We've plenty of space for your wedding, as you'll see in our video showing Murthly Estate from the air.


Why Murthly stands out from the rest


Rarity Value - We host only a small number of weddings, to make sure we give you our full attention and keep Murthly special.

Always Exclusive - Murthly Castle is a private home, so the venue is exclusively yours, not only on your wedding day, but also during the set-up period. You're our sole focus.

It's Personal - With a single point of contact, you'll always know who you're talking to, and we'll always be up to speed on your plans. We'll also help you prepare for the big day and ensure it runs smoothly.

We've Got Your Setting - Ceremonies can take place in the Chapel, the Castle, the Walled Garden or the Douglas fir avenue. We can host Christian, humanist and civil ceremonies.

You're in Control - We'll share our extensive experience of local caterers, marquee providers, florists and other suppliers, but the final choice is always yours. We're here to help, not to tell you what to do.

Our previous wedding couples are the best guide to what you can expect at Murthly:


"...It was the perfect day... We booked our ceremony and reception very last minute. Thomas couldn't have been more helpful. We held our ceremony outside in the gardens, so beautiful and peaceful. Thomas helped us with the planning and made sure the day ran smoothly - including helping organise everyone when the registrar was late!

Thank you so much to everyone at Murthly Estate - such happy memories!"

Our Proven Wedding Suppliers


At Murthly, you choose which suppliers you want to provide what you need for your wedding. However, we have plenty of experience of local suppliers and are always happy to give you the benefit of our experience.

We have some fantastic local award-winning caterers, such as BallintaggartGourlayLovEventsSeason Catering and Wilde Thyme, while you'll find that Aran Bakery and the multiple award-winning Taystful make delicious wedding cakes.

If you're need of a marquee, then we have established relationships with Best IntentsGourlay and the more traditional Myreton Marquee Hire. You probably want to decorate your wedding marquee with flowers from Coach House Flowers or Something Special Flowers, both award winners.

If that feels like too much to organise, we also know a couple of really excellent wedding organisers who can manage things for you: Janice at Blue Thistle Weddings and Wendy at Utopia Scotland. They'll also make sure you can treasure your wedding day forever with great photographs and a video. We can recommend Laura at Eilidh Robertson, Nigel at Nigel Lumsden and Wedding Video Services.

Finally, no castle wedding is complete without a piper, and the best-dressed is undoubtedly Ian from Sinclair Pipers, who also boasts a great set of tunes and plenty of bonhomie. If you don't fancy arriving with a piper, perhaps you'd prefer to come with McIndoe Horse Drawn Carriages instead.
