Dalhousie Castle

13th Century Castle Hotel with Spa, Edinburgh, Scotland

This fortress fit for a king or queen with blissful spa facilities, award-winning fine dining and 35 beautiful bedrooms (some with four poster beds)  Its grand rooms have been transformed into the perfect place for your fairy tale wedding. Dalhousie towers over its own 11-acre parkland estate beside the River Esk. Just eight miles from Edinburgh but a very long away from the bustle of modern life. It’s a place like no other, a place of beauty, history and award-winning cuisine. Of spiral staircases and four-poster beds. Of indulgence and relaxation. A place where fairy tales come true.

There are lots of little ways to bring a little extra magic to make it even more memorable. Perhaps the castle pipe sergeant will welcome your guests with a stately skirl of bagpipes, or one of the castle’s owls will deliver the wedding rings during your ceremony. (We had this at our ceremony last year, the owl delivered rings to our girls as a surprise during the ceremony.)
