Perthshire's Exclusive Wedding Venue
Set in extensive landscaped grounds near Dunkeld in Highland Perthshire, Murthly Estate is an award-winning venue comprising Murthly Castle, the Chapel of St. Anthony the Eremite, the Walled Garden and the Douglas fir wood.
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 wood. We have hosted Christian, humanist, hand-fasting 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.
Award-Winning - In 2023 we were the winners of the Hitched Wedding Awards. In 2022, we received a Gold Award certificate from Best of Bridebook Awards for providing couples with excellent service.

Our previous wedding couples are the best guide to what you can expect at Murthly. Here's what Francesca and Kieren had to say after their wedding:
"Our experience at Murthly was absolutely amazing! We had our wedding ceremony and reception at this spectacular venue in May 2021, and the whole experience from the initial booking through to the big day was a complete joy. Our guests are still talking about the venue, and the chapel is breathtaking too!!
Thomas supported us every step of the way, and despite Covid restrictions which meant having to shift plans (and dates!) he was so accommodating, offering advice and support to make sure we had everything we needed. It meant a lot to us to find a venue that was so good at communicating, meeting our needs and keeping everyone safe.
In summary, we would recommend Murthly 100%, we couldn’t have wished for a more beautiful day. Thanks Thomas and the Murthly team!

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. For example ...
We have some fantastic local award-winning caterers, such as Ballintaggart, Gourlay, LovEvents, Season 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 Intent, Gourlay 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. 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.
Our full recommended supplier list is available on booking. Whatever you're looking for, come to us for a recommendation if you need any help.
