The FREE Brochure was 4 weeks late AND we had to pay £1.50 postage on our end because they didn’t pay for postage. They forgot about our viewing, no one was at reception, or anywhere in fact. We phoned after about 20 minutes of waiting and wandering to find someone and was answered with a blunt ‘hello’ and a ‘ok I’ll be up.’ The lady who ‘showed’ us round, was cold, awkward and didn’t really give us any information at all! She merely showed us every single accommodation room, and showed us 2 rooms for the ceremony itself, I asked a few questions on layout and she was very dismissive and didn’t seem to think the layout could be changed at all - even though it was only a few chairs!! We fell in love with Auchen online and really wanted to get married here but since making contact with them, I can’t think of anywhere worse we could get married. I’m so disappointed, and my partner very rightly said - if they can’t even give us a good viewing, how on earth can they handle our wedding without it going wrong?!

Wow! We just got married at this beautiful venue in Scotland on the 11th September and what a weekend! We had 3 wonderful nights at Auchen and everyone has commented on what a beautiful venue it is ... the food was amazing everything we ate there from breakfast, the 3 course wedding meal and the BBQ option on the Friday night and the 2 buffet selections for the Sunday afternoon were phenomenal. Every single staff member we met was attentive, professional, friendly, polite and helpful they are all a real credit to the castle! It was very clean to a very high standard. Sarah the manger is amazing she dealt with every email and phone call from me with a professional but friendly and helpful attitude ... nothing was too much trouble. Our Wedding there was just perfect, the room set up was even better than we imagined, the cake looked beautiful and tasted just as good as it looked, the flowers were gorgeous our hair and make up artists were fantastic as was our photographer and videographer, our piper, Bonnie the owl & the falconry and last but certainly not least our DJ. We could not fault this venue or Gretna Wedding Bureau who it was booked through and who recommended everyone who made our wedding so amazing. We wouldn't change a single thing and would do it all again tomorrow! Big thanks to all the staff that made our wedding extra special, we had an absolute blast and think upu are all amazing!!

My daughter married here on 7.9.21, after lots of delays, cancellations and disappointment due to Covid but all of that was more than made up for by the wonderful experience we all had at Auchen Castle. 1. The setting is stunning. 2. The building is beautiful, full of history and very comfortable. 3. The staff were amazing. Thank you. 4. The food was excellent and very generous. 5. Everything was extremely good value for money. I couldn't recommend it highly enough. I would love to stay there again.

We can't thank everyone at Auchen Castle for making our wedding such a special day on Tuesday. The staff were all extremely professional but so lovely and nothing was too much trouble. The food was delicious and extremely generous portions. The accommodation is beautiful and the Skye Suite which we stayed in is just stunning. We had the best day we could ask for and never felt any pressure from the hotel when it came to financial decisions which is refreshing as I work in the wedding industry and know that alot of venues push to make as much money as possible- Auchen Castle just seemed to want us to have a good day! I will recommend to everyone. Thank you again for the lovely memories!

Me and My wife had an amazing wedding on the 27th August 2021 We couldn't say in words how much we loved the whole experience and can't thank the staff enough. From the moment we arrived everything was sorted for us including a surprise gift I had sent for my wifes room. On the wedding day everything was managed brilliantly and our guests thought it was the best experience. The hair and makeup arrived on time and went above an beyond for my wife ensuring that she had everything that she needed including helping her into her dress and shoes. Callum the piper was amazing and made the whole experience magical. Sarah and the whole team especially Simon were excellent in making our day perfect and keeping spirits light and stress free. the food was lovely especially the square sausage :) in the evening we had a DJ (Mark) who made the night real fun and joined in with us to enjoy our evening. the flowers were spectacular and finished off what was a fairytale experience. The photographers did an amazing job and are making it really hard to choose 45 photos for the album as they were all lovely. All we can say is that if you are after a wedding that is stress free, amazingly run and super special you don't have to look further than Auchen Castle.
