The advantage of marrying at a well-established venue, as opposed to a blank-canvas spot, is the potential for it to become somewhere to return to celebrate anniversaries and special occasions. Life, after all, doesn’t grind to a halt after you tie the knot.
The National Trust for Scotland, however, is taking this idea even further. If you wed at one of its venues, not only can you rediscover a place saturated with memories, but you can also visit any other property or attraction the organisation looks after, now that it is offering complimentary membership to each newlywed couple.
Valid for one year from your wedding date and valued at £100, spend your weekends with your other half trailing historic manor homes, such as Pollok House, Culzean Castle and Fyvie Castle, sprawling grounds and art collections and support the vital work the National Trust for Scotland carries out, maintaining the country’s most precious assets.
“We’re with you from the start of your journey together,” says the NTS’s Rebecca Sloan. “We hope you’ll be with us every step of the way in helping to protect Scotland’s natural and cultural heritage for present and future generations to enjoy.”
