The Setting

Dun Aluinn opened in October 2018, as a Design Led Exclusive Use venue, with a focus for unique tailored stylish weddings. Situated on a private 5.5 acre estate overlooking the lovely Highland town of Aberfeldy.

Owner John says “We love old and Listed buildings in Scotland, that’s our thing! My lovely wife, Susie, is an architect and interior designer and together we have converted some amazing old Listed buildings in Perthshire into beautiful homes, some of which we retain and rent them out as luxury holiday homes. Dun Aluinn is our flagship property and we have put our hearts and soul into it, to make it truly a world class venue. We hope that guests from all over the world will come and experience the unique atmosphere of Dun Aluinn and enjoy the wonderful mountains and lakes of Highland Perthshire on our door step.”

Dun Aluinn will be doing Virtual Show-arounds the week of the 1st June, and if permitted by the Scottish Government, they will be open for viewings with social distancing – please get in touch with the team to discuss in more detail.
