We attended a wedding reception here on Easter Saturday. The grounds are magnificent and the castle makes the perfect backdrop. In the walled garden we were greeted by a phalanx of waiters with trays of bubbly, but soft drinks were also available. There were plenty of tables and chairs, our glasses were kept well topped up and some delicious canapés...

A couple of weeks ago I attended my aunties wedding here, and I truly loved everything's about it. I drove up on the Friday from Sheffield and arrived just as the evening bbq was being served, so perfect timing after a 5hr drive if you ask me. The bbq was great with plenty of food put out and the bar...

Just back after having a great weekend at Guthrie Castle for Nick & Rebecca's wedding. Everything about the venue was tremendous and Craig and his staff (from our arrival) excelled in providing all the guests with a great day for the wedding. We all wished we could have spent more time there to enjoy the grounds and views.

We attended a wedding here and quite frankly it was superb. The castle and grounds provided the most fantastic scene for the bride and groom's perfect day. Even the sun shone and the service was held outside in the gardens. The meal was first class and the waiters polite, well organised and friendly. One little boy fell asleep, and they...

We were lucky enough to attend a family wedding over three days at this wonderful venue. We were welcomed by Craig and his staff after driving down the private road to the impressive castle and the owners collection of cars in the drive. Everyone was allocated their rooms or cottages very quickly and we all went off to explore our...

We booked this venue to renew our wedding vows. The setting is magical. The rooms spacious and comfortable. The food excellent and the service and attention to ourselves and our guests outstanding. This is a fairy tale place that every guest said would stay with then forever. I can't recommend this place highly enough

When you pass through the ancient portico gates to enter the estate, you will experience a first-rate, perfectly manicured sight so beautiful you'll think you're on a Hollywood movie set. Lush walled gardens, a notoriously difficult 9-hole golf course, 500+ year hold towers, walls, and fortifications. It allows a glimpse into the past with various structures, some long since fallen...

I recently spent 10 nights at the castle (sleeping inside the castle for 7 nights) and words cannot really describe how amazing it was. I was onsite for a conference and then birthday party. From start to finish the staff were very accommodating and friendly, its a well oiled machine. They were even able to accommodate my tricky vegetarian diet...

I recent attended the castle seminar with Dan Pena. The experience was amazing! The suite that I stayed at was the brass suite. The room was cozy with old Scottish charm to it. It was more than what I expected. The adjoining living space had a fireplace. The staff really made me feel at home. The food was amazing! Mr....

“I stayed in the Brass Suite and it was actually 4 rooms, not 1! Massive bedroom, sitting room, foyer, bathroom, closet. I did not see any of the other rooms so I can't comment, but you can't go wrong with Brass.”
