I had never been to Glenfinnan House Hotel before although was I quite familiar with the area, so when someone who had attended a wedding there described how wonderful it was, we had a hunch we were on to a winner! The location speaks for itself, Loch Sheil has to be one of, if not the most beautiful loch in Scotland, but I only needed to step foot into the hotel itself and I knew instantly that this was the place I wanted to have my wedding (it was the first and last venue we looked at). Manja and Duncan make a great team; the food was fabulous, the first night we ate in the bar and everyone enjoyed their meal, the wedding menu was also big hit, especially the decadent chocolate dessert! Manja was more than gracious in dealing with the slightly neurotic bride and her wedding planning expertise are first class. My wedding at Glenfinnan far exceeded any expectations I had and my husband and I, still, one year later, can't get over how amazing it was, even the weather was perfect. We stayed in the Jacobite Suite which was great, lovely fourposter bed, huge jacuzzi bath and plenty of room for the bride to get ready, wonderful view of the loch and the snow peaked Ben Nevis! We were hoping to spend our first anniversary there but some inconsiderate couple have decided to get married that same weekend! :o) If you are considering getting married at Glenfinnan I can't recommend it highly enough, the whole package makes for a truly, magical setting.
