For anyone looking for a wedding venue - please consider this place. We had a few meetings with Mary (the owner) in the months running up to the big day. On each occasion we were armed with questions but we left totally relaxed as everything was answered, and more!
On the day of the wedding itself everything ran like clockwork. Aside from that the chapel and marquee were set out beautifully - more than we could have hoped for. We had a humanist service but the chapel really is a lovely, intimate setting.
And as others have stated elsewhere, the staff were immense. Very friendly but professional at the same time. They treated us and our guests so well and nothing was too much trouble. We even had an issue with kilt socks and they offered to drive to Lanark to pick up a new pair!
Downsides? - None that I can think of at all. If there are then the staff will help you best they can.
We will most definitely be back!
