Intimacy on a grand scale
Winton Castle is an exclusive use events venue and wedding venue near Edinburgh in East Lothian.
Winton’s homely and inviting ambience has been in development for over 500 years, ever since the Castle was first built and occupied by the influential Seton family. The Seton’s architect, the King’s Master Mason, didn’t work on ordinary castles! His carved, twisted chimneys still herald the palace within and the ornate plaster ceilings are the most elaborate in Scotland, all of which make it a unique venue for private and corporate events.
You’ll be welcomed by burning log fires and the enthusiastic but discreet home team, not to mention the ancestors looking down from the walls!
With its series of inter-connecting reception rooms, the castle has been designed as a venue for gala dinners, company away days, conferences and meetings, product launches and other hospitality events.
Your guests are welcomed in the Front Hall and will be wowed by the striking, beautifully proportioned Octagon Room. From there, they can move through to the Drawing Room, Library (King Charles Room), Cabinet Room and Dining Room, mixing and mingling in the opulent but relaxed surroundings.With welcoming fireplaces and historic paintings, there are plenty of talking points.
Winton Castle is an exclusive use venue; that means you hire the castle and it’s all yours for the duration of your event.
The castle’s outside spaces are as impressive as the inside ones – on a summer’s evening your guests can take full advantage of the lawns and terraced gardens, or admire Sir David’s Loch from the Drawing Room balcony.
