It's taken me a little while to get around to writing about these wedding venues in Scotland, but I can promise, it's worth the wait.

I was looking for something different other than the usual castle or stately home that you find listed for Scottish wedding venues, so I opted for venues that are unique, either in their styling, location or the type of venue they are. Let me know what you think.
The wonderful MrsPandP, a Twitter friend who's a wedding planning in Scotland called Plans and Presents helped me choose some of these venues and so I must say a big thank you to you, Alison. (By the way, she's a must if you're on Twitter and you're into weddings - she is the Queen of weddings!)
For those who love art, then this is a wonderful wedding venue, designed by Mackintosh at the turn of the 20th century, it smacks of the Modern movement (just before Art Deco). Light and airy with a slight opulence about it, it makes a great wedding venue, plus there is plenty of art installations in the grounds for the perfect backdrop to an outdoor reception. Licensed for weddings. Visit House for an Art Lover website
Located on the west coast of Scotland, this remote, tranquil and beautifully designed arts centre is fully licensed and available to hire for exclusive use. The views are amazing and the centre has been designed with modern luxury and peacefulness in mind. The centre sleeps 11 and can host ceremonies for up to 70 guests. Truly stunning. Visit The Crear website.
Located in a grand old building, West is a restaurant, bar and brewery (on-site) with a very modern feel to it. Light, airy and open with plenty of high ceilings, this is a relaxed venue and perfect for those who want a low-key wedding. There's also plenty of beer to try, so if you love beer then this venue in Scotland is for you. It licensed for weddings (and beer too). Vist The West website.
At first when I looked at this venue, I thought it was a little bit tacky, but after having a good look round, you can see that it's got real potential. Grand Central is a fairly new club with a bowling and pool hall. If you're into your nightlife and want a fun reception, then you could have a brilliant time here. Visit Grand Central website
This is one of my favourite wedding venues in Scotland as it's just simply incredible. The venue is set in the middle of Ballencrieff Reservoir and boasts unbelievable 270 degree views across the water, so it feels like you're on a lily pad. It really is an amazing wedding venue. Licensed too and worth checking out. (See top image) Visit The Vu website.
A luxury boutique hotel with a charming and warm industrial feel. There's lots of glass and steel, which is warmed lots of wood and red colours. There's also an amazing rooftop garden, which would be an enviable wedding reception location. This is one of the licensed wedding venues in Scotland. Visit The Glasshouse website.
