Weddings

We welcome weddings at Craigston – it makes a spectacular venue and for some is just the perfect mix of grand and relaxed.

We look forward to helping create a special day for you and your guests. Ceremonies can be held in the Castle drawing room, and a marquee can be erected in front of the house for your reception. Craigston is also the ideal location to have your wedding photos taken. We have a network of local suppliers (caterers, photographers etc.) who can help you create a magical day.

Please find details of room capacities, fees and extras below. Contact us to discuss on 01888 551 707 or email us at

“We chose Craigston for our honeymoon and could not have had a better trip. We really enjoyed our stay there sampling the local food (including excellent whisky) and visiting the stunning countryside. We were made to feel at home by the family.”
