Weddings & Venue Hire

We’re delighted to announce our stunning new wedding and events venue on the West Coast of the Isle of Arran. The Boathouse at Dougarie will be taking bookings from July 2021 and we have been working hard on renovating this beautiful iconic listed building.

The setting of The Boathouse at Dougarie provides the most scenic and glamorous backdrop you could wish for to create your ultimate Scottish Island event.

Weddings or other special events can either be situated at the Boathouse and can be used in association with a marquee should you wish to host a larger event for up to 200 people. The location offers spectacular views over the Kilbrannan Sound towards the Mull of Kintyre and provides a truly romantic setting for any special event.



Exclusive hire of the Boathouse can include accommodation split across Dougarie Estate properties including the luxury House of Machrie and The Towers which in particular would enable the most wonderful picturesque walk down to the Boathouse. Overall you can sleep 35 people across 5 houses if required.

The Boathouse alone would accommodate a wedding of around up to 60-80 people but for larger weddings it can be used in conjunction with a marquee for up to 200 people.

Hire fees for The Boathouse are set at venue only or packages are available.

For those preferring a church ceremony, we have a number of pretty churches located on the Island.
