Megginch Castle, the heart of the Case of Gowrie in central Perthshire, is the happy family home of the Drummonds and has been since 1661.
Each generation has brought something new to the Castle; a beech tree avenue to commemorate the fallen at Culloden, a Yew crown to celebrate Queen Victoria’s coronation and now the full renovation of the old Ballroom and Camelia House creating the perfect backdrop for couples to take their vows
Enfolded by the peace of this rural oasis with sheep and horses grazing quietly in the ancient parkland, the Ballroom looks out to one side over the 18th century cobbled gothic courtyard, with its unique pagoda doocot, and to the other over the formal Castle gardens where the Camelia House allows the perfect romantic and beautiful setting for your ceremony – with just the sound of the fountains and birdsong outside.
For religious ceremonies there is the charming small secluded family chapel in the wooded grounds, where the current generation of the family were married.
Or on sunny days some may want to venture out amongst the gnarled old apple and pear trees in the heritage orchard to take their vows – or perhaps overlooking the Tea Plantation within the ancient walls of the kitchen garden.
But as the sun goes down everything changes! With the Castle’s west façade and courtyard glowing gently in the background, Let the Party Begin!
Turn on the music, the latest in LED lighting and truly celebrate your most special day!
Up until now the Castle has only been used for family weddings, but since the refurbishment of the Ballroom and Camelia House, the Castle is also now available for the occasional guest use too.
