Hidden in a collection of historic buildings dating back to 1595, at the gates of Edinburgh Castle, The Witchery is Scotland's ultimate romantic destination.
Named, 'Scotland’s Most Romantic Hotel' by Scotland on Sunday, The Witchery by the Castle offers an enchanting experience that seamlessly weaves history and culinary excellence together.

Frequented by locals, city visitors, and even celebrities, it's a destination that beckons with its unique charm and extraordinary dining offerings, not to mention the 9 unique, romantic and luxuriously gothic suites.
Operating throughout the day, from noon until the last reservation at 10.30 pm, The Witchery lets you choose between two distinctive dining rooms.

Alternatively, immerse yourself in the elegance of The Secret Garden Dining Room, another candlelit haven with antique oak paneling and tapestries. The historic stone walls and intricately painted ceilings in both rooms narrate tales of a building that spans five centuries.
