About Thirlestane Castle

Lauder, Berwickshire
Lothian & Borders, TD2 6RU

Nestling in the gentle Scottish Borders hills with majestic turrets, Thirlestane Castle is a fairytale setting for weddings and is surrounded by parkland. This hidden gem is one of the oldest & finest inhabited castles in Scotland, and is just 35 minutes south of Edinburgh. Royalty and distinguished guests have been entertained at Thirlestane Castle since the 16th century, and now you can have exclusive use of this castle to celebrate your future with the one you love.

MAGNIFICENT STATE ROOMS
The sumptuously decorated State Drawing Room with its ornate ceilings is perfect for ceremonies for up to 120 guests and seats 100 for your wedding meal. Alternatively, the elegant State Dining Room seats 80 for your ceremony and 75 for dinner.

INTIMATE SETTINGS
For smaller weddings, our Panelled Drawing Room holds up to 60 for an intimate ceremony or 45 for dinner. Have the castle experience without hiring a large room.

RUSTIC, CONTEMPORARY SPACES
For a different feel, why not get married in our beautiful cobbled courtyard which holds 130 people for a ceremony or 125 for dinner. Up to 40 people can dine in our Victorian Kitchen which has a more contemporary feel but maintains the vaulted ceiling and authentic Victorian range.

TIME TO CELEBRATE
Overlooking the oldest part of the castle, our Rose Garden is a stunning setting for a marquee reception for up to 200 guests. You can enjoy a garden party atmosphere on a summer’s afternoon, and later dance the night away under the stars.

Contact us with your plans and we'll do all we can to make that happen.

Perfect Wedding Day
Venue Service

By Lauren, on 17 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 15 Jun 2018

My husband and I were married at Thirlestane Castle this past June. We first discovered Thirlestane Castle online and instantly contacted them to see what it would entail for an international couple to be married there. I quickly heard back from Rhona and worked with her over the months to create the best wedding day and venue we could have imagined. We stayed in the Lauderdale Apartment at the castle for our wedding and it was an exceptional place for us to get ready at, and enjoy our time after our wedding. Rhona made our day so easy and smooth and took care of absolutely everything. I highly recommend Thirlestane Castle for your wedding day to be absolutely perfect!

IT TOOK MY BREATH AWAY! IN A WORD AWESOME!
