Dundas Castle is one of Scotland’s most beautiful and historic castles and it is now an officially recognised 5 Star Exclusive Use venue. Unlike a hotel, the Castle is booked in its entirety for a wide variety of events – weddings, conferences, business meetings, incentive travel group visits, golfing holidays, private dinner parties, launch parties and receptions.
For those celebrations and gatherings that deserve only the very best
From exquisite gala dinners to successful meetings and activity days
The perfect Scottish castle for the romantic wedding of your dreams
A romantic retreat for two secluded on your own private loch
Thank you for an unforgettable experience! I am confident that I speak for all when I say that this was a lifetime high-light. Your service was impeccable, the food was exquisite and the scenery was unbelievable
Dundas Castle wasn’t the first venue we visited, but it was certainly the last. Dundas Castle is a stunning venue which we instantly fell in love with. The setting for our wedding was important to us, but it’s only after the wedding has finished that you realise how wonderful the staff at Dundas had been from the minute we booked until the morning of the big day. No details are left to chance and no ‘stupid’ question or request is too much hassle. It’s the little things that can make such a difference and the staff at Dundas understands this and takes it all in their stride. My wife now wants to divorce me so we can get re-married at Dundas all over again… Thanks for an AMAZING weekend
The difference with Dundas Castle is not only the venue but the staff; they are professional, attentive and discreet. They are always there to help you but also just enough in the background to not impose on you or your event. In summary, the test of a great event is not only the venue but the staff and the big question "would you use us again"? With Dundas Castle, there would most definitely be a resounding YES!
The brief included providing gluten free food for our Chairman and I was delighted when it was suggested that the entire event would be ‘gluten free’ which impressed our Chairman immensely. The food was excellent and the staff were outstanding in their level of service, courtesy and helpfulness. Our event manager was extremely diligent with the detail and responded to any query promptly and effectively. It is a glorious venue in a beautiful setting and I only wish we had more opportunities to use Dundas Castle as it ticks every box for Genius Foods.
Dundas Castle is a truly magical place. The Keep provided a unique and stunning setting for our ceremony which we will never forget. The wedding team who helped us plan and organise the day were superb and cannot be thanked enough!
The venue certainly combines the old and the new with the beautiful castle and grounds, and the flexibility the pavilion gives to staging larger events, backed by a truly professional team, excellent catering and event management.
Our day was so well managed, organised and was executed brilliantly. You made us feel like our wedding was the most important in the world!
“Last February we started looking for a venue for the Bentley Partners' meeting. We needed somewhere where we could be guaranteed first class service, but also a place which had an unusual or unique feel to it. I was unfamiliar with Dundas Castle but the enquiry process indicated that they were customer focused and the outcome was that we were able to have an extremely successful event in a venue which offered my clients an extraordinary experience.”
Our special day at Dundas Castle was made more special by all of the wonderful team available on the day. We had many guests from all over the world and they were all speechless when they saw our wedding venue. A truly remarkable venue and a truly remarkable team!
As our wedding venue, Dundas Castle was not only stunningly beautiful but also very convenient. The staff at Dundas castle were both friendly and helpful, their support ensuring that our wedding day ran smoothly and without undue stress
We cannot thank you all enough for making our weekend at the Castle so wonderful. ALL our friends have commented on the amazingly helpful, charming team who were looking after us. The catering was faultless and simply delicious. You made me feel like a Princess. Ridiculous I had to wait till I was 50 to be so spoilt! Shame I'm so happily married as it would be lovely to have a wedding at Dundas. I shall speak to Graham and ask if he's willing to re-marry me so we can book Dundas again... In the meantime, thank you all very much indeed for a hugely memorable weekend and looking after us so exceptionally. It was an enormous treat
