We got married at Dundas Castle in June and it was the most wonderful experience from the day we first visited. The staff couldn't have been more helpful throughout the planning and particularly on the day, making the whole day run perfectly. The communication from them was excellent.

We were delighted to be invited to a wedding at Dundas Castle and it was absolutely wonderful. The location, the food, the staff and the organisation of it all was exceptional.

We just recently had our wedding held at Dundas Castle in South Queensferry, Scotland. The day was more than we could have ever imagined it. They provide so many options for you that booking outside suppliers is minimal. From the start of working with Dundas, the staff has been extremely friendly and helpful. They are very attentive and easy to... More

Dear fellow traveler, We were here for a friends wedding and had a great time in very picturesque setting but the staff at Dundas castle added nothing to the experience and almost spoiled the stay which is a real shame.

We had a lovely stay at the Boathouse which is in a very tranquil setting in the Dundas Estate. It's amazing that this place is so close to Edinburgh. Grounds are very well kept and great place to get away from it all. The Boathouse is right on the loch-side with beautiful views of the loch including all the bird-life.

Travelled to South Queensferry for a wedding and this is a place to consider for those looking for a wedding venue in the Edinburgh area. Weddings are the business here, not a hotel, but the main house is magnificent and the Keep where ceremonies take place is personal and private.
