Llamas are Looking for Love at Dundas Castle


The team at five star wedding venue, Dundas Castle, is looking for a male llama to extend its current herd.

The Castle, which has been home to llamas for over ten years, currently has five females and is in need of a male to meet increasing demand for the presence of the animals at events.

Louise Andrew, General Manager at Dundas Castle explains: “Llamas have become an unlikely wedding trend in recent years, so our lovely ladies are a very popular addition to the Castle offering.

Many couples choose to be photographed with our furry friends, and we’re seeing increasing numbers of llama themed weddings!”

The five lady llamas are called: Adelita, Conchita, Mel, Natasha and Rosie and as some of them are reaching their prime, the team at Dundas is keen to bring in a male to try to increase the group numbers.

Keeper, Jamie Paterson adds: “Our llamas are curious creatures, and just love watching over our guests as they arrive at Dundas. We all enjoy having them in their field at the front of the Castle and we’re very excited about the prospect of hearing the patter of tiny llama hooves.

“The ideal suitor should have long eyelashes, soft hair and good manners (minimal spitting at the Castle, please!), but all applications will be considered.”

Dundas Castle is a popular venue for luxury weddings, corporate getaways, incentives and teambuilding days and is only 10 minutes’ drive from Edinburgh International Airport. With facilities which can cater for up to 200 in the Pavilion and larger groups on the spreading lawns of the estate, plus a well-equipped private boardroom and accommodation in 17 beautiful bedrooms, Dundas Castle is a flexible option for any event.
