Unique outdoor wedding venue – Altskeith Country House

Unique outdoor wedding venue Scotland

Altskeith Country House is a unique outdoor wedding venue in Scotland.  We have been lucky with the number of wedding ceremonies we have hosted in the gardens over the years.

Most couples who choose to get married here are looking for an unique wedding venue and their most important priority is to be married outdoors.  We are lucky to have one of the most stunning settings for a wedding and being a water front location with Ben Lomond as a backdrop it really is a unique setting.

Every ceremony is so different and personal to each couple.  We have hosted a variety of different types of ceremonies covering all religions.   Each ceremony can have a mixture of music, readings, singing, stories, readings and tea ceremonies, each uniquely selected by the couple.  In addition handfasting, warming of rings or drinking from the Quiach provide a more individual and unique ceremony.  Every couple have their own ideas of how they would like their ceremony to be personal to them.  Once the ceremony is completed and the couple are married the rest of the day continue until the early hours.  For the latest weddings taking place at Altskeith Country House please check out our Facebook page we post photos of recent weddings regularly.
