Stirling is a popular place to get married and it’s no wonder why. The stunning scenery makes for a perfect backdrop to your special day.

Mountainside marriage

The highest mountains in Scotland are known as Munros, named after Sir Hugh T. Munro who in 1891 surveyed all the country's mountains above 3000 feet (914.4 metres) and produced his Tables which catalogued 236 peaks that he deemed to be individual mountains with 'sufficient separation' between each other. Over the years there have been several revisions to Munro's original listing, the latest being in September 2009. Currently, there are 283 Munros and a further 227 'Tops'. These mountains are often popular to get married close to.

These mountains provide some of the most spectacular and challenging walks in Scotland in spring, summer and autumn. In winter, hillwalkers should only tackle these peaks, if they have the additional experience, equipment and fitness required for winter ascents. If you plan to visit the hills in winter, log on to the Mountaineering Council of Scotland Winter Safety pages. They make for ideal locations for wedding pictures, and make a perfect backdrop for your day.
