Ardanaiseig Hotel - Wedding Venue Spotlight

Part two of my spotlight on wedding venues that I am a preferred supplier to keeps us in the west of Scotland at the wonderful Ardanaiseig Hotel, by the banks of Loch Awe.

Nestled off the beaten track inland from Oban, this lovely, gorgeous, splendid, relaxing country house hotel is a fabulous venue for your wedding day.

Ardanaiseig is situated on the banks of Loch Awe, from Glasgow head west on the A82 along Loch Lomond side and keep going until you come to Crianlarich, turn left onto the A85 and follow the signs for Oban until you come to Taynuilt.

Look for the signs to Kilchrenan and turn left and keep going for around 10 miles through Kilchrenan until you come to the Ardanaiseig Hotel, it is around 85 miles and takes approx two hours fifteen minutes. From Edinburgh head toward Stirling turn onto the A84 and keep heading west through Callendar, Crainlarich until you get to Taynuilt and then follow the same directions as before. It's around 120 miles and takes approx three hours.

Ardanaiseig has 16 individually designed bedrooms and a gorgeous renovated boathouse that stands by a little pier over looking the water, there are local guest houses in the area that could help accommodate further guests should you be planning a larger wedding. The dining room can seat up to 50 for dinner or 70 for a buffet, for larger weddings a marquee can be erected in the gardens.

The hotel holds a civil license so you can have your ceremony at the hotel, either in the main drawing room or in the gardens, a purpose built amphitheatre has been created on the loch side that offers a particularly beautiful setting for your ceremony. Oban is not too far away if you wished to organise a church wedding.

The staff led by wedding co-ordinator Anite Goldie, will work with you to create your tailor made wedding day, be it for only the two of you or for over a hundred, Ardaniaseig is a fantastic venue.
