Welcome to Dundas Castle

Situated just a few miles away from the city of Edinburgh, Dundas Castle offers a grand and wonderful Castle location for every destination wedding couple. As an exclusive use venue, every couple gets access to the Castle and it’s immediate private grounds entirely to themselves for their friends and family. A true gem, on the doorstep of Edinburgh, with the city centre located only 12 miles away.

With history dating back to the 12th Century, the Castle was lovingly restored in the 1990’s by Sir Jack and Lady Stewart- Clark, whose vision has been interspersed throughout the current design.

Inside the castle there are seventeen gorgeous bedrooms in Georgian Style, that can accommodate thirty seven guests. A great option for an indoor ceremony is The Great Hall with its vaulted ceiling and original stonework, creating a truly romantic setting for an authentically beautiful Scottish wedding. If you are looking for an outdoor ceremony, you can either get married on the front lawn with the Castle as a backdrop or you can say your vows in the Courtyard with its white stone fountain and coloured, arched doors.

Dine in the atmospheric Stag Chamber if your Wedding party is less than 26 persons, or within the elegant Croquet room for up to 60. The Castle also boasts a permanent Pavilion on the front lawn that seats up to 200 persons for larger groups.

We love:

Indulging in the luxurious accommodation surrounded by the beautiful countryside and all that just a quick drive away from majestic Edinburgh.

The exclusivity of having the whole place for you and your family and friends.

The variety of exciting outdoor activities the estate offers.

Food and beverages:

A great advantage is the fact that there is no need to hassle about your choice of caterers as the Castle works with Sodexo. Being the in-house caterers of this splendid wedding venue, they can satisfy any dietary requirements for you and your guests. In addition, there are permanent bars throughout the venue, available throughout your stay.
