If you are searching for the perfect wedding venue for a 2018 wedding, why not think about trying something a bit different? How about taking your vows on the shore of a stunning Scottish loch or in the grounds of a spacious country house?
Wedding on the Shore of Loch Awe
Situated on Scotland’s west coast, Achnacarron Boathouse is located in lovely, secluded grounds on the shore of Loch Awe, one of the most beautiful and most frequently photographed of all of the Scottish lochs.
The owners of the boathouse were married there themselves and they loved the property so much that they decided to buy it and offer other couples the same kind of relaxed, intimate celebration that they spent so long looking for. They had dreamed of a small wedding by the water’s edge and after months of looking at grand venues that catered for huge numbers of guests at enormous cost, they found their ideal destination in Achnacarron Boathouse.
The scenery is breathtaking and is the perfect dramatic and romantic backdrop for any wedding or civil ceremony. There’s a private pier that’s wonderful for photos, plus a decked seating area overlooking the water where you may be lucky enough to spot some of the area’s abundant local wildlife.
There is no extra charge for using the venue, although the property, which sleeps 6 people, has to be booked for at least a one week stay. The owners have great local contacts who can take care of everything from flowers, catering, cakes and hair and beauty to photographers, pipers and musicians.
It is a wonderful way for a couple to take their vows and is the perfect solution for anyone looking for a smaller, more intimate celebration that can be tailored to their own special requirements (maximum 6 guests).
