We have made so many happy memories
Venue Service

By Jane Cronshaw, on 11 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 19 Oct 2019

We had the most wonderful wedding at beautiful Cluny Castle, everything was simply perfect and it exceeded all expectations. We were blessed with the lovely autumn weather and can’t wait to see all the photos now. Thank you for letting our family use your magnificent home and for making us so welcome yet giving us “ free run”, the tips on cooking with the aga were vital! Your housekeeper and Gavin the butler were beyond helpful particularly with my elderly father. Your beautiful home and castle are now part of my family’s history and we made so many happy memories there, thank you!

The PERFECT experience
Venue Service

By Nir & Anna, on 11 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 09 Sep 2019

There is not enough words in my dictionary to describe the PERFECT experience we had at Cluny Castle. We are from Israel, and we decided to get married in Scotland, which is close to our hearts. We brought all of our family & close friends to stay at Cluny Castle for a whole week (26 people, 7 days), where the wedding took place. Make the long story short: ALL of the guests said this was the ultimate experience of their life, the castle rooms are AMAZING, and the service we got from Fiona, Jill, John and the other staff was 10 out of 10. And most important: The wedding exceeded expectations in every possible way. In my opinion, and after I checked many venues, Cluny Castle is the top venue in Aberdeenshire and maybe in entire Scotland. So THANK YOU Cluny Castle. We will visit again for sure in our anniversary.

The whole weekend was such an experience.

The timings of the day ran seamlessly and there was no stress. Cosmo - thanks so much for trusting us with your lovely home. The whole weekend was such an experience. Huge thanks again! Fiona and Richard

The setting was stunning.
Venue Service

By Jim Dunbar, on 11 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 02 Aug 2019

Our daughter's wedding was held at Cluny Castle in August 2019. The setting was stunning. The Chapel was magnificent and the Tenant's Hall with marquee extension was an excellent concept. Luckily we had a beautiful day and were able to congregate in front of the castle for champagne and canapes after the service but had the weather not been so kind, there were adequate indoor facilities in which to gather. The wedding planner and butler were excellent and everything we required was sourced. The rooms were outstanding and we will always have great memories of Cluny Castle. Thankyou.

Couldnt think of a better venue
Venue Service

By Sandy Livingstone, on 11 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 20 Jul 2019

Our daughter Debbie got married on Saturday 20 July 2019. W arrived at the castle on the Friday afternoon staying with family and friends until Sunday lunchtime. It was a fairy tale we didn't want to end. The accommodation is 5 star or more, services of Duncan our personal butler, fully stocked kitchen, huge air hockey table, table tennis, and the bedrooms are massive and lavish. Couldn't think of a better venue. Thank you for a wonderful weekend.

It was out of this world
Venue Service

By Debbie Livingstone, on 11 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 20 Jul 2019

I just wanted to thank Fiona, Cosmo & the whole Cluny team for everything. Words can't express what an amazing time we had, it was out of this world. Truly a fairy tale wedding. Everyone commented on how Cluny is a stunning venue and a hidden gem. From the moment we arrived it was as though we were royalty. The whole weekend passed in a whirlwind and I wish I could do it all over again! It was absolutely flawless from start to finish & I never wanted it to end. Thank you again, Debbie x

Cluny will forever be in our hearts
Venue Service

By Ainslie & Craig, on 11 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 12 Jul 2019

Cluny Castle will forever be in our hearts!! We got married in this stunning castle in July and it exceeded all of our expectations! We always wanted a venue where we could have both the ceremony and reception on site and a marquee with a view.....and what a view it was! Standing on the decking of the marquee with the castle reflecting on the water was magical! We also wanted a venue which could host our wedding party for the entire weekend. Cluny has amazing accommodation, walking into the rooms is just like walking into a 5* hotel room. We could have stayed forever! The chapel is enchanting and takes your breath away every time you walk through the doors! It is so inviting and when full of family and friends just feels like the warmest place on earth! The castle owner, Cosmo was extremely helpful! Our guests loved him! A special mention must be made to Jill, she helped us so much.She was so friendly and bent over backwards to help us at every turn. I’ve saved the best until last - the wonderful wedding planner Fiona!!! Fiona was outstanding throughout our whole experience! We’ve been married a month and I feel like I don’t want to let her go just yet!! She made our whole wedding experience enjoyable. It was difficult to plan from overseas but Fiona was always only a phone call away and after our conversations we felt so relaxed and reassured. On the day of the wedding Fiona was incredible. She made sure our day ran smoothly from start to finish and made sure we had the day of our dreams and beyond! The biggest thank you to all of you!! A dream team!

