What better possible location can you imagine than a medieval castle on a rocky promontory beside the sea while looking out to the Scottish Islands?
As far as wedding venues go, Portencross Castle is hard to beat.
For amazing wedding photographs, you can use the Castle surroundings, the Great Hall and, of course, the viewing platform on the roof. You can also use the Castle surroundings just for photographs for a donation to help us maintain the Castle.

Corporate Events

No matter what industry or service you are in, we sometimes need a break from work for training or team building. Portencross Castle and its surroundings are ideal as a setting for your event. 
Rather than the usual corporate hotel, conference suite or meeting room, go off-grid and enjoy the different setting, ambiance and challenge. Just get out your comfort zone for a bit.
