A wedding at Glen Tanar is uniquely special. Think stately elegance and modern luxury, with a generous helping of authentic Highland heritage and breathtaking scenery on the side. Small or extravagant, a civil or religious ceremony, you'll have all the romance of the Scottish Highlands in a single setting.

Widely regarded as one of Scotland’s finest wedding venues, the magnificent Victorian Ballroom at Glen Tanar has hosted celebrations for over a century. Built by Glen Tanar's original founder in 1869 our unique Ballroom provides a spectacular space for every stage of your wedding.

From its vaulted ceiling adorned with over 700 antlers, to its original oak floors, the Ballroom is airy, atmospheric and spacious. With space to seat up to 160 guests, the Ballroom boasts a roaring open fire, a beautiful grand piano and excellent acoustics, while the lawns outside are a pleasing space for drinks receptions and garden games during Spring and Summer weddings.

Luxury accommodation can be provided in up to 9 luxury self catering holiday cottages on the estate, sleeping from 2 to 11 persons, meaning wedding guests can absorb themselves in your special day and stay close by.

From your first visit here, our experienced wedding professionals will work with you to ensure your Glen Tanar wedding is everything you could have hoped for, and even more.

Meetings & Conferences
With a choice of two unique venues, Glen Tanar is well equipped to meet the needs of the corporate market. Our tranquil surroundings lend a relaxed atmosphere you won't find in a city centre venue, perfect for greater concentration and productivity.

The Coats Room is the ideal choice for smaller meetings and training days, with room to seat 12 people in a boardroom format, 25 in a seminar format and up to 20 for a dinner. Our Victorian Ballroom is well suited to larger conferences and seminars, with space to accommodate 160 seated guests.

Private Functions
From corporate banquets and charity balls to private parties and family celebrations, Glen Tanar is a versatile choice for a function of any size, offering two distinct venues that contrast in both character and size.

Our Coats Room can seat 20 people for a dinner, and is well suited to smaller functions, such as exclusive parties and family gatherings. With a reputation as one of Scotland's finest wedding venues, our Victorian Ballroom is a reliable choice for large events, comfortably accommodating up to 160 seated guests. The Ballroom has hosted many a memorable charity ball and fun-filled ceilidh in its time, and delivers regal atmosphere and grandeur by the bucket-load, perfect for wowing everyone from corporate guests to family friends.

Outdoor Events
The snow-fed rivers and soaring Scots pines of Glen Tanar are the perfect playground for team building exercises and staff away days. Where better to bond with new colleagues and fire imaginations than in the great outdoors, in stunning Highland scenery and unspoilt natural wilderness?

This same stunning scenery makes the ideal frame for product launches and demonstrations, offering unrivalled backdrops and the evocative sounds of nature, for photography, audio and video content.

Our wide open, accessible spaces work well for family fun days, so if you’re planning an outdoor reunion or get together with friends, get in touch to see how we can help. From barbecues and garden games to picnics and treasure hunts, the sky is the limit at Glen Tanar.

We welcome large-scale outdoor events - the Illuminator half marathon trail race takes place on the estate in October, and we frequently host other large events.
