YOUR HOME FROM HOME
Dundas Castle in Edinburgh is the most spectacular venue for your event. Whether it is a wedding, a corporate event or a family celebration, the variety of buildings, impressive rooms and 17 bedrooms all ‘under one roof’ will provide you with a stay that is truly unique.
Currently the home of Sir Jack and Lady Stewart-Clark, this authentic Scottish Castle has been transformed into a 5-star ‘Exclusive Use’ venue. Therefore, you can be assured that there will be no other guests or members of the public sharing Dundas with you; you really are King and Queen of your Castle.
The Castle is made up of 3 main buildings. The Auld Keep was built in 1416 for the purpose of being both a home in times of peace and a fortress in times of war. In 1818 the main house as we know it today was built by the renowned architect William Burn and has belonged to the Stewart-Clark family since the late 1800s. The classic Pavilion on the lawns completes this magnificent trio of buildings to offer an elegant space for further entertaining.
With our dedicated coordinators on hand to meet all your needs, you can be assured that you and your guests will have a memorable and wonderful experience.
Everything about our wedding was perfect! We could not have asked for a more wonderful venue and team. They exceeded every expectation and helped us to create a more beautiful day than I ever could have imagined. All of our guests were blown away by the Castle and the grounds. Dundas Castle is an absolutely picture-perfect venue – from the top of the Keep to the drawing room, every photo was stunning. The team’s professionalism, friendliness and attention to detail made the planning process so easy. They embraced all our American traditions and anticipated every need. It was truly the best day of our lives
Have just come back from a 3 day break and we had a fantastic time, stunning place and views cottages well equipped and the wardens cant do enough for you no matter what time of day. We walked into south Queensferry on the Sunday only a half hour walk great views of the bridges.
We were initially so reluctant to choose the Courtyard for our ceremony due to ‘Scotland’s summer’ but it paid off and the guests LOVED it. They really liked how it flowed so well into the drinks reception. I love the photograph of my sister and myself looking out of the window to see all the guests arrive and take their seats! The option for us to get more photographs taken throughout the Castle and on the roof made it extra special as we got to enjoy both aspects that would have been available if we got married inside.
“To all the grooms - don't feel as though you have to stand at the top of the aisle once all of your guests are seated as your bride may be a little late! You can stand up at the last minute”
The team at Dundas Castle was incredible and made such an amazing day even better! In particular, Fleur was always there to help us and our family with any last minute needs, which made our special day run flawlessly!
We had friends and family travelling from afar to come to our wedding at Dundas castle, so we were anxious to make sure it was worth it for them. Everyone in attendance has told us it was the best wedding they'd ever been to, and we know it was in large part because of our choice to have it at Dundas Castle. The beautiful setting, the wonderful staff and the warm, joyful environment that was created for us were so special! Dundas were such a support, kept everyone happy, and were so flexible with the individual touches we chose to add. What a stunning setting for an owl delivering the wedding rings, an inflatable T-rex delivering canapes and a bunch of Canadians learning how to ceilidh-dance! We had a fantastic day, and can't wait to revisit the castle to walk the grounds and say hi to the llamas sometime soon.
Our experienced team will be with you every step of the way from the first phone call to the final goodbye.
From a night in the romantic Boathouse to a cosy and fluffy bathrobe, give the gift of a Dundas memory.
