Dundonald Castle is a unique Ayrshire wedding venue which boasts stunning views of central Ayrshire, the mountains of the Scottish Highlands and the Firth of Clyde from Arran to Jura. Dundonald’s 14th-century tower-house castle offers a truly magical setting for your special day.

A 14th-century tower house castle atop a least 3,500 years of local history. Say ‘I do’ within its stone walls beneath a stunning 650-year-old barrel-vaulted ceiling. The optimal acoustics allows each of your guests to hear your vows (no mics needed!). Outside, you’ll find spectacular views of central Ayrshire, the mountains of the Scottish Highlands, and the Firth of Clyde from Arran to Jura. The castle was once home to Scottish King Robert II and a medieval royal court, adding a unique touch to the spirit of the venue.

Enjoy an intimate wedding ceremony in the castle’s Laigh Hall, which can host up to 60 guests. Perfect for those looking for a rustic, romantic setting.

The castle is conveniently located in the Ayrshire region, just 30 minutes from Glasgow and various hotel accommodations.

Hosting your ceremony with us is a great way to celebrate love whilst also giving back to the community. Dundonald Castle is run on a daily basis by our small community heritage charity (Friends of Dundonald Castle SCIO (SC031541). Wedding ceremonies that support local community charities are becoming increasingly popular as couples seek to give back on their special day.

At Dundonald Castle, we like to keep things local and can suggest local businesses and suppliers in the area to help make your day even more special. This helps to keep the carbon footprint of your special day low whilst supporting small businesses and stimulating the local economy.

Our wedding coordinator at Dundonald Castle was a true star. They listened to our vision and made it a reality, creating a day that we will cherish forever. Their calm and reassuring presence throughout the planning process made everything so much easier, and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience… Their prompt and efficient responses to all our questions and requests made the planning process so easy and stress-free. On the day of the wedding, everything went off without a hitch, and we couldn’t have been happier with the service we received. Thank you so much!


Dundonald Castle is picturesque, unique and intimate providing the perfect setting for your fairy-tale wedding. All of the staff are so passionate about what they do ensuring that your day is perfect. The wedding coordinator Lauren is fantastic at looking after her couples, we were in constant communication on the lead up to the wedding, all questions were answered clearly and promptly and all requests were met. On the day itself, everything looked exactly as we had envisioned it and the ceremony ran smoothly, all staff were on hand to meet our guests every need. Our wedding at Dundonald Castle was a dream come true.


Thank you for the very kind reception my husband Hugh and I received from yourself and all of the staff at Dundonald Castle when we came to conduct the wedding of **** & **** on **** August. All of your team could not have been more helpful and everyone had a fantastic afternoon. The castle was stunning and well prepared for Covid restrictions, the weather was beautiful, the staff extremely helpful. We could not have asked for a better wedding venue with stunning landscapes, relaxed atmosphere, even had a flyby with the Red Arrows just before the ceremony began.
Thank you all once again for helping to make Euan & Emma’s wedding day so memorable.
Take care all and stay safe.

May & Hugh Hill,
May Hill Scottish Humanists
