Located just 8 miles from Edinburgh, yet a million miles away from the hustle and bustle, Scotland’s oldest inhabited castle offers a truly majestic setting for your fairy tale wedding.

Step inside the ancient castle walls and you’ll find yourself in a luxurious hotel with a fascinating past. But although the building is steeped in history the castle’s interiors, blissful spa facilities and culinary clout most certainly are not, and perhaps those are just some of the many reasons that Dalhousie reigns supreme as Scotland’s Castle Hotel of 2016.

Alongside the 35 luxuriously appointed bedrooms, (29 inside the castle itself) you’ll find a selection of function rooms that offer you the flexibility to create the day of your dreams, whether you want to host an intimate dinner or a more extravagant affair. Besides our historic chapel, we’re also licensed to hold civil ceremonies and partnerships throughout the castle and grounds for a stunning backdrop to your special day.

Sumptuous fine dining from our 2 AA rosette Dungeon Restaurant (awarded Best Fine Dining Restaurant Hotel in the 2017 Scottish Hotel Awards Regional Finals), a heavenly spa and the highest standards of comfort and service will ensure that you have the right ingredients for your perfect celebration.

And of course, there are plenty of little touches that we can also offer at our unique venue to make you stand out from the crowd. You might consider asking our castle pipe sergeant to greet guests with a rousing tune on the bagpipes, or have your wedding rings delivered by a barn owl from our falconry during your ceremony. We have a dedicated events team ready to assist you to plan your day, your way. But don’t just take our word for it. Please contact us on 01875 820153 to arrange a time to come and see us; we would be delighted to show you our beautiful Scottish castle.
