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.
My Girlfriend got this stay away for my birthday as she wanted to do something different, it definitely was different but in a very good way. I enjoy camping, however, this was next level as it was in an amazing location and the tent itself is spacious as well as cosy. The bathroom and shower were perfect and the wood burner was great and heated the Tent up in no time at all. There is a BBQ just outside and we used that for dinner which again was great. The tent looks out onto a lake/loch and it is just perfect to sit on the bed with the door open and look out with a cold beer. If you are looking for something different and somewhere to relax and unwind then this is the perfect place for it. I can't remember the owner's names however they were all extremely welcoming and nothing was of any bother to them so thank you for that 🙂
“Remember to cater for any children. Drawing books are a good way to entertain them during the reception. If there are a number of young ones attending a crèche company is useful”
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.
It was magical - we highly recommend this and will definitely be back again and again.
“Thank you to all the team at Dundas for making our stay at the Boathouse so memorable. Lisa thoroughly enjoyed her surprise stay and has asked that I take her there again! Thank you all again for a great and memorable stay at the Boathouse.”
It would be hard to pick a particular part of the day that made it so special- the Dundas team and team from Prestige are both the best in the business! I can’t fault them. We felt like royalty and part of the Dundas family from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble; Morvern and Fleur were incredible throughout the whole process and put my mind at ease. Everything ran so smoothly and it’s all thanks to their team. They had thought of everything, what stood out was; giving us 15 mins after the photos, just the two of us, with a glass of champagne and one of every canapé (that we had taken so long to choose!) was a lovely moment for us to stand at the top of the staircase and just watch our guests enjoy, before joining the party was a lovely thoughtful touch! Even putting the photograph of my grandfather back up in the pavilion was so lovely of them. My Dad had spotted this on our second visit to the castle and knew then it was a nod from his Dad that we should be celebrating the wedding at Dundas! I really can’t put into words the weekend we had, everyone commented on the food, service and the beauty of Dundas. Just wish we could do it all again!
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.