What can we say about Cluny? First of all it’s a beautiful venue, a fairytale like castle which all of our guests and family adored and rave about now. Our wedding was last weekend and we still can’t believe it went all so well, because it was frankly perfect, one of my sister even said it was “Magical” and I think it’s mainly due to the wonderful team of people that helped us on the day. Starting with Fiona, who was adorable and helped so much with the planning and on the day itself and really made the day go so smoothly. She did not rush us when we were getting late for the ceremony, because I couldn’t remember how to tie a bow tie (my husband’s) and even told me to take a few minutes when the stress was getting to me which I think helped massively because at that point I was a wreck! The owner Cosmo was just as lovely, he and his fiancé helped with everything from helping us set up the day before, greeting our guests to getting the entertainment where they were meant to go, he was wonderful. He shared his family home with us and we never felt anything but at home thanks to his warm welcome. He even stayed with us until all of the guests that were leaving via taxi had departed, which was much later than planned. We were surrounded with love and kindness which was honestly the best feeling ever. And everything from the photographer and the florist, to the caterer and the entertainment was perfect. Thank you all for making our day so special.

Everyone could not stop talking about Cluny

Fairytale Wedding
Venue Service

By Afia, on 15 May 2019Date of Wedding - 09 May 2019

I can't even begin to describe not only how stunning of a venue Cluny Castle is, but the owner, Cosmo Gordon and his unbelieveably talented team (Fiona Jones) and Emma Matthews were unbelievably warm, patient and accomodating to us. My fiance and i knew from the moment we saw Cluny Castle that we just had to get married there. From the moment we sent in our enquiry, Fiona responded with such warmth and detail that we knew this was the place for us. We also had the pleasure of meeting Cosmo who was so delightful and kind, it honestly amazed us! Emma Matthews is the wedding planner that we dealt with towards the end of our wedding preps and she was an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only is the venue STUNNING (our guests from Canada and UK were jaw-dropped at how beautiful this castle is), but the accomodation is out of this world. We had the pleasure of having the castle to ourselves for 2 nights and those are 2 nights we won't ever forget. Please do not hesitate to book this venue for your wedding! Thank you so very much for everything and for making this experience one we will never forget. All our love, the McClenaghan's xxx

Cluny is a wonderful and special place
Venue Service

By Venetia, on 11 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Feb 2019

A truly unique setting
Venue Service

By Rachel Tate, on 11 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 28 Dec 2018

We cannot thank Cluny Castle enough for providing the most spectacular venue for our wedding. This is one of few places that offers accommodation, exclusive use, an onsite chapel and genuine flexibility; all in a truly unique setting! If that wasn’t enough, the team are amazing - everyone was friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Fiona, in particular, is an absolute superstar and worked incredibly hard to help us in so many ways. On the day itself, they really helped the day flow by navigating guests and keeping everyone right. They were always on hand; without feeling intrusive or controlling. This really added something extra to the day, which I know isn’t always the feedback for exclusive use venues. But the Cluny team were faultless! We used the West Wing apartment for both the night before and night of the wedding: this provided a great space for a relaxed pre-wedding meal and also breakfast on the morning after the wedding. We also used the castle rooms on the night of the wedding, each of which are decorated differently (something that only added to the already unique surroundings). Our guests loved Cluny and enjoyed being able to see different parts of the castle and grounds throughout the day, rather than being confined to one or two spaces. The Tenant's Hall also provided a fantastic atmosphere for dinner; and the addition of a marquee in the courtyard worked really well for the evening reception afterwards. We have so many wonderful memories of our time at Cluny and would highly recommend it as an exclusive use venue with many unusual elements and endless possibilities!
