LOVE CREAR for all your Crear Wedding ideas & inspiration 

Everything you & your guests need for planning your perfect Scottish wedding day

Your destination Crear Wedding

As a destination wedding venue, Crear is remote & secluded, yet intimate & welcoming to all who travel from far & wide. Crear has now hosted hundreds of weddings with many couples entrusting us from overseas who have never visited prior to their big day.

We completely understand the need for a few well laid plans in the early stages to ensure that everything runs smoothly for both you & your guests & are here to help every step of the way.



Accommodation in the surrounding area for all your guests to suit every budget & personal requirement from luxury hotels to camping on the beach

Where your guests stay

Crear sleeps twelve guests in six individual en-suite rooms. Who stays at Crear is a very individual decision for every couple as everyone has their own unique family dynamics. Hosting alternative house parties in the surrounding area at Barnlongart House & Keepers Cottage (sleeping eighteen in total) or Achaglacha House (sleeping sixteen) is a great way to ensure that everyone feels included. 

There is plenty of accommodation in the surrounding area to suit every budget & personal requirement & we will work with you directly to create your own personal list to recommend to your guests.
