Highland venue Glen Tanar unveils lochside ceremonies

Set within the Cairngorms National Park, the venue now has three spots where couples can tie the knot: the historic ballroom, the atmospheric St Lesmos Chapel and the banks of the estate’s private loch

Award-winning Glen Tanar has long been on many a couple’s radar – it’s got the magnificent Victorian ballroom, fabulous Highland setting and on-site accommodation to thank for that – but with the launch of lochside ceremonies, it’s bound to get some new fans too. “I’m so delighted to be able to offer our couples yet another beautiful location to say ‘I do’,” shares Aoibhinn Martin, Glen Tanar Estate’s wedding co-ordinator. Just keep your fingers crossed the weather plays ball!

The Glen Tanar Estate sits on an impressive 25,000 acres on the eastern edge of the Cairngorms National Park, and has a variety of on-site activities, stunning scenery and plenty of wildlife. The Ballroom can hold up to 160 people for those looking for a bigger do, but it can happily accommodate smaller celebrations too, with micro wedding packages starting from £2,400. Something for everyone, then!
