Information For Drumtochty Castle

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. From the moment you set eyes on the majestic Drumtochty Castle, you will be transported to a bygone era of opulence and romance. From balmy summer ceremonies outside to drinks in front of an open fire, whenever you choose to marry Drumtochty will provide the perfect setting.

A short carriage ride to the castle gates will take you to the fairytale church of St. Palladius where your ceremony can be performed. Alternatively, the marriage can be held in one of the reception rooms, in the castle grounds or by the lake.

After the ceremony guests can enjoy champagne in the regal reception rooms or outside on the lawn before entering the magnificent ballroom where the tables sparkle with the finest crystal, china and cutlery to enjoy a sumptuous banquet, fine wines and the best of service. Decorated in soft, neutral tones and boasting an ornate ceiling, the ballroom lends itself perfectly to all themes and colour schemes. The space can comfortably accommodate 120 seated guests and smaller, more intimate parties can be hosted in the elegant dining room.

Following the evening’s festivities, you and your guests can retire to the sumptuous accommodation on offer. With space for up to 99 guests in the castle, wings, lodges and stable apartments, you can relax and enjoy the castle’s wonderful atmosphere for that little bit longer.

The team warmly invite you to enjoy the castle exclusively, in an atmosphere of privacy and luxury for your entire wedding weekend. To experience Drumtochty Castle for yourself, contact the team and arrange a viewing.
