    Great venue, personal service.

    So pleased we went with the ghillie dhu! The pricing was about on a par with local smart hotels, but the base level for the venue is so beautiful that you don’t need to add in florists or extra design. We hired the hall as is and never felt we needed to add a thing. Our guests are still talking about the ‘wow factor’ of our wedding. I think they suspect we paid a lot more than we did! Kirsty looked after us from day one and even though we were doing some not very straight forward/traditional things they were able to keep everything open for us if we changed our minds. Cannot recommend enough!
