About Shieldhill Castle

Shieldhill Castle is a wedding venue and hotel located in Biggar, Scotland. This historic castle is beautifully perched on six-acres of private property. Just a stone’s throw away from the bustle of Edinburgh city centre, couples can experience both Scotland’s naturalistic landscape and vibrant city scene. Having gone under renovations, this site beautifully blends 12th-century architecture with contemporary touches for wedding celebrations that live long in the memory.

Shieldhill Castle can be traced back to as early as 1199. The team at this venue has maintained many original features while adding luxurious touches for one-of-a-kind festivities. With an array of event spaces located throughout the former castle, couples will get lost in the charming Scottish landmark as they rejoice in two families becoming one.
