we couldn’t have asked for better service from Shona and Jane
We had our wedding at Glen Tanar ballroom and used most of the cottages on site for guests, we couldn’t have asked for better service from Shona and Jane. They were both brilliant and so so helpful with any questions or worries we had.
The cottages we rented for the weekend were perfect and I would definitely recommend them to anyone interested in a weekend away in the countryside or for having their wedding on the estate.
Thank you to all the staff who made our wedding weekend so brilliant!

Glen Tanar is the most stunning venue
Glen Tanar is the most stunning venue; from the accommodation in the cottages on the estate, to the grounds that are so immaculately maintained, to the absolutely stunning ballroom that is full of history, beauty and love!
Everything ran entirely smoothly on our big day thanks to Shona, the manager who was so welcoming and down to earth and incredibly organised!
The recommended suppliers were all fantastic and in the run up to the event and on the day everyone worked together with excellent communication to provide the perfect and most relaxing time for me and my husband (!) and all our friends and families!
Thank you Shona and all the team at Glen Tanar!

Glen Tanar Ballroom
Wow wow and wow again! Glen Tanar Ballroom is a
Phenomenal place to get married without question! We booked our wedding approx a year in advance along with 8 cottages on Glen Tanar Estate: Butlers Lodge, Woodend, Garden Cottage, East and West Millfield Cottages, Rowan Cottage, Braehead and Birkelunn, due to the number of our guests we also had to book 3 cottages offsite as well as to full hotels in Aboyne. Due to us living in Leicester Shona was just amazing and perfect. She goes way above and beyond helping with all requirements, I honestly believe that if we asked her for the moon Shona would of found a way to make it happen! The Ballroom and grounds are truly a magical place to get married but couple that with Shona and you have an out of this world place to get married, Shona is one hell of a lady, nothing is beyond her reach in ensuring you receive the best and beyond for your wedding. All of our guests love the cottages/lodges and all would/will be staying there again In the not to distant future. I would like to thank everyone at Glen Tanar and especially Shona for making our wedding truly amazing & beyond anything we could of dreamed of! I would recommend cottages and ballroom to anyone in a heartbeat - once again thank you Glen Tanar for (what a lot of our guest said) the wedding of the century

Love Matt & Katie Waters

I love helping couples with all aspects of planning their dream wedding from start to finish. Coming from the local area I can recommend the area’s best suppliers from florists and photographers to caterers and cakes, as well as pipe bands, fireworks and everything in between!
