Carrick Castle Estate

Stunning eco-chic estate lying in the rugged Scottish landscape

Who are we...

Welcome to Carrick Castle Estate, the romantic Scottish wedding venue in the heart of Scotland’s Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. My name is Hannah and I am the wedding specialist here to guide you through your wedding journey from the day you book your venue to the moment you say ‘I do’ overlooking the picturesque Loch Goil.

Scotland’s allure lies in its rugged landscapes, historic charm, and the warmth of its people, and Carrick Castle Estate provides all of this whilst protecting the earth.

Take your pick from the rustic DIY barn with ceremony locations including overlooking the loch, or opt for a small and intimate affair in Craigard, the latest addition to the venue offering with its castle-like exterior and private chapel.

Weddings here are not just ceremonies; they’re adventures into the heart of love, set against the most picturesque backdrops nature can offer. Take a drive on the estate with your photographer in our 1950’s Defender to capture the exquisite views.

Sleeping up to 46 of your nearest and dearest in our luxury and eco-friendly accommodation gives you peace of mind your VIP guests are nearby. Enjoy hill walks, wild swims, kayaking, self-drive boat hire all followed by the exclusive-use spa facilities – this is a destination venue with a difference.

The ethos of Carrick Castle Estate is to provide a carbon capture land and a sustainable wedding venue based on zero carbon principles.

The Estate

  • The hot water and heating of the lodge come entirely from ground source heat pumps.
  • Electricity is generated by 2 x 12 kilowatt solar panels.

  1. “We got married in April and we could not have asked for a more amazing, enchanting and beautiful location for our wedding. The setting of this venue is absolutely stunning, perfect for getting married outdoors with views over the loch. The barn is lovely and perfect for a DIY wedding which is what we did. Hannah and Cheryl were fantastic and always close by if you needed anything at all. They were super flexible and so so so helpful with helping us with logistics, planning the day and answering our (my) tireless amount of questions! The location is stunning, the team is incredible and the lodge is luxurious. Honestly made for our perfect wedding weekend for both us and our guests, it couldn’t have been more special.” – Sarah and Stuart, April 2023


“We had a fantastic time planning our wedding and hosting at Carrick castle. The team are incredibly friendly and we loved that we could do whatever we wanted to the event space (Within reason!). The team were very responsive particularly as the big day approached and were keen to help make the day run smoothly. The space itself is just absolutely gorgeous and all of our friends and family were in awe at the incredible scenery. We could not recommend this venue highly enough!” – Laura and Sam, August 2022

“We had our heart set on Carrick Castle Estate the moment we discovered it in our search for a rustic venue in Scotland. We were not disappointed when we viewed the estate with its stunning location and incredible accommodation. Hannah was extremely supportive during the whole process and simplified everything we needed to do. Hannah was very easy to approach and always had a speedy response and good advice based on previous experiences. We were able to tailor the weekend to be exactly what we wanted it to be, and then the sun came out and made it magical! We always planned on having an outdoors wedding and Carrick Castle Estate made that happen – we can’t wait to come back one day!” – Claire and Paul, June 2022
