This was one of the most unique and beautiful experiences I have ever had. It was incredibly romantic. There was so much more than I expected and I have never been part of something so beautiful and well thought out.

Couldn't recommend highly enough! We had a wonderful time, enjoyed a delicious dinner (much more than we expected!) and left happy with full bellies ready to explore more of Scotland.

Kacey and James were fantastic from start to finish. We loved every minute of it and would recommend it to any couple. A very intimate and special occasion that we will remember forever.

My mum booked this as an early birthday gift for myself and my husband, and we are so grateful that she did! From the moment we were picked up by James we felt at ease and found ourselves easily chatting away on the drive up to the location. On arrival we were given a choice of drinks and then left to settle for a while until Kacey came out to set up the ceremony. It was such a beautiful ceremony, it truly felt special and something that my husband and I will remember for years to come. James also did a fantastic job taking plenty of photos on my phone which was such a bonus. We were then left with plenty of drinks and delicious food (the soup was absolutely incredible). We were dropped off back at our Airbnb full and happy! My husband and I have already decided we will be returning to the area next year and definitely booking into one of the dinners this amazing family hosts too, and we already can’t wait!
