Standing proudly on Atholl Estates, in the heart of Highland Perthshire, Blair Castle is the perfect fairytale wedding venue with one of the most spectacular ballrooms and Georgian state rooms in the country.
Blair Castle offers a fascinating range of historic interiors, contemporary spaces and spectacular gardens providing an ideal venue for your memorable occasion. Each couple is encouraged to bring their own personal touch to create a bespoke and individual experience.
Whether you’re planning a civil or religious wedding ceremony, a large wedding or intimate gathering, Blair Castle has a wide selection of rooms and spaces from which to choose. From the intimate historic Library to the State Dining Room, the grand Scots-Baronial Victorian Ballroom to the stunning gardens, our rooms and outdoor spaces allow you to design a wedding that is memorable for your family and guests.
Designed by the Scottish architect David Bryce, the Ballroom was completed in 1876. Truly Scottish in style and setting, the enchanting Ballroom gives a sense of scale, history and occasion for a wedding for up to 220 guests.
Created for the 7th Duke of Atholl’s private army, the Atholl Highlanders, and is still used today for their annual ball. The ballroom has excellent acoustics, a large stage, two open fires, a fine dance floor and a state-of-the-art lighting system; all the ingredients for the perfect party.
Wedding ceremonies for up to 300 guests
Dining for 60 – 220 guests
23.6 x 10.7 metres, plus stage
Your guests can proceed up a red carpet and through one of the finest baronial entrance halls in Scotland before heading down the dramatic long corridor and into the ballroom.
Beyond the Ballroom and accessible via a ‘secret’ door, the Banvie Hall is a contemporary option for a ceremony or reception. More often than not, the Banvie Hall provides an extension to the Ballroom for your welcome reception, a bar or a great location for cutting your cake. The glass wall frontage provides a view of the magnificent grounds of the castle and of the surrounding hills.
