Planning your Day

The aim of the experienced team is to offer you individual care and attention to detail. Flexibility is the order of the day and there are no set packages; every wedding is organised to suit the requirements of the couple. The experienced service team is readily contactable from 8am to 8pm 7 days a week to promptly answer even the smallest query you may have. The castle has extensive contacts from local singers to firework displays; you can be assured a very memorable day!

The Ceremony

Barcaldine Castle has the appropriate licence to host civil marriages and is firmly established as one of the foremost venues for the celebration of marriage on the West Coast of Scotland. Wedding ceremonies are conducted in the Great Hall, Laird's Parlour (small weddings for up to 10 guests) and by the sundial in the garden.

Often very quiet weddings are hosted at the castle with just the couple present and witnesses can be provided if required. It suits some couples to 'slip away' to the tranquillity of Barcaldine and marry quietly, enjoy a bottle of champagne by the fire and perhaps use the services of a local guide to capture further photo opportunities in the area and then have a celebration party with friends and family at a later date.

The maximum number of seated guests for a wedding ceremony in the castle is 36.

Wedding ceremony facility fees range from £360 to £1,800 and include VAT. Rates are quoted individually and vary according to the number of people in the party, the time of year and duration of stay etc. A full written quotation will be given once we have established your preferences.

The Registrar charges £280 - £312 to conduct a wedding at Barcaldine Castle. The Registrar is booked and paid separately by the couple and can be contacted on 01631 567930 or email
gemma.cummins@argyll-bute.gov.uk. A minimum of 4-6 weeks notice is recommended.

The local Minister makes no charge but a donation to the local churches is welcome and you also need to pay to have the marriage registered. Rev Jeff MacCormick can be contacted on 01631 710364.

The Celebration

The castle is not licensed to sell alcohol and there are limited catering facilities due to the castle's layout and size, however the following options are available:
