Located in West Lothian, Carlowrie Castle is one of Scotland's finest and most luxurious exclusive-use wedding venues. Though only 20 minutes away from Edinburgh's centre, the estate consists of 32 acres of beautifully manicured grounds, offering a nature-filled retreat from the city. Thanks to its picturesque features, such as a stunning walled garden and a luxury marquee, it has everything you need for a beautiful wedding day.

Facilities and Capacity

Carlowrie Castle offers to-be-weds a marquee for open-air wedding breakfasts and evening receptions. The bright space boasts floor-to-ceiling windows and views of the lawn and the Castle. There is a fabulous marble-topped bar, boutique restrooms, crystal chandeliers, and colour-select led lighting within the setting. Here, couples can host up to 275 for the wedding breakfast and 400 for the evening reception. Alternatively, The Orangery is available for milestone events with up to 100 for the meal and 150 for the evening reception. The elegant, blank canvas-style space can be transformed to align with personal preferences. The setting has direct access to the extensive grounds and is wheelchair-accessible.


Spread across three floors of Carlowrie Castle combined with Carlowrie’s Gate Lodge and our latest accommodation, The Stables, we offer twenty-one spacious and luxurious bedrooms, accommodating up to 42 guests. Every room enjoys breathtaking views across the 32-acre castle grounds.
