There are so many options at Cardney Steading in Perthshire that no two weddings here are the same.

You could choose to say your I Dos in the rural woodland or host your reception drinks on the lawn beside the loch. Take the party to the Cattle Shed for an evening of dancing!

If you want somewhere indoors for your ceremony then they have just the place. The Old Mill is a cosy but bright space with lots of original features including stone walls and beams.

End the evening by gathering around the fire pit, a clearing in the woods that’s just made for after-party marshmallow toasting.

4. GG’S YARDGGs Yard wedding venue seating arrangements

Combining sophistication with just the right amount of agricultural charm takes a lot of skill, but the transformation of this 250-year-old steading on the coast of Dumfries is just right.

Perched high up on the hills GG’s Yard’s panoramic views aren’t half bad either. The building is split into carefully considered sections, including a cosy whisky room and a room specifically for the bride and her tribe. You’ll adore the Grand Gallery: the impossibly high beams are crying out for hanging hoop installations and strings of twinkling lights.

There’s plenty of accommodation for you and your guests including the gorgeous snugs on-site. Choose a Hillside snug with uninterrupted views of Fleet Bay.
