Make your special occasion dining even more memorable by spending it in the delightful ambience of the Buchanan Arms Hotel. We are delighted to cater for funeral teas, christenings, high teas, private lunches, dinners and birthday celebrations, not forgetting the more intimate or grand affairs such as wedding receptions, anniversaries and dinner dances.

Our superb reputation for private and special occasion dining ensures that we pay just as much attention to the quality of the setting - recognising that fine linen, exquisite tableware and excellent service can lift a meal from great to a truly memorable experience.

The Buchanan Arms Hotel is the perfect setting to capture cherished moments, whether it be a celebration, anniversary or special party. We specialise in offering a fine tradition of hospitality, good food and comfort, all uniquely tailored to your specific needs. With a range of rooms, we can cater for small intimate gatherings and much larger celebrations, ensuring that you and your guests receive professional and attentive service so that you can relax and enjoy a truly memorable occasion.


Anniversaries are treasured moments when love and commitment are re-pledged openly with loved ones, family members and close friends. It is a time of remembrances, tenderness and wishful thinking. In short: a time to celebrate.


Think of ‘Birthday Parties’ and we bet you immediately think of kid’s parties with jelly and ice cream. Well, that’s part of it but by no means the full story. Anyone can and should have a birthday party!

We think birthdays should be fun and laughter filled, creating family memories, and be your most important day of the year. To that end, we use our imagination, and help you use yours, to create a party that is as much a gift as any present you or a loved one might receive. Birthday parties at the Buchanan Arms will live long in the memory – until the next one!!


There are certain events in a person's life that are a milestone, and graduation is one of them. So make the very most of your special graduation day with us here at the Buchanan Arms Hotel. Celebrate this momentous occasion with loved ones and friends by joining us for a celebratory lunch or dinner. Enjoy good food and fine wines while celebrating your bright future and years of hard work. Champagne lunch and dinner packages are available – surprisingly!


Christening parties and celebrations are essentially times when family and close friends get together. A party thrown to celebrate this occasion will probably have one of the widest age ranges, from the baby to the grandparents. From afternoon teas and finger buffet ideas to Christening lunch menus, we have a range of catering options to suit all needs.

To view our suites and private dining rooms, do contact us by e-mail or telephone and we’ll be delighted to discuss your requirements.

And from time to time we offer great value residential special occasion packages, including:

  • Two nights accommodation in a Classic double or twin room
  • Champagne on arrival
  • Candlelit dinner for two in the Salmon Leap Restaurant each night
  • Breakfast in bed if you prefer
  • Bouquet of fresh cut flowers
  • Gift certificate offering special rate for anniversary or return stay

So whether you're planning a wedding, honeymoon, anniversary, or birthday party - or a business event - pamper yourself and your guests at the Buchanan Arms, and soak up the tranquillity of the hotel and its delightful Scottish village setting.
