Dundas Castle Coronavirus Statement

Statement released 10th July 2020

We Are Ready and Our Welcome is Warm!

Further to our last statement and in line with Scottish Government Phase Three of the Route Map, we are delighted to be able to open our doors to welcome prospective wedding couples to view Dundas for their special day. As an Exclusive use venue and family home, viewings are, as always, by appointment only. This gives us the opportunity to get to know you a little better before your arrival and to keep you and our staff safe during this unprecedented time.

For a wee peep of the Castle from the comfort of your own home, please feel free to browse through our virtual tour!

If you are considering Dundas for your special day or any other celebration, please contact Jill or Morvern; who would be delighted to help and can be reached on 07895 581303 between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday. Alternatively email [email protected] or [email protected].

Furthermore, our delightful Boathouse perched on the side of our loch is available for self catering bookings from 15th July 2020. We look forward to welcoming guests once again for a relaxing mini break!
Safety and well-being is of course our number one priority. To reassure you before arrival, thorough risk assessments have been carried out to ensure that guests, family, staff, suppliers and contractors are all kept as safe as possible. Staff have attended specific best practice Covid19 housekeeping training courses, PPE, cleaning equipment and supplies have all been upgraded. Hand sanitiser is readily available in a number of locations on site. We have a flexible approach and will review all procedures along our journey through every phase of the Government’s Route Map.

Whether you are viewing the Castle for a potential wedding, special event or staying in the Boathouse, you can be confident that we are following all published guidelines and have attained VisitScotland’s ‘Good to Go’ accreditation.

We look forward to welcoming you! In the meantime, keep safe and well.

We shall continue to update this page as information becomes available.

It has been some time since we updated our message, as we have been awaiting advice from the Scottish Government as to the easing of restrictions in relation to Covid-19. During this time, we hope that you and yours have been keeping safe and well.

The ongoing Government advice on Covid-19 means that the office remains closed at present. However, we have continued to take enquiries and bookings during this time. Morvern and Jill are handling all Dundas Castle enquiries and client communications; they would love to hear from you if you have any questions about holding a special event at Dundas

We are now compiling a waiting list for viewings, for wedding couples who are considering Dundas as their special place to make their vows.

Until we are able to welcome you for a viewing in person, please feel free to view the Castle via our virtual tour.

Statement released 13th March 2020

Following recent announcements from the Scottish and UK Governments and the growing concern on the part of the World Health Organisation (WHO) with regards to Coronavirus, we have reviewed the processes and facilities at Dundas Castle.

We already adopt the highest standards of health and hygiene, operating to the standards of the REHIS (Royal Environmental Health Institute of Scotland) in our kitchens and with a focus on the health and wellbeing of our guests and staff.

As all staff and visitors are asked to wash their hands regularly and use hand sanitiser, we have heightened our disinfection processes and added paper towels to our bathrooms.  We are further reminding staff of the necessity of good standards of hygiene when working in the Castle and we are following guidelines on self isolation if someone feels unwell.

For the time being, the Castle remains open, our events are continuing as normal and we are working with our suppliers to maintain business as usual.  In time, should guidelines change, we will review this and update our plans accordingly.  As many people book their events well in advance, we are still, of course, taking enquiries and bookings.  If you have an enquiry about an existing booking, contact our team on 0131 319 2039.

We would ask that anyone who is planning to visit the Castle should not enter the building if they have any symptoms associated with the Coronavirus.  We would also ask that if you develop the symptoms of Coronavirus within 14 days of having been here, you let us know so that we can take necessary precautions for staff and future guests.

We shall continue to update this page as further information becomes available.
