Music and Entertainment
We are very experienced at organising traditional Scottish ceilidh dances in the hotel so simply ask us if you wish us to help organise the music for the evening. Music can range from traditional Scottish ceilidh with fiddles, accordians, singing and guitars to live pipers, classical music or more popular modern music.
The ceilidh can be timed to start towards the end of the Banquet and can last for as long or as short as you wish.
Fireworks can still provide the perfect ending to the day. We can organise a small or large display for you off the pier to entertain your guests. The display must take place no later than 10.30 pm and please note that in the summer it is still light at this time so the display will not be so effective.
Table flowers will be provided for the Friday night, in-keeping with the hotel. Table decorations or any type of bouquet or flower arrangement can be provided at cost.
A table plan will be provided to suit your wishes. We can organise either square tables or long tables depending on your desired configuration. We are happy to print up menus, place cards and table plan in our house-style for you at no extra cost. If you would prefer to organise this yourselves, please let us know.
Wedding Cake and Stand
We can provide a cake stand and knife at no extra cost. If you would like us to organise a cake, please contact us for further details, we require at least 12 weeks notice for a formal wedding cake, prices start from £150.00.
We are able to recommend a photographer to capture your special day. For prices and information please contact us. We are able to recommend photographers depending on the style you are looking for and your budget.

In order to make your wedding that little bit extra special you may like to consider the following options:
Treat yourself to a relaxing massage treatment. If you are arriving a few days early with close friends and family, we can help you relax and unwind in perfect luxury in advance of the big day. We offer a full range of highly skilled professional massage and treatments in the comfort of your own room. So if you are feeling a little tense in the run up to the wedding day, or need some much needed relaxation afterwards, we are more than happy to arrange a treatment from our extensive list on offer.
Outdoor activities for you and your guests. We can arrange all sorts of fun activities for your Scottish wedding. From fast boat trips around the Isle of Lismore or more energetic sea kayaking on the loch, to mountain biking or sedate guided walks around the neighbouring countryside, our team will ensure everyone has a great time.
Order one of our packed hampers filled with smoked salmon sandwiches, champagne, strawberries and chocolates, then take off after the ceremony, find a quiet romantic spot and sit and enjoy the landscape around The Pierhouse.
The Pierhouse is one of the most idyllic and scenic locations in the Highlands of Scotland, and an ideal venue for an intimate wedding celebration for you and your guests. Combined with our location and a professional team of dedicated staff your wedding will be a dream come true. Whatever type of wedding you are looking for we will ensure that you and all your guests will be well looked after.
