12 Dec Good Highland Venues
We’re often asked for advice on great venues in the Highlands and there are so many – we thought it would be an idea to do some blogging…
For weddings we find so many of our bride and grooms just love Achnagairn – this large Mansion House with so many bedrooms is a great ‘House Party Venue’ and the ballroom as a party venue is an absolute winner. This weekend we did another wedding tasting for a couple from Glasgow who, following a Scotland wide search, settled on Achnagairn for their winter wedding – this is a common occurrence. Good Highland Food have had a partnership with the team at Achnagairn for several years and its a winning combination of a great Highland venue and great local food!
Another favourite for Good Highland Food is Bearnock Lodge. This sporting lodge has been restored to a lovely venue for social or business groups to gather or even for small weddings. Good Highland Food have been pleased to provide catering for a variety of these groups – the combination of the venue location at Loch Ness side and Good Highland Food has led to great feedback too!
We do think we know the Highlands well yet we still discover great venues…. in April this year we catered for the wedding of Fiona and Jamie at Tulchan Estate in a lovely Speyside setting – the Good Highland Team thought this venue was great! The beautiful house and marquee set in the landscape of the Cairngorms National Park with a locally sourced menu went down an absolute treat. We knew the guests loved it as we had such great feedback but today we got such a nice note from Jamie and Fiona:
“To Mike and the Team – We just wanted to express our sincere thanks for all your efforts on our wedding day. The meal was incredible and we had nothing but great comments about it. Some people said they felt they were dining out in a fancy restaurant! Jamie and I still talk about how amazing the beef was!! You were all so helpful on the day and in the lead up, always able to answer any of our questions and put us at ease.”
We think this proves that some of the best venues and some of the best of Good Highland Food are a winning combination!
We found another gem this week but are saving this blog for when we have some of the great pictures to add from our photo shoot.
Watch this space and we’ll add pics from this week and keep adding more favourites.
