Altskeith House Weddings


I often get asked to recommend wedding venues in Scotland. This is part of a growing series of blogs that describe some of my favourite venues for weddings. For each one I've explained why I like them so much, showing examples from weddings that I have photographed at them. This blog features my favourite venue in Scotland for Wedding Photography - Altskeith House, Loch Ard. 

Hopefully the photograph above and the ones that follow will help to demonstrate my reasons for liking Altskeith House on Loch Ard so much. It's not just for the beauty of the house and the stunning scenery that it is set in, but it is also that it is so well run by owners Alison and Yas, who work incredibly hard to make each wedding very special. They have a real talent for photography themselves and are very helpful to me as a photographer. 

Here's a map of the location of Altskeith House on Loch Ard. Visit their website -


I hope you enjoy looking at the photographs of a few of the weddings that I have photographed at Altskeith House, Loch Ard. I've divided the photographs into some of the key sections of the wedding day.

Here are some examples of photography, showing how different couples have added their own touch to the house. 

Bridal Preparations

Now some of my photography of brides preparing for their big day, but first let's see how one groom, along with his best man and ushers decided to prepare for the day.

Next onto the ceremony that can, weather permitting, be held in the wonderful grounds of Altskeith House, Loch Ard. 

Bride & Groom Portraits

Still in the grounds and we are spoilt for choice at Loch Ard for spectacular settings for portraits of the Bride & Groom, including out on Altskeith's House rowing boat on Loch Ard with Ben Lomond in the background.
