Eco-friendly and sustainable

We specialise in planning and delivering celebrations that bring your vision to life, whilst staying true to our eco-friendly ethos. Everything we do has our environment in mind. After all, we get to admire its beauty, so minimising any damage we do to it is our responsibility.

We recycle everything we can and our list of suppliers has been vetted with sustainability in mind. And careful planning means we have very little left-over food. When we do have leftovers, we donate as much as possible and compost the rest. Any disposable items used are always biodegradable and we never use single-use plastic items. We can work with you to guide you on how to make your celebration as eco-friendly as possible too.

We have three spaces to choose from:

Lawn and Decking area – On a gorgeous sunny day, our south-facing lawn is just the spot for a relaxed celebration on our rustic decking. Furthermore, it sits on the edge of the Loch meaning that you and your guests can dine on the picnic benches, enjoying the beautiful surroundings. We can also supply a firepit to toast marshmallows on and help keep warm when night falls. And, if the weather changes, because the venue is exclusively yours, we can quickly turn it around and bring you indoors.

Upstairs – Our space upstairs has a beautiful wooden floor which gives it an elegant but rustic feel. It seats 100 guests, with impressive views over the loch, and can be decorated to suit your style. This room is just perfect for wedding ceremonies and sit-down meals.

Downstairs – We feel this is the perfect place for any celebration with its glass front that affords a 180-degree view of the Loch. A set of double doors open onto the south-facing lawn, so your guest can take in some air and enjoy the loch. This gorgeous room seats 100 guests and offers a beautifully elegant space for celebrating.

Excellent Wedding Venue. The review we’re leaving is mainly focused on Venachar Lochside as our wedding venue, however, we visited many times beforehand for wedding meetings, lunches and drinks. Every visit was special and memorable – the food was always delicious (including the homemade cakes!) and the coffees are excellent. My wife and I can’t think of a better venue to have hosted our wedding than Venachar Lochside. Having heard such great reviews while doing our research years ago, we knew that everything would be amazing: the food, the service and the overall experience. When it came to the wedding day itself, however, everything far exceeded our expectations! Sam, Meghan and the rest of the VL team went well above and beyond to make sure our day was unforgettable – not only for us but for our guests as well.The food was incredible, the setting is beautiful and the staff are all very attentive and enthusiastic.
