Built in 1852, Carlowrie Castle is situated 9 miles from Edinburgh. Originally designed to be the home of Thomas Hutchison, an Edinburgh wine merchant and Lord Provost of Leith, it now offers an idyllic setting for events or relaxing stays.

There are 21 luxury bedrooms within the castle, gate lodge and newly converted stables. Each room features handcrafted beds and cabinetry, and original artwork by contemporary artists. The ensuite bathrooms have underfloor heating, gorgeous roll-top baths and spacious walk-in showers.

Whether you're here for a wedding, a business event or a gala dinner, there's something about Carlowrie that brings an extra sprinkle of magic to the occasion. When you book an event, the castle and gardens are exclusively yours for the day, and there are 55 members of staff who are available to make your time at Carlowrie a truly stand-out experience.

Guests are welcomed from all over the world and Carlowrie hosts groups of all sizes, from small, intimate gatherings of 25, to fabulous drinks receptions for 500 people. The Marble Suite and Piano Room are perfect for smaller gatherings, while the Orangery and Garden Marquee are ideal for larger celebrations and business events. The venue has three bars and plenty of quiet corners for relaxation and conversation. And the elegant walled garden provides the perfect backdrop for outdoor weddings and events in the summer months.

Carlowrie is also available to book for Christmas Stays and Hogmanay parties.
