise. Take the small junction on the right. Follow it all the way past Glencorse Stables to Glencorse House at a sharp right hand turn in the road.
