Weddings

Regarded as one of Scotland’s most beautiful natural woodlands and glen, Kelburn offers you the perfect setting for that memorable day.  It has long been an inspiration for adults and children, an unspoiled haven of beauty and magic. The Castle has an eccentric and homely blend of styles and periods, from the elegant 1700 Drawing Room with sunset island views to the arts and crafts Victorian Dining Room with it’s original William Morris wallpaper.  Kelburn Castle is simply the perfect backdrop to make your event a memorable one.

Alternatively we have our wonderful, newly refurbished PavilionA stand alone, self contained building offering a ‘blank space’ which lends itself ideally to corporate events and wedding receptions alike.  Enjoying break-taking panoramic views of the Firth of Clyde and the islands of Bute, Arran and Cumbrae.  With large sliding glass doors which open out on to a private patio and lawn that offeres the opportunity to alternative catering such as BBQ’s and Hog Roasts.
