The Setting

This exclusive-use, historical Castle is nestled within a rich 2,500-acre wooded estate and has a choice of beautiful outdoor spaces; the 17th century walled garden with its wisteria walkway; the terraced estate gardens which overlook the stunning Sir David’s Loch with its own pier; and the beautifully manicured croquet lawn and lovely woodland walks.

Winton Castle is in an accessible location close to Pencaitland in East Lothian, just 12 miles east of the centre of Edinburgh.

The Vibe

With a magical, romantic ambience, Winton Castle blends palace and family home with ease. A hidden gem set in a tranquil East Lothian Estate and steeped in Scotland’s history, the house is filled with a wonderful collection of art and antique furniture and exudes a warm atmosphere developed over half a millennium.

Winton is still the family home of Sir Francis and Lady Ogilvy, and its beautiful conservation comes with a very welcoming, relaxed ambience. They call it ‘intimacy on a grand scale’. The grounds provide the perfect backdrop for your photos, with terraced gardens, flat lawns, woodland wedding walks and Sir David’s Loch all set immediately round the Castle.

By limiting the number of weddings held here each year, they ensure that Winton is still something of a well-kept secret. It also guarantees that you receive the very best attention from start to finish. Whether you want an intimate party for 40 or a grand banquet for up to 400 guests, Winton Castle is a fabulous, flexible venue to hold your wedding.

The Castle has two gorgeous rooms available for your ceremony; the magnificent Castle Drawing Room and the stately Dining Room, both of which hold over 100 guests, and a choice of stunning outdoor spaces. For the meal, up to 100 guests can be seated in the beautifully set Dining Room or for numbers of 100-400 a marquee can be constructed on the croquet lawn. The Castle can then accommodate up to 200 guests for an evening reception and dance. Your wedding breakfast is of utmost importance and their chef will ensure you have the very best locally-sourced dishes. As all weddings at Winton are individually tailored, you will be invited to meet your chef during your complimentary menu tasting, where questions and comments will be welcomed.

Winton Castle sleeps up to 16 guests in eight magnificent bedrooms, including their newly refurbished bridal suite. Winton also has a wide and varied range of accommodation options, as well as the historic Castle bedrooms you and your guests will also be given the opportunity to secure three luxurious self-catering country houses, all within a 5-minute drive of the Castle itself, sleeping an additional 36 guests.

In addition to the stunning Castle for the wedding celebrations, they also have amazing outdoor spaces that can be used for fun activities. From highland games and clay shooting, to quad biking and falconry displays, they can add in an exciting outdoor element to your wedding weekend. A really popular option for 2-night weddings is to hold a BBQ and highland games for guests on the Friday evening before the wedding as a bit of an ‘ice-breaker’ event. Or how about clay shooting the morning of the wedding to settle the pre-wedding nerves?
