Cardross is situated on the fringe of the Scottish Highlands and borders the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park.

Just to the north is the Lake of Menteith, the only Lake in Scotland. Under an hour from Edinburgh, Glasgow and Perth, Cardross is conveniently situated whilst retaining its remote and unique feel.

Cardross offers you a blank canvas to create a perfect event, from an intimate dinner in the house, to exclusive use of any area within Cardross’ ancient oak tree filled parkland.

The house is located close to a number of local churches. Dunblane Cathedral is also less than 30 minutes away. A variety of accommodation is on and close to the estate.

We work with some of the event providers (e.g. caterers, marquees) in Scotland, who help put together a personalised, smooth running and beautiful event that will take advantage of the magnificent location.

Opening Times

Cardross is not open to the public but is available for weddings, accomodation, corporate hire and filming.
