Weddings at Crathes Castle
What could be more romantic than an idyllic Scottish castle with winding staircases, turrets and towers set in manicured grounds with an enchanting walled garden?
Exchange your vows in the Golden Garden with the castle as a backdrop, or in the castle’s Great Hall with views over the walled garden. Afterwards, sip champagne as you enjoy a game of croquet or tour of the castle before being piped to dinner in the newly refurbished Horsemill.
Crathes Castle is a flexible venue for corporate events.
Impress your clients and guests with a gala dinner in the castle’s Great Hall; reward your employees with a family fun day in the grounds; or motivate your team with a morning meeting in The Horsemill followed by an afternoon of team building activities – choose from Country Pursuits, Bushcraft or Go Ape, North-East Scotland’s only high wire treetop adventure course.
