Altskeith Country House on Loch Ard is a magical location for a wedding. We are a unique wedding venue in an idyllic setting, with unrivalled magnificent views. Set within the Trossachs National Park with a waterfront location, its own private beach overlooking Loch Ard and with the majestic views towards Ben Lomond its stunning location is ideal to capture creative wedding photos to treasure for a lifetime.

We love weddings of any size. We are able to cater for small weddings during mid week with minimum number of 2 upwards. For larger weddings we can cater up to 90 guests for a formal meal and up to 120 evening guests in the house.

With 10 bedrooms, 8 en suite, 2 share a bathroom and the luxury of a large function room where we can cater up to 90 guests. We feel we have the benefit to offer any style of stay for any number of guests for any special celebration.


We offer weddings as exclusive use so you are able to relax and enjoy your surroundings with family and friends.

Ideally, weather permitting we provide a full wedding day outdoors taking in the stunning views, or alternatively opening the function room doors and taking in the panoramic scenery. Our weddings are fun and relaxed. We love to arrive in the morning of a wedding to find guests staying at the house walking around in their PJs. Its a real homely feel we try to create.

There is a structure and flow to the day but we keep it as relaxed as possible. We are able to adapt should you decide to do something not specifically planned.

Photographs are your lasting memory of your special day and we provide as many opportunities as possible to create some unique and lasting memories. Whether its a photo from our private beach, a quiet moment for the two of you on our boat, or a group shot with Ben Lomond in the background we will provide the support to make this happen.

We love quirky weddings, usual ideas, anything, we will try out best to make it happen. Some of our favourite moments are alternative footwear for the beach, getting married in wellies in the Burn, toasting the speeches with Irn Bru. You name it and we will do out best to make it happen.



Most guests love to take full advantage of the outdoors and hold their drinks reception outside. We have easy access to the house via the conservatory so guests who enjoy to watch the outdoors but prefer to remain inside love to view the day from there.

We have a number of outdoor games to keep your guests entertained whilst you are having your wedding photographs taken.

Along with serving a variety of drinks including homemade lemonade or Cuban mojitos.


Outdoor wedding ceremonies can be held on the beach, under the beech tree, beside the Burn and water feature, in the gardens, inside the function room with the floor to wall doors open enhancing the scenery from the house or for smaller weddings in the living room bay window with views towards Ben Lomond and Loch Ard.

For those wishing to marry in a church there are 3 local churches, 1 with views across water.

Options to have photos on the beach, use of the boat to take in the views from the Loch. We are also able to provide another boat for your photographer and escort them to achieve their ultimate outside wedding photographs.


Whether you are a group of 2 or a party of up to 96 guests we just love a wedding and will treat each day in the same way. For smaller weddings we are able to cater on a non stay basis mid week or why not stay a day or 2 and enjoy the break taking surrounds and relax and unwind.

We are able to specifically design your ideal wedding day to suit your style.

If you are considering just taking off and getting married we would be happy to organise your wedding day. It would be an honour for us to be your witnesses.

You can choose to get married in the bay window of our living room with the log burning stove and candles filling the room, alternatively the gardens, by the burn, waterfall or our beach could provide the perfect backdrop. We are able to also offer photographs as a momento of your special day, along with photo opportunities in our boat on Loch Ard, cutting the cake by the waterfall and the confetti throwing moment, one of our favourite photo opportunities.

You could stay a night or 2 and enjoy the house with a relaxing stay. We can provide a specially designed menu to cater for your special requirements.

For parties up to 22 guests or even a few more with children you could take full use of our dining room with coal fire and Lochside views and hire the house for the day or for a few days and make a your stay even more memorable.


Your evening entertainment can be anything from your own iPod with selection of songs to our recommended DJ, band or ceilidh. Or we just light the fire and play some background music and you all just sit and talk in front of the fire.

We are able to provide a twinkly light dance floor for an additional charge should you wish to use this.


We love nothing more than a good party. For this we created our function room. With floor to ceiling glass doors that open and extend our terrace area with the most breath taking views towards Ben Lomond and Loch Ard, there is no better way to party.

We also have the benefit of a purpose built sail that can be attached to the side of the property and allow for the terrace area to be covered during cooler weather, that brings a separate outdoors entertaining area.

Our function room can cater for up to 96 guests for a formal sit down meal and up to 120 guests for an informal/casual dining experience.

With underfloor heating and solid oak flooring its the perfect environment for dancing and entertainment.

We also are able to provide a twinkly light dance floor for an additional charge.
