A wedding at Glen Tanar is uniquely special. Think stately elegance and modern luxury, with a generous helping of authentic Highland heritage and breathtaking scenery on the side. Small or extravagant, a civil or religious ceremony, you'll have all the romance of the Scottish Highlands in a single setting.

Widely regarded as one of Scotland’s finest wedding venues, the magnificent Victorian Ballroom at Glen Tanar has hosted celebrations for over a century. Built by Glen Tanar's original founder in 1869, and originally the music room of Glen Tanar House, our unique Ballroom provides a spectacular space for every stage of your wedding.

From its vaulted ceiling adorned with over 700 antlers, to its original oak floors, the Ballroom is airy, atmospheric and spacious. With space to seat up to 160 guests, the Ballroom boasts a roaring open fire, a beautiful grand piano and excellent acoustics, while the lawns outside are a pleasing space for drinks receptions and garden games during Spring and Summer weddings.

Luxury accommodation can be provided in up to 9 luxury self catering holiday cottages on the estate, sleeping from 2 to 11 persons, meaning wedding guests can absorb themselves in your special day and stay close by.

Where do we start? We are so grateful for the way you ran Paisley and Darren’s wedding. It was faultless. A perfect day to enjoy and remember. You were friendly, efficient, discreet and most of all we had total confidence in you to take care of everything and everybody. It felt like we were dealing with a friend rather than a business. We appreciate all your hard work. Thank you.

Thank you from Neil and myself for your help planning and organising Kirsty and Finn’s wedding on 27th August 2016. The day ran like clockwork and it was everything that Kirsty and Finn had imagined. We have had so many comments from guests saying what a wonderful wedding it was. The back drop to the Ballroom is so stunning and the Ballroom itself is beautiful. Thank you again, we couldn’t have managed without you.
