The Ideal Scottish Castle for your Big Day
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 centerpiece of a 7542-acre estate that dates back to 1492. Today it sits in a more modest 130 acres, having been extensively restored in 2006, 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 warm and cozy luxury Castle complete with open fires and underfloor heating.
Now a popular destination wedding venue for guests from around the world, Logie Country House is the perfect exclusive use Scottish Castle Wedding Venue for brides and grooms looking to make their fairytale come to life.

Logie’s historic title is derived from the country estate in which it is set. Originally named “Logie Elphinstone House” and based 16 miles west of Aberdeen in the Royal Burgh of Inverurie, it 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, building 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 wildflowers, which are carpeted with snowdrops, daffodils and bluebells as the seasons change. Three standing stones dating back thousands of years, adorned with weathered Pictish symbols can be found near the Ballroom and are listed as a Scottish ancient monument.

Outside the courtyard are deer and otters and birds and flowers and trees and buzzards and red squirrels and kestrels and butterflies and bees and rabbits and salmon and trout and cows and sheep and cats and dogs…
