About Dundas Castle

Welcome to Dundas Castle, one of Scotland’s most beautiful castles that is steeped in history and is one of the top 5 star exclusive use venues in Britain! Unlike a hotel event, our Castle is booked in its entirety for your wedding day. Whether you’ve been dreaming of your special day since you were young, or if you have just received the biggest surprise of your life and have no idea where to begin, we will be on hand through it all to help you to plan your big day.

If you’re looking for a religious, humanist or civil ceremony, there are several spectacular settings at Dundas Castle for you to exchange your vows. In Scotland, Humanist ceremonies are legally binding so there is no reason for you to host a separate civil ceremony! Our team of experts will be on hand to help and advise you to make sure that the necessary legal requirements are met.

There are 17 bedrooms available for your closest family and friends to relax in, and we will invite you in to our venue prior to the day to allocate each room to your guests who would like to stay with us. Our wonderfully romantic Boathouse on the loch can be hired for the night of your wedding, and is booked independently of the Castle. Please let your wedding coordinator know if you would like to stay here.

The caterers at Dundas Castle are Prestige Venues and Events. They will work alongside you and your fiancée to create a delicious menu that will be perfect for you both, and your guests. About three months before your wedding, you will be invited to meet with your caterers for a tasting to make a final decision on your menu. All of our food can be Halal and we are able to offer Kosher-style dishes.

We would love to send you our Wedding Brochure with further details so please get in touch today to discuss your plans.

• 5 Star Exclusive Use Venue • Historic Auld Keep location for your ceremony of up to 110 guests • 17 Luxurious Bedrooms • Luxury Pavilion for your reception of up to 200 guests • Just 10 minutes from Edinbugh Airport, and 25 minutes from Edinburgh city centre • 2 Day Wedding Packages available

No venue like it!
Venue Service

By Calum and Stephanie, on 30 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 16 Jul 2016

Thank you for everything the amazing team at Dundas did for us. We were so pleased we chose this venue for our wedding day there is no way we would have got a nicer venue with better staff anywhere! We are so grateful for the special day you all gave us. The advice and interest you all paid in every aspect of our wedding was invaluable. Location, reputation, the grounds, the staff, the service, it’s a special place. No venue like it! The staff couldn’t have done enough for us. They played a huge part in creating our special day. Alyson and Morvern were amazing! So many of our guests complimented the staff and the service. It was the best we have ever experienced at a wedding. The food was the best we have tasted at a wedding with a menu like no other. Top restaurant standards. Recommendations were top class, callanish, Planet Flowers, Prestige, Alan and Jackie Rankine. Family and friends found the accommodation luxurious and befitting of Dundas Castle Weddings.

most memorable highlights of our lives
Venue Service

By Fred, Father of the Bride, on 30 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 02 Jul 2016

I don’t even know where to begin to thank everyone for one of the most memorable highlights of our lives. Ive attended, as well as hosted, many affairs and there is no doubt in my mind this is by far the most wonderful event. Yes, it was my daughter’s wedding and I couldn’t be happier. But when a venue performs like the Dundas, you deserve as much credit for our happiness. From the very beginning when we started meeting the staff from different departments over a year ago, everything ran flawless. Helpful, professional and delightful to work with. Considering much of the correspondence was from a far the moment we arrived on the day of the wedding, you made us feel at home and relaxed. You were prepared for everything and the wedding ran without any issues at all. Amazing!! I had the opportunity to meet several members of your staff and I have to say they are a true reflection of your professionalism and client service. Thank you. Im not sure if the staff in the pavilion is your’s, or the caterers, but the service during dinner and the party was beautiful. It almost felt the serving of dinner was choreographed. Friends and family were amazed of the excellent service provided. Thank you. We have received so many wonderful comments from our friends and family about the Dundas. The guests from across the pond were amazed; the Scots speechless (probably because of the open bar…LOL). Everyone said this was the best affair they have ever been to…ever. I can go on and on. Thank you and your entire staff for making this such a beautiful day for Rachel and Fraser. They will have this memory forever.

Best Wedding Venue!
Venue Service

By Rachel and Fraser, on 30 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 02 Jul 2016

We just recently had our wedding held at Dundas Castle in South Queensferry, Scotland. The day was more than we could have ever imagined it. They provide so many options for you that booking outside suppliers is minimal. From the start of working with Dundas, the staff has been extremely friendly and helpful. They are very attentive and easy to work with. Their main goal for you on your day is to make everything you want to happen. It's hard to imagine that everything is basically laid out for you, but when the day comes, they make the day run so smooth and exciting that nothing can go wrong. Our guests are still writing to us that our wedding at Dundas is the best wedding they have ever gone to. They work well with planning internationally as well. We had a unique wedding with many people flying internationally. They catered to everyone. If they didn't provide something themselves, they have many referrals to give you that can help you find the right band, florist, photographer, etc. Rain or Shine, your event, stay, wedding will be an amazing memory.

Had our dream wedding at Dundas Castle
Venue Service

By Liz and Angus, June 2016, on 30 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 26 Jun 2016

We could not have picked a better place then Dundas Castle to have our wedding. The staff were excellent and really worked hard to make the day special for us. The caterers were fantastic and the food was absolutely delicious. They helped us plan everything and met with us so many times to make sure everything was perfect, it was so well orchestrated. The overnight stay was brilliant - the rooms are like a fairytale. We had many American guests over and they all said it was an experience they'll remember always. We had so much fun we talked about getting a divorce so we could have our wedding there again!

The entire day was magical.

Everyone was in awe of the beautiful castle and the time "waiting" for the bride and groom passed in a flash. It was all luxurious. Everything was managed so well throughout the day that we could not fault a thing. We were told by some of our guests that it was the best wedding they had attended. Bride and groom were so happy the whole day and said they were so pleased to have chosen Dundas Castle.

We visited Dundas Castle for a friend’s wedding, what a venue! It was out of this world. I've never seen anything so pretty in all my life! From start to finish the day was perfect, a real fairy-tale wedding. The grounds of the hotel where gorgeous too, I loved the fact that the wedding party where the only people staying or in this hotel. Food where gorgeous. We didn't stay at this hotel due to limited number of rooms, we did however get the chance to see the rooms and they were amazing!
