Nestled in picturesque countryside just outside Dumfries, Amisfield Tower is set to become one of Scotland’s most exclusive wedding venues.
The team behind the venue has ambitious plans to create a stunning wedding destination, complete with a year-round pavilion for up to 300 guests and the reinstatement of the grand gardens within the walled garden.
According to Will Duncan, the owner of Queensberry Events, “Amisfield Tower is an exclusive use venue. So, you can come here and have your wedding day or you can hire the house for the weekend or the week. The house has got accommodation for up to 20 people and in the walled garden, we are planning to build a big pavilion for events up to 300 people or smaller events.”
