Best Wedding Venues in Scotland

Dundas Castle



Whether you would like a religious, humanist or civil ceremony, there are a number of beautifully romantic locations at Dundas Castle where you can exchange your vows. Located just 10 minutes away from Edinburgh International Airport and 25 minutes from Edinburgh City Centre, it is situated perfectly for destination weddings. You will have use of the 400-acre estate grounds during your stay, allowing you to have an incredibly peaceful and tranquil visit. 

The Great Hall within the medieval Auld Keep is the most popular location for ceremonies; the approach up the spiral staircase creates a sense of occasion, the Hall with its vaulted ceiling and ancient stonework add to the atmosphere of romance.

The elegant Croquet Room provides an altogether different ambiance for a wedding ceremony; the impressive open fire, crystal chandelier and outlook across the sweeping lawns of the Estate make this room popular for a more intimate wedding.

Outdoor wedding ceremonies are becoming increasingly popular, and with a choice of settings, there is no reason why you can’t say ‘I do’ in a beautifully serene garden location on the Dundas Estate, or in the charming Courtyard.

Once the formality of the ceremony is over and the celebrations commence, whether you want an intimate candlelit feast for close family and friends in Stag Chamber, a more formal wedding breakfast in the elegant Croquet room or a larger dining celebration with dancing into the night for up to 200 people in the Pavilion, Dundas provides options to suit.  

The front of the Castle is the perfect backdrop for a grand finale, with a marching Scottish pipe band and fireworks lighting up the night sky.

Our expert team will guide you through the planning of your wedding, and make recommendations based on their experience, as to which suppliers would work best with you to make your dream wedding a reality.

Many couples take full advantage of Dundas Castle being a destination for their wedding; having 17 delightful bedrooms, a wedding is an ideal opportunity to extend the celebration over 2 or 3 nights; time for friends and family to get to know each other better under one roof.

However long you spend at Dundas Castle, as you commence married life together, your time here will be filled with love and laughter, friends and family, each and everyone making memories to treasure.
