Just Magical
Venue Service

By Lila Polarski, on 23 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 24 Aug 2017

We liked the cosiness and intimacy, the stone steps, the ability to have our guests in a circle around us, and of course the greenery and beautiful loch view … That day it drizzled very lightly but when I walked down the ‘aisle' a ray of sunshine came out from in-between the clouds. It was just magical!”

We fell in love with Ardanaiseig
Venue Service

By Denise & Aaron Austin nee Jamieson, on 22 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 11 Mar 2017

We fell in love with Ardanaiseig as soon as we arrived. It had everything we wanted, traditional and ruggedly Scottish with the loch and woods, and didn’t feel intimidating or pretentious. We felt so comfortable and at home, and the staff were so lovely and friendly. We had a wonderful time and our families loved it too.“

We couldnt have asked for more!
Venue Service

By Pete SharwoodSmith, on 02 Nov 2015

We just got married at Ardanaiseig, and it was exactly what we had dreamed of. Kari was great during the planning stages, when we really relied on her as we were working on a different continent for the whole build up! She was also fantastic during the event, keeping the day running like clockwork. The venue itself is beautiful both inside and out. All our guests stayed at the hotel for the whole weekend, so we had a brilliantly intimate gathering. The whole team worked tirelessly to deliver our perfect day. We couldn't have asked for more! A big thank you to Kari and all the staff for giving us and our guests the best weekend ever!!!

We cannot fault a single thing!

Thank you so much for making our wedding just as we wanted it. We absolutely loved our stay at Ardanaiseig and cannot fault a single thing. The hotel and surroundings could not have been more perfect and the food and fabulous service from yourselves and all other members of staff couldn't have been better! Thank you for making our special day perfect!"

Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Mowat, on 06 Jan 2014

"Our whole wedding weekend was totally how we imagined it would be and that is because of you and the rest of the Ardanaiseig staff. Every little detail was covered. The drawing room looked superb with seat covers, the canapes were delicious and the meal exceeded expectations. Everyone was talking about it for days afterwards. Some of our guests said it was the best wedding they had been too!"
