Originally a fortified Castle tower, Logie Country House was built in the 1670s then extensively modified and extended in the 1700s.
In its heyday, it was the center piece of a 7542 acre estate that dates back to 1492. Today it sits in a more modest 130 acres, having been extensively restored in 2009, following a devastating fire in 1975 that left much of the house in ruin.
The remarkable renovation project has seen Logie Country House transformed to an exceptionally high standard of fixtures and fittings, elevating the ruin to a luxury Castle.
Now a popular venue for weddings in the North-East of Scotland, Logie Country House is the perfect Scottish Castle Wedding Venue for brides looking to make their fairytale come to life.
Logie Elphinstone House is 16 miles west of Aberdeen, in the Royal Burgh of Inverurie and was built in the 1670s on estate lands purchased by Laurence Elphinstone in 1492. Originally a castle, extensive modifications took place during the 17th and 18th centuries, to give the magnificent house, set in its own estate, that you see today.
The house currently sits in 130 acres that include ancient woodland filled with wild flowers, which are carpeted with snowdrops, daffodils and bluebells as the seasons change. Three standing stones dating back thousands of years, carved with weathered Pictish symbols can be found near the Ballroom and are listed as an ancient monument.
