Scotland’s Highlands and lochs get the majority of credit for the country’s famous beauty, but there are plenty of other gorgeous regions that are worth a mention too!

The wedding marquee at Dalswinton Estate is the most idyllic setting for your Dumfries and Galloway celebrations. Set in the beautiful walled garden by the loch, the outdoor covered reception terrace and large panoramic clear walls and roofs of the marquee allows guests feel part of beauty of the surrounding estate. With lots of beautiful spots for an outdoor ceremony or use of the little red church, it’s a truly flexible venue.

Working with marquee suppliers and event planners Queensberry Events, you can dream big with your décor and lighting so that the marquee truly reflects you as a couple. Hire a prosecco van for the drinks reception, use the venue’s recommended caterers or enjoy an al-fresco hog roast at your reception. The possibilities are endless!
