Birthday party ideas at Venachar Lochside

Are you planning a special birthday party in Scotland? Maybe it’s a milestone birthday, like an 18th, 21st, 40th or 80th! Whatever the occasion, we have the perfect venue for you at Venachar Lochside near Callander. Our gorgeous lochside venue is available for parties and events for up to 100 guests. Offering stunning views from both our indoor and outdoor spaces, this is a party venue with the WOW factor! Venachar Lochside is easily accessible from Stirling, and there are lots of accommodation options nearby. So, here are some birthday party ideas from our unique Scottish venue.

1. Al fresco celebrations

Our south-facing lawn is the perfect spot for an outdoor celebration on a sunny day. Sitting on the edge of the picturesque loch, the views are spectacular.

Partying outside creates a different sort of atmosphere. Guests may feel free to wander around more, enjoy the fresh air and take in the scenery. Here in Scotland, we can take advantage of the long hours of daylight in the summer, as the sun lasts well into the evening. Ask about hiring our roaring fire pit with mallows and sparklers, which is great fun as the sun goes down!

Of course, we can’t predict the weather too far in advance, but rest assured we have just as beautiful indoor options, should you need to use them.

2. A room with a view

Our downstairs event room offers the most wonderful 180-degree view of Loch Venachar through floor-to-ceiling glass. Double doors open out onto the lawn for extra space. Or, if you prefer, our upstairs space has a more rustic feel with wooden floors and it still has the views!

Whether you choose to party indoors or outdoors, our caterers and chefs will create a superb menu for your event. Our canapes and sharing boards are meticulously crafted to taste amazing and look amazing too! Our team will be on hand to assist on the day and make sure all goes to plan.

We offer a range of added extras too, which work great for birthday parties. Such as party favours, flower arrangements, whisky tasting, gin tasting and our cocktail hour.

3. We bring the party to you

Alternatively, if you have another venue in mind, we can bring our catering services to you. We specialise in sharing-style menus, served on boards in the middle of the table. We can create canapes, 3-course banquets and evening buffets.

Our Scotland-wide service includes setup, serving and clearing of all food. We provide the crockery, cutlery, glasses and table linen, and we will also bring along a Master of Ceremonies and Coordinator. They can bring out the cake, light the candles, play music and keep everything running smoothly, so you can concentrate on spending time with your guests.
