Venue Review: Macdonald Crutherland House

Macdonald Crutherland House

The Crutherland is another venue where the Jiggers perform a lot.


It’s just by East Kilbride, south-east of Glasgow, and has 37 acres of countryside around it.

Quirky Features

Built in 1705 as a manor-house, there are lovely gardens for wedding photographs, and the rooms and bar area are all very comfortable.

What makes it a good venue?

Plenty of options and venue spaces available to suit the requirements for your celebrations from large to small. It’s very good for parking. As a venue, it doesn’t feel pretentious, just a simple, attractive venue that does things right.

Our Impressions

A very spacious ballroom with a roomy dance-floor perfect for ceilidh dancing. We also love it for it’s easy-access load in! You can’t always expect that 18th century architects would have thought about the poor ceilidh band loading in for a wedding 3 centuries later, but at least they got it right with this place 😉
