Scottish law allows couples to marry anywhere, even outdoors, as long as the ceremony is conducted by a religious official, registrar or a non-religious Humanist celebrant. In the rest of the UK weddings have to take place between 8am and 6pm, but not in Scotland. Essentially, Scottish law allows you to get married wherever and whenever you want, with that in mind, here are some amazing and unusual locations and ideas that welcome brides and grooms in Skye & Lochalsh…..
The loch is only accessible by boat from Elgol, or on foot from Sligachan (approximately 7–8 miles distance). It is also possible to walk from Elgol, but one section of the path presents some difficulties for the inexperienced. The northern end of the loch is surrounded by the Black Cuillins, it’s a truly magical place and the most amazing backdrop for photographs with the WOW factor!
Sabhal Mòr Ostaig
An iconic institution that is recognised internationally as a national centre for the Scottish Gaelic Language and Culture. The campus boasts a stunning location by the sea with exceptional facilities, accommodation and catering. There is also an outdoor amphitheatre that seats 200 – the perfect setting for couples looking to take their vows outside.
Dun Beag Broch –
Neist Point –
Neist Point is the most Westerly area on the Isle of Skye with spectacular headland and excellent views out over the Minch to the Western Isles.
