    Kilchrenan, Argyll

Ardanaiseig is a nineteenth-century Country Manor House Hotel in the Western Highlands, Scotland, built on the unspoilt shores of Loch Awe and surrounded by the wildly romantic scenery of Ben Cruachan and untouched woodland.

Whether you arrive by horse-drawn carriage or touch down on the loch in a sea plane, Ardanaiseig will work carefully with you on the details of your day. For your ceremony, you have the freedom of the full 120 acres of landscaped grounds and wooded gardens, including a unique Greek style amphitheatre down by the loch, where guest seating is cut into the natural landscape. So if you wish to sip champagne with your guests on the lawn, or erect a marquee for your wedding breakfast, the hotel will happily accommodate it. Of course, you do not have to get married at Ardanaiseig; Kilchrenan Parish Church is a quaint and beautiful building, just four miles away. It was built in 1770 but the site has been home to a church since the twelfth century. Alternatively, exchange vows in the stately Drawing Room, framed by huge bay windows with Highlands views, or in our Library Bar.

A mouth-watering gourmet wedding breakfast is yours in the loch-side restaurant, where you will experience the award-winning talents of young creative chef Colin Cairns. For accommodating your guests, there are seventeen individually-designed and luxuriously-appointed bedrooms, plus the two bed Rose Cottage on the grounds. Newlyweds can expect a special night in The Boatshed, a chic glass-fronted suite on the edge of Loch Awe with a mezzanine-level bedroom looking right across the glassy waters.

Thank you so much for making our wedding just as we wanted it. We absolutely loved our stay at Ardanaiseig and cannot fault a single thing. The hotel and surroundings could not have been more perfect and the food and fabulous service from yourselves and all other members of staff couldn’t have been better! Thank you for making our special day perfect!

Once again thank you for doing such a fabulous job organising everything during the last couple of weeks before the wedding. Your calm professional manner and reassurances were invaluable. Nothing was too much trouble and I knew I could contact you any time and receive a quick response. From the moment we arrived at Ardanaiseig you managed to make ourselves and our guests feel ‘at home’. We received many comments throughout the weekend about how helpful you were and so lovely to deal with. Comments we were happy to agree with! Our whole wedding weekend was totally how we imagined it would be and that is because of you and the rest of the Ardanaiseig staff. Every little detail was covered. The drawing room looked superb with the seat covers, the canapés were delicious and the meal exceeded expectations. Everyone was talking about it for days afterwards. Some of our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been too!

We married at Ardanaiseig last Tuesday and were blown away with everything. The hotel, location and grounds were breathtaking and all of the staff could not do enough for us – our time there was absolutely perfect. We were so well looked after: everything was organised and the staff ensured that we remained stress free throughout our stay. It was such a shame to leave and, after such an amazing time, we are already planning when our next holiday there will be! Thank you is not enough to express the gratitude we have towards such dedicated, professional and friendly staff who made our wedding day very special indeed.
