What Fingask Provides
For your wedding, or event
The Mother of one bride to be, phoned me up at 1am on the morning of her daughters’ wedding to ask whether we had a knife suitable for cutting the cake. She was apologetic but firm!
We list below the things that Fingask provides. Our basic policy is not to charge extras. There may be things not on the list that we provide, but please wait until a more conventional time to phone us.

The pavilion is wheelchair user friendly, as is the ground floor of the castle. Sadly there is no lift in the castle so wheelchair users are not able without help to access the Long Gallery on the 1st floor or the bridal suite on the 2nd floor of the castle.
Mallory Reid is our events manager and she is usually in charge of all the weddings, and the Fingask bar staff, she is the person whom the bridal party would approach throughout the wedding day. Just occasionally Mallory is allowed time off, in which case Ross Dunbar, who is the head of the events office team, will be in charge of the wedding. Andrew Threipland the owner can sometimes be seen in the background, doing as he says, the jobs no one else wants to do.
