Our first venue is in east Argyll & Bute and is located at Luss on the shore of Loch Lomond. It enjoys panoramic views over the loch and the surrounding mountains. It’s located just 24 miles from Glasgow airport. 

The venue’s waterfront location makes it an ideal venue when it comes to outdoor ceremonies. With lovely options for your wedding celebration, such as the floral arch on the terrace looking over the loch for your ceremony, or one of the elegant banqueting suites hosting up to 200 guests, also with lake views. If you are arranging smaller numbers they can accommodate more intimate weddings.

The team will ensure that everything is perfect on the day and the two rosette Chef Brigade will serve fresh and tasty locally selected produce. There’s a spa on site and an array of leisure activities for your guests to enjoy such as boat trips and water sports. There are 48 bedrooms on site and some dog-friendly options.
