Weddings at Loch an Eilein

Loch an Eilein is a stunning location within Rothiemurchus, at the heart of the Cairngorms National Park. Loch an Eilein is ideal for small, intimate weddings for those couples who love Scotland and the outdoors.

The image below shows the view across Loch an Eilein from the shoreline where ceremonies take place. As the loch is such a popular location for walkers, bikers and picnickers we ask that numbers are kept at a maximum of 30 (including bridal party, photographer and piper etc).

Weddings at Loch an Eilein

This is an outside venue and there is no ‘bad weather’ alternative for the ceremony, so it will take place come rain, hail, snow or gales. Please bear this in mind when you come to plan your wedding outfit and also let your guests know to dress accordingly. The location is kept as natural as possible so we don’t permit marquees, tents, seats or confetti for the weddings, however, we can allow the use a small garden style ‘instant’ gazebo for the bride and groom to stand under if they have one.

We make a charge of £450.00 for weddings at Loch an Eilein enabling us to care for this very special part of the Cairngorms. The cost covers one pre-wedding visit to the shoreline of Loch an Eilein, parking for up to 2 cars at the lochside for up to 1 hour, parking for a further 8 cars in Loch an Eilein Car Park for up to 2 hours and a member of staff to be present during the ceremony (this person can also be a witness if required). If you require an additional witness this is charged at £30.00.

It is your responsibility to finalise the legalities with the appropriate Registrar’s Office.
