Dalhousie Castle Hotel and Aqueous Spa

Weddings at Dalhousie Castle A fairy tale castle for a fairy tale 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.

That castle still stands, and 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.

We know that it’s the little details that make your big day special. The Scottish light shining through arched windows, the thoughtful service, the soft white towels in our heavenly spa. And of course, this being your fairytale, there are lots of little ways we can 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. Let our dedicated events team help you create your perfect day, your way.

Give us a call 01875 820153 or email weddings@dalhousiecastle.co.uk and make a date to come and see us. We’d be delighted to show you around our beautiful Scottish castle and start your journey from ‘once upon a time’ to ‘happily ever after’.
