We came to Fingask last weekend, staying three days in Beech cottage, and attended the wedding on the Saturday.
The whole stay was wonderful, and thanks to the staff the wedding was brilliant.
The atmosphere at Fingask is very special. The grounds are beautiful and quirky, a huge variety of flowers and trees. A dip in the pool gives you a view over the Tay, clears your head and invigorates you. The accommodation is comfortable, well equipped and spacious, which allowed everyone to socialise over the weekend. The wedding room in the castle is romantic and intimate, and the marquee has a great floor for dancing.
The staff and owner went out of their way to do everything they could to create a relaxed and simultaneously celebratory atmosphere.
This is a superb venue.

Really cannot say enough good things about our fantastic week’s stay and wedding at Fingask. What made the entire experience so special, was that virtually all of our wedding guests were able to travel up from England, and stay on site in the delightful surrounding cottages, the Boat House and Sir Stuart’s House. And, by all accounts, each one was brilliant.
The scenery of the entire estate is wonderful… Beyond description. It’s a perfect balance of pristinely maintained gardens and rough terrain - both of which can be explored with complete freedom - our three Labradors (who were made to feel very welcome) had an amazing week with us, and were entirely in their element swimming in lakes, running through woodland and venturing where they wished.
The staff at Fingask are fantastic, most notably, in that you are made to feel as though no request is too much. They are so accommodating, friendly and helpful, it really took away a huge amount of the stress, both on the day, and leading up to. So many of our guests have said how seemless the day was, and whilst some of this was our planning, the chilled out attitude and extremely helpful staff made each different element of the wedding seem effortless. We had absolutely no issues on the day. It ran brilliantly. Particular thanks to Jan who put up with every question and request we threw at her, and was so helpful, not only to us, but to all of our guests throughout their stay and on the wedding day.
I could go on raving about this place, none of us wanted to leave, the entire party had a glum look on check-out day, and we’ve all already been talking about when we can return to enjoy Sir Stuart’s House and the Boat House again. It really is a special place, and I can’t recommend more highly using Fingask as a wedding venue, or just visiting to enjoy everything else this wonderful place has to offer.

We have just returned to Kent after a perfect time at Fingask for one week. We came up for our niece’s wedding and I met you in the ceremony room on Thursday afternoon as I was arranging the flowers for Fridays wedding.
I would like to say how much we enjoyed staying in Rowan Cottage, which was ideal for us. Everything we needed and it was well kitted out. We enjoyed lunch outside one day, walks around the estate and visiting our other members of the family who were staying in Sir Stuarts. What a beautiful place that is to visit too. Looking out onto the lake and the boat house. This was used by the bridal couple on their honeymoon night before they departed for their fortnight in Mauritius.
Being English and partaking in our first Scottish wedding we particularly enjoyed seeing all the kilts, studded jackets and tartans and daggers in the socks. Also the piper piping us all down to the wedding breakfast in the pavilion, which was an ideal venue for lots of lively ceilidh dancing and finishing with Auld Lang Syne.
The views are spectacular from the house and were a feast for the eyes, while we enjoyed champagne and watched the happy couple pose for photos in the topiary and by the fountain.
Thank you for a most memorable week and day of celebrations.
