About Castle Kennedy and Lochinch Weddings

Castle Kennedy Gardens and Lochinch Castle form part of Stair Estates, a large traditional working estate located in South West Scotland. The Estates also include the private Castle Kennedy Airfield.

Castle Kennedy Gardens extend to 75 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds. They include the romantic ruins of 14th Century Castle Kennedy at one end of the Gardens and the 19th Century Lochinch Castle, home of the Earl and Countess of Stair, at the other. Lochinch Castle is an historic listed building and the grounds have heritage status.

The Castle, its gardens and grounds can be exclusively yours for the day of your dreams when you book your wedding with us.

Whether you are looking for a civil or religious ceremony venue or somewhere to have your champagne reception and wedding breakfast or wish to have it all take place in one location, part or all of the Gardens can be made available for you on your special day.

We are approximately 1 ½ hours by car from Glasgow Prestwick Airport and Dumfries, 2 hours from Glasgow and 2 ½ hours from Edinburgh.
