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.
We hired Dundas Castle for our wedding for two nights over July 4-5, 2019. Hollie was excellent with communication and details leading up to the day. Genevieve was an absolute DREAM the two days we were there and she just made sure everything was perfect. And the entire team was top notch! From the moment we stepped in to the castle they handled everything and made the day an absolute breeze. We had a dinner in the stag room the night before our wedding and it was perfect. The day of the wedding was incredible and it had a lot to do with the amazing team at Dundas! I cannot recommend them enough, thank you Dundas Castle for making our day the best day ever at your stunning venue!!!
After a year of planning our perfect day, everything fell into place on July 8th 2019. The fantastic team at Dundas guided through every aspect of our wedding and its safe to say, made it so easy and stress free. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, the team at Dundas took everything off our hands and nothing was too much to ask. Genevieve who managed our wedding day was absolutely amazing. She made us feel completely at home and would've gone to great lengths to ensure we had the perfect day. The castle itself is really beautifully decorated, all rooms are uniquely put together and it has a beautiful atmosphere. The Auld Keep was fantastic and a great place for our guests to explore. The candlelit Stag Chamber made the perfect place for us to toast to our future with our family and friends the day before the wedding. The food, provided by Prestige, was absolutely beautiful. Every course was so delicious! The service was second to none, we really couldn't have asked for better. Dundas is located 5mins from bars and restaurants (handy for ourselves and guests staying outside of the castle) yet the castle grounds made the wedding feel so exclusive and private. We truly had the most magical stay at Dundas Castle and it really is the most amazing venue for a Wedding. We can't wait to revisit and stay at the beautiful boathouse situated on the castle grounds. Overall, such an Amazing place!
Getting married at the Castle was a complete fairy tale from start to finish!! From the moment I woke up in the gorgeous honeymoon suite, to mimosas with the girls, first looks on the lawn, and then walking down the aisle, I felt like a princess. The staff were more than attentive; they truly wished us the best and anticipated every need. The team at Dundas is first class- they made sure that neither Benton nor myself or even our families worried about a single thing all day. We loved celebrating at Dundas and keep finding ourselves looking for reasons to go back again soon! I think there will be a weekend at the Glampotel in our future. Every moment was wonderful. I only wished the whole thing could have lasted longer! The setting, the staff and the service were perfect! Each detail was carefully considered and executed flawlessly. We were beyond happy!
Our 10th Anniversary needed to be celebrated in true style. Many factors needed to be considered - size, location, carbon footprint, distance from an international airport, style, setting, facilities, Scottish historical background, accommodation and just a special feel throughout. Dundas met every one of these points. This was a very special occasion for us, and so deserved a very, very special venue.
Our wedding at Dundas Castle was perfect! The service provided by the staff at Dundas was exceptional – they really did make our wedding stress free and ensured everything ran smoothly all weekend. All of our friends and family who stayed with us at Dundas commented on how utterly brilliant and attentive the staff were – we were made to feel like royalty! From the moment we arrived at the Castle, all my pre-wedding stress left me! The Castle itself is so comfortable and relaxing, the grounds are gorgeous, and the pavilion provided us with a blank canvas which we transformed into the marquee of our dreams! We really did have the best day of our lives, with beautiful memories that will stay with us forever.
Last week we were in South Queensferry for our nieces wedding at the Castle. I can't imagine a more elegant venue for a wedding. From the rehearsal dinner the night before, to the welcome arrival pre wedding cocktails, to the wedding ceremony itself really nothing could have been more magical. The staff was so attentive, polite and efficient. The whiskey tasting was so classy ( and we don't even like whiskey!) The hors d'oeuvres were delish, the Prosecco was flowing and dinner was a delight. The castle itself is magnificent and was lavishly decorated with flowers..Just couldn't ask for a better wedding venue! Thank you Dundas staff for making Katie & Simon's wedding a dream come true fantasy for them and us!
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.
