Opulent & enchanting

With 600 years of legendary history contained within the walls Borthwick Castle has atmosphere in spades. Unsurprising, when you consider that some of the greatest figures in Scotland’s history, including Mary Queen of Scots, Sir Walter Scot and Oliver Cromwell have graced the grand hall, bedchambers and grounds.  

But this is no draughty ruin. The recent renovations have breathed life into every room. Brimming with period styling, roaring open fires and luxurious home comforts, Borthwick Castle is history with the heating on.


The Castle is truly a feast for the senses. Whether that’s relaxing in the State Room with an artisanal gin cocktail, banqueting in the Great Hall spilling with candlelight and opulent floral arrangements, a retiring to your 4-poster bedchamber in the tower. Borthwick has a number of majestic event rooms which can be easily dressed for maximum effect. With the Edinburgh and East Lothian larders on its doorstep, this stunning venue can also deliver first class dining to match the surroundings. An unforgettable experience awaits any guest, and the Castle can easily accommodate weddings, intimate board summits as well as larger scale reward events, brand launches and conferences. Only 30 minutes from Edinburgh airport and city centre.
