Getting there

 

Wedding Venue

Glentruim Estate
Newtonmore, Inverness-shire
Scotland,  PH20 1BE


By bus

We will organise a bus…

by car

From the south, take the A9 north from Perth. Approximately 6 miles north of Dalwhinnie there is a section of dual carriageway.  Towards the end of it you will start to see signs for “Invernahaven Caravan Site” on the left side of the road.  You will then see a brown road sign for “Laggan/Glentruim”. Exit left at this sign, onto a single track road. (If you pass the large brown sign for Ralia Gateway Centre or the slip road for Newtonmore then you have gone too far north!)

Follow this road down the hill and across the bridge, over the River Truim, passing the entrance to the Caravan Site on the right.  Carry on up the hill for 300 metres until you see the black iron entrance gates to the estate on the right hand side. Enter here and follow the driveway up through the estate. Gate Lodge is just inside the gates on the left side. Glentruim Castle is approximately 400 metres along the driveway.

Things to do

Royal Mile  Kenny Lam_1848791035.jpg

Visit the Castle & the Royal Mile

No brainer! Check out all of the small alleys (“closes”) going off the Royal Mile and stop into the Jolly Judge or The Salt Horse for a quick pint. Head along Victoria Street for some shopping & a snack, or walk to The Edinburgh Larder or Holyrood 9A for lunch.

Walk up Calton Hill

A small hill at the end of Princes Street, where everyone takes that famous photo of Edinburgh. There are stunning views at the top and some Neo Classical columns that are fun to climb. Get a pint at Cafe Royal or The Guilford Arms after.

Walk along the Water of Leith

A lovely walk that takes you from the entrance in Stockbridge, where you’ll find a ton of amazing restaurants and cafes, to the entrance at Dean’s Village in the West End where you can get coffee or a snack at The Painted Rooster (which replaced our favourite cafe).

Visit the galleries

The National Portrait Gallery is a fantastic, and can be combined with lunch or coffee on Broughton Street. The National Gallery on The Mound is worth a visit too.

Climb Arthur’s Seat

An extinct volcano in the middle of the city. It’s an easy 30 minute walk up and the views are stunning!

Visit the Modern Art Museums

We always end up going here at least once every time we visit. The buildings and grounds are lovely, and can be combined with a walk along the Water Of Leith. It’s quite a walk back to the city centre, so Uber might come in handy.

Eat

Scran & Scallie

Great restaurant for posh pub food, owned by Tom Kitchin. Our favourite place for sit-down Scottish food! You might want to book ahead because it’s so popular.

chez-jules-3.jpg

Chez Jules

Gillian’s favourite place. It’s a good-value French bistro with a great atmosphere, although it can get preeeetttyyy noisy on a busy evening. Try their steak tartare!

Mother India

Scotland is known for its amazing (and spicy) Indian food.

Soderberg

Matt’s favourite cinnamon rolls in Edinburgh. That’s high praise. They also have excellent coffee and Scandi-style sandwiches.

Drink

Artisan Roast

Fantastic coffee and a comfy space, though a bit small! And JK Rowling did not write Harry Potter there.

Brewlab

Really delicious coffee near the University, and new Old Town. This is the site of Matt and Gill’s first date!
