Duns Castle

"These will forever remain the greatest and most magical 3 days of my life. Duns Castle is an incredible venue for a wedding. 27 of our closest family and friends travelled from Canada and everyone was blown away from their very first view of the castle. Mr & Mrs. Hay make sure that everything goes off without a hitch. They truly care about the castle and all of their guests that attend. The staff on site is also wonderful. The breakfast, bar service (they stocked the bar with whatever we wished), grounds (especially in June, the flowers on the grounds are incredible), cottages (all within walking distance and have all the necessities for a comfortable stay) and rooms (all decorated beautifully) are all impeccable. They were not opposed to any of our requests and did their absolute best to accommodate us and our wishes. I would recommend Duns Castle to anyone who wishes to get married in Scotland. We cannot wait to visit again!"

Duns Castle, sits as the centrepiece of a beautiful, private, 1200-acre estate just one hour south of Edinburgh. A haven of tranquillity with its own nature reserve, forest trails and pastures, the property benefits from starry nights and good weather for much of the year.

The castle is not open to the public but is available for exclusive-use bookings, both catered and self-catered. With its outstanding beauty, excellent value, discrete setting and ability to accommodate up to 56 guests onsite, this multiple award-winning estate hosts weddings both intimate and grand. A hugely symbolic choice of wedding venue (the Covenanters amassed here in 1639 to defend Scotland’s freedom of worship), the castle is fully licensed and accepts ceremonies of all faiths.

Duns Castle has appeared in numerous feature films and recently starred in HomeAway’s global marketing campaign linked to Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. In 2020, it celebrates its 700th anniversary.
