Well, the Scottish summer is almost over (this year it was a Wednesday!) and it’s been our busiest ever with up to 5 bookings a week. Always a pleasure and rarely a chore.
Some of the “new” venues for us, which we’ve been itching to play for years, included:
Aswanley, the gorgeous country estate steading conversion near Huntly;
Boturich Castle, with its gorgeous marquee on the banks of Loch Lomond, near Balloch;
Eden Court Theatre, with its great acoustics and grand staircase in The Bishops’ Palace, Inverness;
Burn House, the magnificent Country House Estate near Edzell in Angus, where the staff and “guardians” couldn’t have been more helpful;
Camusdarach Beach near Arisaig on the West Coast – location for many a Hollywood film, including Local Hero;
And quite possibly the most picturesque, fairytale wedding venue in the country – Eilean Donan Castle in Dornie (pictured) on the road to the Skye Bridge. We had the honour of singing at the ceremony here too – that was a real thrill.
These venues are all unique and well worth considering for your wedding dance.
