Dramatically revamped…

‘Edinburgh’s most eagerly awaited reopening of 2021’ – Melville Castle combines Scottish grandeur with many original touches.

From intimate fairy-tale weddings and secret elopements to exclusive opulent banquets for 150, their team is on hand to orchestrate your special day. Enchanting ballrooms, manicured gardens, a contemporary marquee and luxury rooms connect together to create the perfect backdrop to any celebration.

Food is one of the most memorable elements of a wedding, so it’s important to get it right. You and your guests are in very safe hands at Melville Castle. From melt-in-the-mouth canapés and gourmet wedding breakfasts to tantalising and moreish midnight snacks there is something for everyone. Their food is made using the freshest local ingredients and can be tailored to reflect your taste.

Don’t let the party finish without some rest. The 33 bedrooms including nine suites are each individually styled with unique key features and Scottish artefacts. The two Bridal Suites bask in the history of the lovers Mary Queen of Scots and David Rizzio, and will ensure a memorable night for newly-wed couples. Fall asleep comfortably in the magnificent beds, dressed with the very best Egyptian cotton bedding to ensure the ultimate comfort. Let the party continue at breakfast and reminisce the memories forever forged the day before.
