“AGCO chose Winton Castle for our conference because we wanted a traditional Scottish venue which would provide a relaxed and informal atmosphere. We were keen for AGCO to experience a fabulous Highland Games and amazing food, all in a stunning location,” says Sasha Martin.

Here’s a case study on AGCO’S international sales conference at Winton Castle which combined meetings with a Highland Games, whisky tasting, BBQ and gala dinner.

A private meeting venue

The castle is one of the most private meeting venues near Edinburgh, ideal for board meetings and company conferences.

The Drawing Room provides a range of flexible options for conferences and meetings. It was designed to hold large gatherings, and conveniently inter-links with the King Charles Room, Cabinet Room, Dining Room, Octagon, and Vaulted Cellar.

Before it became known as the Drawing Room, the Great Hall was the public room where the Laird would administer justice!
