The Setting

This is truly a magical place and one of the most iconic venues in Scotland. Whichever way you look, you will be blown away by the stunning scenery and your proximity to nature.

The Boathouse at Dougarie is an exclusive use destination wedding venue on the Isle of Arran. Celebrate your wedding day surrounded by spectacular landscapes and your own beach in a beautiful historic building, built originally for the Dukes of Hamilton to entertain their guests.

This understated, affordable luxury, is a relaxed atmosphere and the perfect setting for a wedding. The location is remote and secluded enough to feel worlds away from the hustle and bustle of real life but easily accessible for your guests given its proximity to Glasgow and all its associated transport links.

The Vibe

The Boathouse at Dougarie retains its stunning original features from when it was built in the middle of the 1800s with its curved roofs, exposed beams and incredible views across the Kilbrannan Sound to the Mull of Kintyre.

There are two main areas to hold your reception, giving you the flexibility to create the wedding of your choice. They have a number of floorplans being developed to assist you with helping to plan your day come rain or shine.

There are numerous outdoor locations which can be used for the ceremony (weather permitting) and a large lawn area where a marquee can be located should you require more capacity. In the winter months they are able to make the Boathouse into a warm, cosy and romantic place with plenty of candles and twinkly lights.

Although the Boathouse comfortably fits 70 for a sit-down wedding breakfast, it can fit 100 for a more informal style wedding or if you want more evening guests. Alternatively you could have many more with an additional marquee giving you the flexibility to plan your wedding your way.
