Rossie on the Earn is a family-run wedding venue in Forgandenny, Perthshire, Scotland. This charming estate, conveniently located within an hour’s drive of Edinburgh, St Andrews, Dundee, and Glasgow, was built by the Oliphant family, who lived at Rossie for almost 300 years. The property was purchased in the late 1970s by David and Judy Nichol, who were determined to restore the estate to its former glory. They even managed to add a few new touches of their own along the way. The 30-acre Alice in Wonderland themed garden, which features the Mad Hatter and a 10-foot yew teapot, stands as a particular testament to Judy’s unwavering energy and limitless enthusiasm. Today, their daughter Leonie and her husband, Matt, are proud to continue their work. Leonie and Matt can’t wait to welcome you to Rossie in the spring of 2022.
