“Hope you are well and we just wanted to drop you a few lines to thank you. Our wedding at Forter Castle on Saturday was everything and more we could have wished for. The sun shone brightly over a stunning venue and it was almost magical. Forter Castle provided the catering and did not let us down with superb cuisine and the castle manager is a credit to you with all her help with our never ending questions. The interior of the castle was also beautiful and everyone commented on the rich tapestry that you woven throughout the rooms with the different fabrics, textures and colours. Your wedding day is always meant to be special but Forter made it extra special and the memories will be treasured for the rest of our lives.”

Derek and Alison Gerrard.


“Thank you for a fabulous setting for our wedding – there is not a thing we would change, it was really perfect. The castle is beautiful the chapel was magical. The food was exquisite and all our communications with you made this wedding  very relaxed and easy to plan.”

Muchas Gracias

“Twelve months ago over many bottles of wine, 6 great friends bemoaned the heat and humidity of Christmas in SE Queensland.  Before long they dreamt of a white Christmas in the Scottish Highlands. Snowmen, sledging, real Christmas tress. Gingerbread, turkey with all the trimmings – the stuff of movies and fairytales. Who would have thought that our Christmas was all this and so much more that we expected. Forter Castle is a truly special place –a  home away from home. Thank you for the opportunity to share this magical part of the world.”
