The immaculately restored Knockdow House, unlike many other wedding venues, has been specifically designed as a luxurious Highland retreat, where the ancient customs of generous hospitality and a warm welcome are very much to the fore.

This elegant Scottish mansion house, set in 600-acres of Argyll countryside, is a beautiful location for your wedding. In the house, alongside quiet corners and cosy old fireplaces, we have modern, open, flexible spaces that are perfect for groups and celebrations. The house is packed full of character, history and charm.

Hosting your wedding here provides a unique opportunity for you and your guests to enjoy heritage and luxury, elegantly combined under one roof to create a quintessential home away from home.
Enjoy the best of Scottish hospitality.

Knockdow House is not a wedding factory. We recognise that every bride is unique, as are their dreams for their big day. The venue is just a starting point to those dreams. We can recommend highly experienced and creative service providers who will make your every wish a reality. We are equally delighted to welcome your own chosen suppliers and we will work closely with them to facilitate their role in making your big day the success it deserves to be.

At Knockdow House we only host a limited number of weddings each year. To avoid any disappointment, call us on +44 (0)1369 870 199 or email to discuss your plans in more detail and arrange to view this beautiful house and the opportunities that it affords.

Your Scottish wedding day will be one of the most special days in your life. Allow us to contribute to make it unforgettable and provide wonderful, lasting memories for you and your guests.


Whether you are planning a wedding, a civil ceremony or celebration, imagine having the exclusive use of this historically important country house retreat?

Knockdow House sits within its own 600 acre West Highland estate. We have picture-perfect , manicured lawns, many secret spaces and a number of large water features, including an enchanting small island. All of course provide excellent spots for wonderful wedding pictures.

The views from the front lawns extend towards the Isle of Bute and beyond, Goat Fell on Arran is a most imposing backdrop.

An extensive renovation and restoration project spanning 5 years has brought Knockdow House firmly into the 21st century. Yet the house retains much of its Scottish historical character and now boasts 11 immaculate and spacious, five-star, double bedrooms, each with marble clad en-suites and several ‘private’ sitting rooms for your guests. Each is comfortably and lavishly appointed.
Hiring Knockdow House as your wedding venue offers you a seldom available opportunity to bring your family and friends together in a very relaxed and romantic setting. A real Scottish country house party feel.

Knockdow's honeymoon suite is a beautiful, double aspect room with fabulous view across the Isle of Bute and Arran.

Be it an intimate wedding breakfast for 50 or a ceremony or drinks reception for 150, these can be hosted in the house. Larger gatherings are held in the grounds. The choice of how and where is yours.
All our public entertainment spaces are at ground floor level with accommodation also available on this level.

Wherever possible, we will facilitate even the most unusual Scottish wedding dreams and help you with executing them, from initial inspiration to impeccable organisation

Why not plant a tree to commemorate the occasion or invite your guests to plant a tree? Follow this long tradition that has seen visitors to Knockdow House as far back as the mid 1800’s plant a tree to commemorate their stay and leave behind some of their own history at Knockdow. Watch it grow and flourish for generations to come as you return to celebrate an anniversary.

Getting to us is very straight forward. We are only an hour and a half , door to door, from Glasgow International Airport, straight down the M8 to the ferry terminal where ferries run every 20 mins. See Directions for more details.
