Could anyone recommend a wedding planner in the Highlands area or a possible reception venue close to Eilean Donan Castle? My fiancée and I are American and hoping to be wed at the castle next fall. I've emailed one local wedding planner, but s/he wanted to move the ceremony to another castle despite our preference for Eilean Donan. I saw the Clachan Bar as a possible reception venue, but have never been and don't know if it would work.
We're planning a small (less than 50 people), informal event and were hoping to walk from the castle to the reception. We're not very interested in flowers, a cake, or anything very traditional. We'd ideally like a place to drink & dine with some friends and family before everyone turns in for the night. Does anyone have any insights or recommendations?
