The feel

With majestic, rose-pink turrets, Thirlestane Castle in the Scottish Borders is a fairy tale setting, just 35 minutes south of Edinburgh. Surrounded by parkland, it is one of the oldest and finest inhabited castles in Scotland. Enjoy exclusive use of this 16th-century castle where royalty and distinguished guests have been entertained for centuries. With grand state rooms and more rustic spaces to choose from, we can help you plan a spectacular wedding day. Five luxury apartments are also available with a choice of three honeymoon suites so you can stay overnight at the castle with your wedding party.

MAGNIFICENT STATE ROOMS

With its 17th-century ornate ceilings the State Drawing Room is a grand space that offers a picture-perfect, sumptuous ceremony. The deep colours and portrait-lined walls of the State Dining Room make it an opulent space for a dramatic wedding breakfast.

INTIMATE SETTINGS

In the oldest part of the castle, the Panelled Room is ideal for smaller weddings or those who want a more private ceremony.

RUSTIC, CONTEMPORARY SPACES

For a different feel, you can continue your celebrations in the Cobbled Courtyard and atmospheric Vaulted Cellar. Our Victorian Kitchen, included with the overnight accommodation, is a unique space for a quirky elopement or perhaps a family dinner the night before the big day.

OUTDOOR EXPERIENCES

With picturesque backdrops, the gardens and grounds give you lots of options for that perfect wedding shot while your guests can enjoy games on the lawn. Our outside spaces are also a stunning setting for a marquee reception or alfresco ceremony.

MAKE THE CASTLE YOUR HOME

We have a choice of honeymoon suites and other apartments so you and up to sixteen of your guests can extend your stay at the castle. We only do exclusive use weddings so the castle is yours for your big day.

We pride ourselves on a flexible approach to make sure your day is everything you hope it to be. Contact us with your plans and we’ll do all we can to make that happen.
