A fairytale castle for a fairytale wedding
ONCE UPON A TIME, THERE WAS A CASTLE. SCOTLAND'S OLDEST INHABITED CASTLE, WITH TOWERS, TURRETS AND A MOAT. THE STUFF OF LEGENDS. DALHOUSIE.
What makes Dalhousie Castle Hotel & Spa a unique wedding venue?
That castle still stands, and its grand rooms have been transformed into the perfect place for your fairytale 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.
Although its ancient stone walls are thick with history, the castle's magnificent interiors, blissful spa and prize-winning restaurants are the height of 21st-century luxury.
