Picture perfect in Glen Tanar


Many couples have their wedding photos after the ceremony, while guests mingle with a glass of fizz. Photographers really are spoilt for choice at Glen Tanar - as well as a stunning Victorian Ballroom, our Highland scenery makes a beautiful outdoor backdrop to your day.

Grab a breath of fresh air and take a newlywed wander across our large, lawn and through ancient Scots pines, while your photographer captures the moment on camera.

From the lawn lined with silver birches and rhododendrons, a stroll to the south west takes you down granite steps to a wooden bridge over the Water of Tanar. Follow this across the meadow to the Chapel of St Lesmo, one of many perfect spots for picturesque photos.

Another short walk west takes you to the Trout Loch where a grass-roofed boathouse sits quietly in the background, surrounded by the ever-present Caledonian pines. The historic walled garden of Glen Tanar, a minute’s walk east of the Ballroom, is full of colourful flowers in Spring and Summer, while an orchard with a bench provides another charming photo stop.

We welcome marquees and gazebos, and will work with your choice of marquee provider to ensure a smooth set up, and a magical day for all.
