The walls are lined with impressive paintings depicting some of the most important episodes of Scotland’s rich history. The European room can host up to 70 guests with the couple standing and overlooks the quadrangle courtyard to the south.

Couples wishing to have their legal ceremony in Scotland and have a large blessing/non-legal ceremony with friends and family abroad
