About 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 loch.

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. 

  • The ballroom can comfortably cater for one hundred and twenty dinner guests.
  • Smaller and more intimate weddings can be held in the elegant dining room.
  • The Castle can sleep up to twenty-three guests in luxurious, individually designed bedrooms.
  • An additional 76 guests can be accommodated in comfort within the estate.
  • Exclusive use of the castle, St Palladius Church and the estate grounds.

    Absolutely fantastic venue and amazing team!

    Absolutely fantastic venue and amazing team! Couldn't thank them enough. It felt like the most amazing relaxed weekend away with friends and family. Food was awesome, the fact that all your guests can be accommodated, the castle layout is flexible and luxurious (but feels homely too), makes this a great choice. Nikki and Tamsin are both really accommodating, take the strain off the couple and will make sure your day is perfect. Strongly recommend.

    We had the best wedding weekend ever here!

    We had the best wedding weekend ever here! It was so nice to be away with all of our friends and family for two nights to celebrate our marriage. The Friday night was so chilled and everyone commented on how relaxing and lovely it was to catch up in our own space before the busy wedding day commenced. The staff were so helpful in setting up however we wanted things to be on both days. They did so much more than I expected and went above and beyond in many ways. The food was delicious and many of our guests commented on how good it was. Thank you so much to the whole Drumtochty team for making our wedding extra special.
