@mad815: I’ve never been to the countryside in Scotland, only Glasgow. I would say try the Summer as it can’t half rain there.

@mad815:  You honestly, honestly cannot predict the weather in the UK EVERRRR.  Last year April and May were GORGEOUS, June and the first half of July were OK.  August was awful and it didn’t get better until the middle of September for a month…..  UK weather is a nightmare.  So if it was me, I’d be looking at May or June to hopefully get the best of the weather.  And while you can’t go wrong with rural Scotland, can I just suggest you research the heck out of transfers from the airport to the potenital destination.  Because our roads are really small….  so while it may not look far on GoogleEarth it’s probably longer than you think

What do you mean by local Scottish planner? You can’t have local for a country.

What part of Scotland are you thinking of ? 

What sort of ceremony are you thinking of (I know not legal one but type)?

@mad815:  I’m Scottish and PP are right it’s a big country so you need to maybe narrow down the area you would like, before anyone can give recommendations for a wedding planner.  As others have said the weather can be unpredictable at best altthough Jul/Aug/Sep as usually your best bets for getting at least some sunshine.  There are some gorgeous castle locations though that can be used for weddings, have a look at the below for a few ideas.

The bottom 2 are both obviously near the capital city of Edinburgh and Balgonie Castle is in Fife on the east coast so about a 40 min drive from the capital. 

 It’s worth mentioning that Edinburgh hosts a festival during August which is fantastic but means more expensive hotel rooms and a necessity to book quite far in advance.

Also the Commonwealth Games 2014 are being held in Glasgow (on the west coast) 23 Jul – 03 Aug 14 which I’m sure will bring a lot of visitors to the surrounding areas.

If I can be of anymore help just give me a shout as I love Scotland and am massively proud to come from such a beautiful country.
