The ceremony rooms in Dunoon are based on the ground
floor of Castle House, an imposing building in its own grounds
and enjoying panoramic views over the Firth of Clyde. Built
in the 1820s as a holiday home for Lord Provost Ewing of
Glasgow, it was originally more modestly named Marine Villa
before it was renamed Castle House, reflecting its splendour.
In later years it housed the Tulloch Library, a collection
bequeathed by a local councillor, and is now home to the
Castle House Museum, a rich store of Victorian memorabilia.
Dunoon’s ceremony rooms include private waiting facilities
for bridal parties and are furnished in keeping with the
character of the building.
The larger of the two ceremony rooms can accommodate
the bridal party and 56 guests, while the smaller room,
(the former Provost’s Room), accommodates the bridal party
with a maximum of ten guests.
Floral displays are provided in both rooms but if you prefer
to have fresh flowers, you can arrange this yourself – please
discuss this with your Registrar.
Music can be provided, either from the selection held by
the Registrar, or you can supply a CD of your own choice.
Please make sure your Registrar has this at least two days
before the ceremony.
