Duart Castle offers an exceptional location to get married. The castle is steeped in history being seat of the Clan Maclan for over 600 years and is still the home of Sir Lachlan Maclean, Bt. 28th Chief of the Clan Maclean today. The castle stands proudly on a cliff overlooking the Sound of Mull, Duart enjoys one of the most spectacular positions on the west coast of Scotland.
WEDDING LOCATIONS AT THE CASTLE
We have four places where you can have your wedding ceremony at Duart:
• Outside by the single cannon looking down the Sound of Mull
• In the Banqueting Hall
• In the Sea Room in the Castle
• The Drawing Room
The Banqueting Hall or Great Hall is the largest room in the Castle, accessed by the Sea Room. This room lends itself well to larger weddings and can be set up with seating according to the number of guests attending, to a max of 80, with the remaining guests being required to stand.
THE SEA ROOM
The Sea Room is the access room to the Great Hall. Large windows accommodate the south facing aspect of this room giving the most magnificent views from within the Castle looking down the Sound of Mull and Loch Linnhe.
This room is also licensed for weddings and suits smaller wedding parties up to a maximum of 20 people.
THE DRAWING ROOM
This room is the Chief’s private Drawing Room which is not open to the public and is occasionally available. It is a beautiful room, tastefully decorated located off the Banqueting Hall. It is a much smaller, and a more intimate room lending itself to smaller wedding parties to a maximum of 20 people.
OUTSIDE THE CASTLE
The outdoor wedding venue is by the single cannon, facing up the Sound of Mull. This is truly an amazing location. The Registrar will require you to make a provisional booking for an indoor venue in case of bad weather.
