Information For Dunkeld House Hotel

If you are looking for a romantic setting for your wedding, amid the stunning countryside of Perthshire, with a warm contemporary feel and friendly, helpful staff, not to mention delicious food and gorgeous, comfortable bedrooms, then look no further.

Dunkeld House Hotel, once the holiday home of the Dukes of Atholl and now a luxury country house hotel with a multi-million pound face lift, sits on the banks of the River Tay, in 280 acres of woodland.

If you are planning your day with just a handful of your nearest and dearest or celebrating in style with up to 180 guests, we have an event room that you will love.

Whatever you choose, you will have a dedicated wedding planner to work with you throughout, a red carpet arrival, a block-booking of bedrooms for you guests, and almost limitless settings around the estate for that iconic photograph of your big day.

Nestled in the heart of Perthshire landscape, the traditional country house is the perfect place to create lasting memories and wow your guests.

“When you come down the drive, your own little castle appears. Even on the busiest of days, it is an oasis of calm,” says May.

“And the view from the marquee is amazing.”

Welcome to Dunkeld House Hotel and the happiest day of your life.

Calm Presence
Ingrid and I just wanted to write and tell you that although we were unsure at the outset of this journey what kind of day we wanted for our wedding, had we known it would have been exactly what we got!
Everything was perfect and of course the hotel and their staff deserve enormous thanks and credit for that.
Gordon was a calm presence who kept everything under control and I would also commend Zoe who was working the bar with a cheery smile all night long and is exactly the kind of person I would wish to be representing my business!
Everyone loved the setting and the reviews of the food were all first class.
And to your contribution eilidh, thank you so much for everything you did. Answering all the silly questions in garbled emails but always with patience and tolerance. Thank you.

My husband and I got married here on 28th December, stunning location and staff amazing. Special thank to the events planner Eilidh and master of ceremony James. My brother forgot his shirt and James literally gave him the shirt of his back! Can't ask for better service than that.
