If you intend to have Wedding Photography at Dunnottar Castle and surrounding cliffs, this must be booked with Destination Weddings Scotland. Although there is no charge for photography on the surrounding cliffs, precedence is given to booked weddings who may also be taking photographs and so it is necessary to book to confirm there will be no issue with your planned timings.
