About The BoatHouse at Dougarie

The Boathouse at Dougarie is a wedding venue situated on the Isle of Arran, Scotland. This stunning property is beautifully perched on the west coast of the island and provides couples a tranquil and scenic setting for intimate weddings. This boathouse was originally used as a sporting lodge for the 11th Duke of Hamilton from 1850 onwards. Now owned and operated by many local islanders, this venue has been renovated to the highest of standards. The building flawlessly blends the site’s historical importance with modern-day amenities.

Facilities and Capacity

The Boathouse elegantly looks over the coastline and offers spectacular panoramic views that are mostly untouched by civilisation. The interior of the boathouse is complete with many original features with a contemporary finish, ideal for 21st-century celebrations. The original architecture is said to be influenced by the Duke’s wife, Princess Marie of Baden. These features include deerskins on passage walls, antler door handles, and a large window over the main fireplace. The boathouse can accommodate weddings of up to 80 guests. However, an adjoining marquee can also be used for those wishing to host more family and friends. Summertime festivities can also make use of the rustic outdoor setting with the clean island air gently sweeping the beautiful landscape. Additional facilities at the venue include exclusive use of five houses that can sleep up to 35 altogether. These luxury victorian-style homes have been renovated to include en-suite bedrooms, a full kitchen, living area, dining room, and more. Other homes include the historic towers, the quaint farm cottage, and more.
