From their website...


Garvock House Hotel stands handsomely in an elevated position overlooking historic Dunfermline.

Set amidst lush gardens, it marries the convenience of a town centre location with the peaceful feel of a countryside retreat.

The 200-year-old house has elegantly restored original features and contemporary twists of chic styling which make it a unique choice for weddings and meetings, special family occasions or informal lunches with friends.

Step through the pillared doorway to enjoy the warmth of a family-run hotel renowned for its generous hospitality. Unwind in restaurants where Garvock’s chefs use only the freshest seasonal ingredients and serve cuisine widely acclaimed as the finest in West Fife. And prolong your relaxation with an overnight stay in one of 26 bedrooms, all different in style and character yet equally inviting.

Whatever you’re looking for in a hotel, Garvock has it all.


From a photography point of view Garvock house is terrific. A beautiful Georgian building set amongst easy to utilise gardens but with a wee slightly different option just nearby? For a wedding photographer that's ideal.


Garvock House Hotel sits less than a mile from the centre of Dunfermline.


Take exit 3 from the M90 North and follow Halbeath Road until Dunfermline Football club passes on the right hand side. At the min-roundabout turn left and then immediately right. The hotel will then be signposted on the right.

I'm not a videographer but this will give you a wee look at the hotel exterior and the gardens. You can see what the gardens will look like without the snow below!

Venue Details

I'm a huge fan of Garvock House Hotel. It has that crucial blend of being a very professionally run venue but still feeling like a small family business. The gardens are a matter of seconds from the patio area so incredibly easy to pop away for a few minutes for photographs. There is enough variety to satisfy any photographer and venue is light at night for the more creative images.


I like to take couples down to a nearby path for some pics as well as taking advantage of the garden areas. The ceremony room is well lit and spacious. If it's raining there is an option to use the main dining room which has a large bay window, though obviously I don't know if thats the case for every wedding.
