Dundas Castle is one of Scotland’s most beautiful and historic castles and it is one of the top 5 Star Exclusive Use venues in Britain. Unlike a hotel, the Castle is booked in its entirety for a wide variety of events – weddings, conferences, business meetings, incentive travel group visits, golfing holidays, private dinner parties, launch parties and receptions.
“Our event was carefully engineered by your event manager, Jennifer, who made the planning appear seamless. Final checks a few days before filled me with confidence that everything was in place and all of the suppliers were singing from the same hymn sheet. Jennifer entrusted Fleur as the manager for the weekend who also maintained a very high standard of professionalism and ensured our every need was met.'”
“The whole weekend was just a dream come true and we have received so many thank you cards from our guests saying it was a weekend like no other they had ever experienced and one they shall treasure for the rest of their lives. All of this was made possible by the truly professional team at Dundas, working their hardest to make sure each and every one of us felt special and looked after.”
Thank you for an unforgettable experience! I am confident that I speak for all when I say that this was a lifetime high-light. Your service was impeccable, the food was exquisite and the scenery was unbelievable
The difference with Dundas Castle is not only the venue but the staff; they are professional, attentive and discreet. They are always there to help you but also just enough in the background to not impose on you or your event. In summary, the test of a great event is not only the venue but the staff and the big question "would you use us again"? With Dundas Castle, there would most definitely be a resounding YES!
The brief included providing gluten free food for our Chairman and I was delighted when it was suggested that the entire event would be ‘gluten free’ which impressed our Chairman immensely. The food was excellent and the staff were outstanding in their level of service, courtesy and helpfulness. Our event manager was extremely diligent with the detail and responded to any query promptly and effectively. It is a glorious venue in a beautiful setting and I only wish we had more opportunities to use Dundas Castle as it ticks every box for Genius Foods.
Our wedding was the most amazing day ever. The castle is absolutely stunning and guests couldn't believe how perfect the venue was. Our wedding coordinators were excellent on the day and made it all run like a dream. We couldn't recommend this venue enough for a classy dream wedding.
An enormous thank you to you and your team for all your hard work in making yesterday run seamlessly. What a superb service you gave us. You have been so accommodating of all our requests throughout the organisation and on the day itself. It made the whole thing a much easier task for us knowing there was such a professional and capable team dealing with us. Thank you so very much.
Having never seen the castle beyond internet photos and being located in the USA, we new we were taking a risk having the wedding at Dundas Castle. There was no need to worry; the event was perfect. The team blew me and our guests away with their organization skills, quick feedback, kindness, and ability to foresee potential difficulties. They truly enjoy what they do and it shows in every detail. We could not have asked for better.
The venue certainly combines the old and the new with the beautiful castle and grounds, and the flexibility the pavilion gives to staging larger events, backed by a truly professional team, excellent catering and event management.
“Last February we started looking for a venue for the Bentley Partners' meeting. We needed somewhere where we could be guaranteed first class service, but also a place which had an unusual or unique feel to it. I was unfamiliar with Dundas Castle but the enquiry process indicated that they were customer focused and the outcome was that we were able to have an extremely successful event in a venue which offered my clients an extraordinary experience.”
We cannot thank you all enough for making our weekend at the Castle so wonderful. ALL our friends have commented on the amazingly helpful, charming team who were looking after us. The catering was faultless and simply delicious. You made me feel like a Princess. Ridiculous I had to wait till I was 50 to be so spoilt! Shame I'm so happily married as it would be lovely to have a wedding at Dundas. I shall speak to Graham and ask if he's willing to re-marry me so we can book Dundas again... In the meantime, thank you all very much indeed for a hugely memorable weekend and looking after us so exceptionally. It was an enormous treat
