Congratulations are in order for Fife’s Falside Mill, which was recently presented with an award from the Federation of National Builders in recognition of the superb renovation of the old farm steading. “We took on the farm in late 2016, and knew it needed redeveloped as soon as possible: the roof had caved in, and the masonry was starting to crumble and collapse,” comments owner Richard Lumgair.

Not for the faint of heart, this project brought with it many difficulties. However, Richard assures us that in the end, the gamble paid off: “The 18-month project was intense, but ultimately very rewarding, when the final result was on show for the first time. It still gives me such an immense feeling of satisfaction every time I see it!”

The buildings served most of their lives as cattle courts and whilst this savvy pivot to a Pinterest-ready wedding venue has already brought the team at Falside Mill notable successes, they haven’t totally abandoned the property’s agricultural roots; in fact, Richard still works the organic farm surrounding the property.

With the famed Fife coastline close by, this really is a must-see venue for those looking to marry in the countryside. Everybody loves a winner, after all.
