    Murthly Castle; absolutely perfect venue!

    As soon as we viewed Murthly Castle we fell in love! It had everything and more that we were looking for; set in stunning grounds with its very own unique Chapel (has to be seen be believed!), walled garden, lochan, and ancient woodland.
    We had 60 guests and could therefor use the inside of the castle itself for the wedding (though there is plenty of room just outside the Castle or in the walled garden for a marquee). Having our wedding breakfast in the vaulted dining room was so special. Everybody commented on how stunning the whole place was. It made for the most perfect day in every single way.
    Thomas (who owns the Castle) was lovely, so easy to work with and also on hand during the day to answer all the guests questions about the history of the place etc. We had to move our original date due to Covid which was no problem for him whatsoever.
    I could not recommend Murthly Castle enough. A stunning venue in every way!

    Oh and very dog friendly too (we had our French Bulldog as our ring bearer!)

    A hidden gem in Perth

    We had our outdoor ceremony and marquee wedding in June 2022 at Murthly Castle for 95 guests. It was everything that we could have imagined and more. The historic venue itself is truly stunning and unique, it tied in perfectly with our vision of having an outdoor garden party wedding but had the opportunity to use the stunning chapel and indoor halls if Scotland decided to be Scotland and rain in June…. It didn’t!
    It was such a pleasure having Thomas the owners support before the day, helping to coordinate suppliers the week of the wedding, which was extremely helpful for a stressed bride and on the day was on hand to ensure the day ran smoothly from a distance. Initially, our wedding had some early set-backs and a change of date happened due to the pandemic, but Thomas was very understanding and accommodating and supported us fully in our endeavours to get things back-on-track despite a postponement and lots of moving parts in suppliers. The day itself went seamlessly and was relaxed. Thomas was on hand to deal with any issues and truly was a great support to all. Our guests commented on what a beautiful venue and a hidden gem Murthly was. The gardens especially gave us room to utilise lots of different areas and everyone had a fantastic time. Thanks again to Thomas.

    Thank you for such a glowing review, Yvonne D! I loved every minute of your wedding day and it was a pleasure to make sure that everything ran smoothly. I hope you had a wonderful honeymoon.

    The most beautiful chapel I've EVER seen.

    I can't recommend Murthly Estate enough as a wedding venue.

    From the very first time I was in contact with Thomas back in January 2020, we felt in safe hands. Throughout the chaos (and many new dates!) of the pandemic he was extraordinarily responsive, flexible and supportive, and Murthly is the most beautiful location for a wedding. Thomas gave lots of ideas and advice and you always felt he was on hand if you needed him, but he was also extremely relaxed and welcoming - at no point did we feel like we were just another wedding at the venue.

    We held the reception back at my husband's family home, so just used the chapel for our wedding ceremony but would happily have held the entire day there - the gardens are stunning and the castle interiors are amazing as well. We comfortably fitted 110 guests into the main body of the chapel. (Truly, the photos of the chapel don't do it justice - it is absolutely breathtaking). Everyone who came has commented on just what an incredible, special place it is and we feel very lucky to have got married there.

    If you're looking for a wedding venue in Perthshire, look no further than Murthly Estate - Thomas made the planning process so un-stressful, and it really is the most special, beautiful place to get married.

    Murthly Estate's reply:

    HI Anna, what a lovely review - thank you so much. I enjoyed discussing everything with you in the lead-up to your wedding and being on hand on the day. So glad it finally happened after all the delays. With best wishes for a very happy marriage!
