Thainstone House is surrounded with idyllic parkland and woodland.  Right from the main entrance, there is a feeling of space and tranquility meaning that Thainstone offers a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, or as a backdrop for a great corporate event encapsulating the outdoors.  The parkland and manicured gardens also make Thainstone House a wedding contender for any bride looking for a traditional and grand house with plenty of room for an outside ceremony or bucks fizz and canapés on the lawn.

Parking is ample and free of charge at Thainstone House, which means that there is not only space for a quiet stroll in the parkland, but the practicality ensuring our guests can arrive stress free.    

 

Enjoy exclusive private hire of Thainstone House on your special day.  This is an unique and intimate wedding venue without the restricting packages to go with.  The house is only 15 miles from Aberdeen Airport, making it an agreeable traditional wedding venue in Scotland.  An exclusive use wedding at Thainstone House means that you have complete privacy and with doors closed to any other guests for the duration of your wedding. Additionally, ‘exclusive use' means that you can use any area within the house as part of the celebrations.

Any bridal party who would like to take over Thainstone exclusively will also recieve use of all bedrooms at a special accommodation rates.

To hire Thainstone exclusively, we charge a facility hire charge which covers the period from 11am on the wedding day until 11am the next day, and this means that there will only be your guests within the house during the time period stated. Exclusive weddings are subject to availability and seasonality.
