My Husband and I had our wedding at Achnagairn House a month ago. We had an absolutely amazing day which well exceeded our expectations.
The house is a fantastic venue (we loved it even when we first saw it after a massive wedding had just left). I wanted something different, relaxed and fun. We looked at many hotels but often they are very fixed on how the day is run and we wanted some flexibility. Achnagairn is run on an exclusive use basis, as such it really is yours for 2 days, and the staff are very unobtrusive making everything extremely relaxed and friendly.
We arrived to find a pristine house and the staff were always around thoughout our 2 days of exclusive use incase we had any problems. They also provide a general tidy of downstairs on the first morning- this is more like a deep clean as after our first night of BBQ and drinks the place was spotless in the morning! Our wedding day was brilliant, helped by the fact that the sun was out! The gardens are so well maintained and out guests spent a lot of time wandering them. The ballroom was fantastic for a party with great acoustics, and there is scope to do things your own way which in our case involved cocktails!
Our friends and family who stayed were blown away by some of the rooms (especially the bathrooms) and felt it was exceptionally good value for money. The honeymoon suite was so lovely and is great for getting ready in. Our friends with young babies loved the fact that they had sole use of a guest kitchen and that they could stay in the house and relax.
We were a little nervous about using this as our wedding venue (as we had to organise caterers/bar etc however I believe the house now can supply all of this!), however the level of staffing and the professionalism of everyone involved was truly brilliant and our day went so smoothly. If you are looking for something different, relaxed, and fun then choose Achnagairn, you won't regret it! We did and have been told it was the best wedding ever!! We would not hesitate in recommending it to others for similar events.
Excellent wedding and conference venue. I stayed there for a conference in January 2009. Beautiful restored Scottish Mansion, the rooms are all individually decorated and very big and luxurious. Hospitality and food excellent! Look forward to return again for a conference or wedding.
