Weddings at Crossbasket Castle

The magnificent castle, manicured gardens and marvellous location makes Crossbasket a truly beautiful setting for a wedding. The castle provides an impressive backdrop to your celebration with versatile facilities that will make your wedding day a joy for you and every one of your guests. We hold a licence that means you may choose to have the wedding ceremony (religious and civil) here as well as the reception.

Exclusively Yours

Crossbasket Castle and grounds can be available as exclusively yours. This will ensure complete privacy and give you and your guests uninterrupted access to the grounds throughout your stay.

Party of up to 12

You can be married in the Lindsay Tower, with drinks in the Kincaid Library or your own private 3rd floor lounge followed by an intimate wedding breakfast in the Lindsay Tower Suite. This is the oldest part of the Castle built in the 16th Century, originally to improve its defensive position. It has been recreated as a fabulous and romantic 4 storey suite served by a sweeping spiral staircase. Perfect for the Bride and Groom.

Room Hire from £495.00 inclusive of the Lindsay Tower Suite
Menus from £60.00 per person

There is also deluxe accommodation available for those of your guests who wish to stay the night.
