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. The Castle is yours to enjoy for the duration of your special event.
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.
From the minute I drove up the beautiful driveway, I knew Dundas Castle was the one. As soon as I stepped foot in the castle, there were tears! “When you know, you know”. It’s just stunning! As unfortunate as we were (due to several postponements), we feel fortunate enough to have been able to visit so many times, become friends with the staff, and now feel part of the furniture! It will always hold a special place in our hearts. We can’t wait to visit again on our anniversary. The wedding day was just unimaginable. More than I could have EVER dreamed of. I am honestly trying to find the words – I get emotional every time I think about it.
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
From the moment we first went to visit the castle in October 2018, we completely fell in love with it. I remember getting butterflies in my tummy as we drove up the driveway, through the colourful autumnal leaves and being welcomed into grand hallway. It was possibly the most beautiful castle we’d ever seen and we knew immediately nothing else could match up to it as a wedding venue. I’d always dreamed of getting married in a traditional Scottish castle, surrounded by beautiful grounds and grand interior. Dundas Castle had it all – and more.
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!
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.
We started our wedding venue search close to home in the South of England, but from the moment we visited Dundas Castle, we knew it was the place we wanted to celebrate our big day with all of our friends and family. From the moment we started planning to the moment we left Dundas Castle as Mr & Mrs, the team went above and beyond to make it the most magical day and weekend for us! A big thank you for the most special day and weekend!
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.
