Weddings on Loch Ness aboard the Eala Bhan

We would welcome you all onboard and sail down to Urquhart Castle, where we would anchor and you would get married onboard in the shadow of the castle. We would then take you down the loch further for a sail before turning back or turn back and sail (weather dependant) back to Inverness (Dochgarroch).
The trip to Urquhart Castle can take about a couple of hours and during the summer there is a piper in one of the lay-by’s on the road down Loch Ness and we pull over and stop the engines so the bride and groom can be serenaded from the banks of Loch Ness.
As an example, boarding at 12 noon would mean having your wedding ceremony at 2.00pm – 2.30pm, then returning to Dochgarroch to disembark by 5pm.
You can also get married onboard whilst still tied up at Dochgarroch before you go for a sail.

We can put you in touch with a local minister, personal celebrant, photographer, registrars office, bakers, taxi/car hire, jewellers, florists, dress/kilt hire, etc. Just let us know what you are looking for and we will do our very best to help. Ministers fees vary and are payable by you.

Personal services can also be arranged where you can create your own ceremony, in this case fees vary and are payable by you.

Full day charter is required for a wedding and the cost for a full day charter is from £720, if you want something a bit more special then we can arrange a buffet from an extra £10 to £20 per head. Our maximum number is 12.

If accommodation is required our price for B&B; is £28, or Dinner and B&B; for £40 per person. We can accommodate up to 12 guests in 5 cabins (2 x 3 berth and 3 x 2 berth).

Should you require any further information please do not hesitate to let us know.

We ourselves got married onboard in 2000 (that’s us in the photo!) and we can certainly recommend it for a small, unique wedding.

If it is just a reception you are looking for we would be delighted to have you onboard for your celebration.
