About Dunans Castle

Glendaruel, Argyll
Argyll, PA22 3AD

Dunans Castle offers wildly romantic adventure weddings and your chance to become part of a Scottish Castle's unique history! 

At Dunans Castle you can create your dream day. You can romance in the meadow, have a piper, piping you over an A-listed Bridge to your woodland ceremony, snuggle by a woodland campfire, see fireworks against a starry sky, celebrate in a gorgeous teepee marquee and dance the night away in the lantern-light. However you picture your perfect day here, we can make it happen!

Celebrate your inner wildness with a stylish outdoor wedding. You will have exclusive use of the beautiful woodland garden and lawns, with the ruin of Dunans Castle as your backdrop. Situated just an hour-and-a-half from Glasgow Airport, we’re perfectly placed for travelling guests and have easy access to top-class local suppliers. Whatever it is you’re after, we can find it for your special day!

In the glen of Glendaruel stands the magnificent ruined Castle of Dunans. A Baronial mansion set in gardens full of wild orchids, bluebells and rare rhododendrons. Look out for wild deer, golden eagles, pine martens and red squirrels too! This is a truly spectacular place to make your vows, and it is all yours, exclusively, for as long as your celebrations last. Say your vows in our wildflower meadow, or beside the waterfall, or beneath a shower of rhododendron blossoms. You can choose the place that makes your heart sing loudest. 

Dining is available from 2 to 50 guests. A choice of local catering is on offer, from rustic chic picnics, barbecues, high teas, and high end marquee dining, using the best in local produce.  

Accommodation is available on-site and our restored romantic bothy for two has underfloor heating, cosy sofa, mezzanine sleeping platform and skylight. Wind down after the adventures beside a crackling fire, then retire in style and lie beneath the brightest stars you could hope to see. Alternatively, this is a great space for the groom’s party, the night before the wedding day. In addition, 2 Luxury Bell tents provide on-site glamping for 6. 

For larger groups, our excellent local accommodation providers are no more than a 10-minute journey away, and our local drivers will be happy to provide transport at any time of night – or day!


Ask us about local bands, entertainers, pipers, florists, story teller, wedding cars, and confetti or book an adventure experience to make the most of your celebrations, wild swimming, guided walks, archery, simulated deer stalking (not live animals), backwoods cookery.
