Weddings at Aberdour Castle

Wedding Ceremonies & Photography

Aberdour Castle interior
In a beautiful location overlooking the Forth Estuary, Aberdour Castle boasts a delightful walled garden with ornate terraces and an unusual beehive-shaped dovecot.

This impressive property is a 12th century fortified residence which was extended by the Douglases over hundreds of years.

Incorporating splendid features such as a fine painted ceiling, the castle provides a gracious setting for wedding ceremonies and the castle gardens are a perennial favourite for wedding photography.
