Luxury country house wedding venue

Hillhouse is one of Southwest Scotland's most exclusive country house wedding venues. We are different from most wedding venues as we limit the number of weddings at Hillhouse in order to maintain extremely high standards.

We also offer complete privacy; you and your guests will have exclusive use of Hillhouse and its wonderful grounds. Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and the wedding venue is a vital part of the experience.

Our beautiful Georgian house makes the ideal backdrop to your perfect day. Hillhouse house and gardens have a secluded, intimate atmosphere that makes every wedding feel uniquely personal.

Smaller, more intimate weddings of up to 36 people can be held within the house in our magnificent Ballroom and Reception rooms. Larger weddings for up to 300 guests are held within the wonderful Walled Garden in a bespoke luxury marquee that is designed specifically to each and every individual's taste and requirements.

Why we are different

Weddings are all about memories, and at Hillhouse you can be sure they'll be perfect. Hillhouse has been a private country house for over 300 years, and still remains privately owned. We feel that this is what enables us to provide such intimate and private surroundings that create such a wonderful atmosphere for your wedding day.

There's no doubt about it, even the most simple weddings need plenty of planning. Our wedding manager can guide you through the complicated and often stressful process of organising a wedding, from numbers to budgets and everything in between.

At Hillhouse we use a select range of caterers, photographers, florists, marquee firms, bands and wine suppliers, all of whom have been tried and tested and who meet the very high standards we require here. We understand how important it is for you to have the wedding of your dreams.

Have your own ideas?

Let us know about any ideas you have for the big day, we'll do our very best to make them happen. We pride ourselves on our flexibility.
