PapaKåta Scotland: Some of our most loved Scottish venues
Since the launch of PapaKåta Scotland in January 2017, we have had the pleasure of working in some of the most fabulous locations, seeing our Teepees and Sperry Tents against the backdrop of awe-inspiring Castles, romantic Loch’s and nestled in the most majestic glens.
In this blog post, we’re celebrating our presence in Scotland by profiling some of our favourite Scottish venues. Venues, that we love working with and that we can’t wait to return to for the 2019 wedding and events season.
Loch Lomond Golf Club
This review wouldn’t be complete without including Loch Lomond Golf Club in the edit. We fell in love with Loch Lomond following the beautiful Sperry and Teepee wedding we created for Georgia and Isaac last year. Subsequently, we’ve had the pleasure of working in Loch Lomond on other stunning events and can’t help but think our Sperry Tents and Teepees look at home against this breath-taking backdrop!
The unparalleled tranquillity, unique spirit and global reputation of Loch Lomond Golf Club make this an exclusive one of a kind venue. Set within a 660-acre estate, the imposing Georgian façade of Rossadhu House is the perfect backdrop for any Teepee or Sperry wedding or event.
“Loch Lomond Golf Club is a sanctuary – a home from home where warm, personal service and unpretentious hospitality create lifelong memories for Members their families and their guests.”

The castle, the gardens and the setting at Wardhill embody the Scottish heritage and create the perfect backdrop for our Teepees and Sperry Tents.
