The Cruin is a rural wedding venue nestled on the banks of Loch Lomand, in the heart of Trossachs National Park in southern Scotland. Less than an hour from Glasgow's vibrant centre, this rustic property offers panoramic views across the lake to Inch Murrin Island and Ben Lomond. In this serene solitude, you and your loved ones can celebrate a shining new chapter surrounded by a friendly atmosphere, fine food, and breathtaking views for miles.

Since opening in 1998, The Cruin has amassed a stellar reputation for its exceptional setting and quality service. This family-owned property boasts a beautiful array of indoor and outdoor event spaces alongside boutique guest lodges. With your exclusive hire, you can create a uniquely personal event against a backdrop of untouched wilds and a lapping shoreline.
