Boclair House – Boutique Hotel & Wedding Venue in Glasgow

Today I am thrilled to spotlight on Boclair House Hotel, a  beautiful new Glasgow Wedding Venue opening in a few short weeks.

The House, a Grade B Listed building is fronted by landscaped garden grounds which are a local landmark and a favourite spot for wedding photographs.

The doors of Boclair House Hotel in Bearsden will open on March 31 2016.

The hotel will get off to a busy start, with the first wedding taking place in April 2016 and a further 67 weddings and special occasions booked, up until end of 2017.

The building is tudor gothic in style, with a castellated tower and a series of impressive archways creating a covered walkway reminiscent of Italian cloisters.

The building was constructed in 1890, commissioned by three Buchanan sisters of Bellfield.

It was called the Buchanan Retreat and provided accommodation for poorer members of the Buchanan clan in their declining year.

Latterly, it became a home for elderly gentlemen until acquired by the Burgh of Bearsden and opened as the Municipal Buildings by Princess Margaret and Lord Snowdon in 1962.

Most recently the building was used as an office by East Dunbartonshire Council.
