About Galloway Activity Centre

Your Unique Day

If you are looking for something different then look no further. Each Loch Ken Wedding is unique and our small team will work with you to create a personalised wedding weekend that your guests will be talking about for years to come. We only host a handful of weddings each year, each one is special and we don’t believe in set packages – this is your day, the way you want it.

Stunning Grounds & Accommodation

We have 30 acres of grounds overlooking Loch Ken with some of the most stunning views you will find in Scotland. For your wedding weekend this is closed off to the public for your exclusive use. Our 83 bed spaces are nestled around the grounds and include luxury off-grid cabins, quirky glamping options and en-suite lodge rooms. The Otter Eco-Bothy is the perfect luxury honeymoon suite and is a highlight for many couples. With its log fired hot tub overlooking the water there’s no better way to finish your big day than by soaking under the vivid stars of the Galloway Dark Sky Park?

Fab Indoor Spaces

As part of your wedding package we help you decorate our 130 seat glass fronted dining room to your individual tastes. Imagine enjoying a celebratory feast with your loved ones while looking out over the stunning vista of Loch Ken. Adjacent to the dining room is our much loved Boat Shed. It makes the perfect dance floor for the evening and a beautiful space during the day for your guests to enjoy canapés after your ceremony. For each wedding we convert an adjacent room into our “Capsize Bar” for which we can arrange a late licence up to 1am on the day of your ceremony

Memorable Activities

For a truly memorable weekend you can take advantage of the Galloway Activity Centre’s 30 years’ experience delivering award winning activities. As personalised as the rest of your wedding we can arrange anything from Highland Games to a Bride vs Groom Dragon Boat race to an exciting selection of night time activities. We’ve yet to have someone say their vows on the 30 foot giant swing so you could be the first!

    Wedding Venue

    Wow! My partner and I were so thrilled we chose this as our wedding venue.

    The staff couldn't be more helpful or do more, the highland games were fantastic and a real ice breaker for the wedding. My guests can't stop raving about how wonderful it all was.

    If we could have our wedding day again, I would chose to have it here...again. It was everything we had hoped it would be.

    Beautiful, laid back and fun wedding

    If you want an outside wedding, this is a venue you really can't beat. There are hills, a Loch, activities, excellent accommodation for wedding party and guests alike, the staff couldn't have been more helpful and the food was excellent. Our guests all had a ball and are still talking about how much they enjoyed the weekend. We're very grateful to GAC to Richard, Harriet and the rest of the team for letting us have our wedding there and making it such a great weekend for everyone (even the mother in law!).
