The castle is set within Winton Estate with its thriving communities, farming, forestry and wildlife.

The Seton’s architect, the King’s Master Mason, didn’t work on ordinary castles! His carved, twisted chimneys still herald the palace within. His ornate plaster ceilings are the most elaborate in Scotland.

Since 2000, Winton Castle has been an exclusive use events venue near Edinburgh, all yours for corporate events, gala dinners, private parties and entertaining activities.

With six interconnecting reception rooms, the castle is well laid out and equipped for conferences and meetings.

An Immaculate Scottish Wedding Venue, Steeped in Romance & History

Winton Castle is also one of the most beautiful and romantic wedding venues in Scotland. It blends the grandeur of a palace and castle with the intimacy of a family home.

Yet it’s the staff who get most of the praise from guests. Our very experienced team love to share their experience and enthusiasm so that your wedding exceeds your dreams. See our wedding testimonials.
