Can I tentatively hold a date for a corporate event?

Yes. Please contact our sales team – [email protected] 0131 319 2039. They will be able to discuss your event and look at available dates for you. We will hold any dates for you while the plans for your event progress.

Does Dundas Castle have a corporate event coordinator to help with the planning?

Yes, we have in-house coordinators who will work with you in the lead up to your event near Edinburgh, Scotland to ensure that the planning for your day at Dundas Castle goes smoothly.  There will also be an operations manager working with you on the day to adhere to the needs of the event and to ensure that every detail is taken care of.

Is there Wifi in the castle?

Yes, there is complimentary Wi Fi throughout the Main House, including the reception rooms and all the bedrooms, and also in the Pavilion.

Is there enough onsite parking for our corporate event?

We have enough space for 40 cars in the designated car park and should you be making use of the Grand Marquee for up to 1800 people, we have another car park area that can accommodate your clients.

Are there any hidden costs I should look out for?

At Dundas Castle, the event planner will ensure you are aware of all costs directly associated with the Castle once they have an understanding of your event requirements. Additional suppliers such as AV and pyrotechnics would be an additional service beyond the Castle hire. We go to extra lengths to ensure that you are not charged after the event unless it is for additional catering that is required once the event has started.

If my client numbers increase or decrease in the lead up to the event can they be accommodated?

Yes, where possible. We have a variety of rooms to choose from so if your numbers drop below a certain amount and if it is appropriate we can move your meeting or conference to a smaller room. We do have maximum capacities for each room which we will be happy to discuss with you to ensure that your event is a success. A charge for reducing numbers only applies when close to the date and this is outlined in the proposal.
