Scottish Castle Experience

Would you and your colleagues like to experience a modern day medieval banquet, entertained sixteenth century style by fire-jugglers, axe-throwers, men-at-arms, pipers and clan drummers? We invite you to our Scottish Castle Experience at Winton near Edinburgh, a castle with more than 500 years of history, originally a stronghold of the powerful Seton clan with connections to Mary Queen of Scots and the Scottish royal court. You’ll be welcomed at a reception with Castle Cocktails and delicious canapes of venison, quails’ eggs and asparagus. A medieval banquet will follow; a sumptuous modern day feast of foods from all over Scotland, inspired by the traditional castle kitchen. Your hand-crafted menu could include:
  • Whole roast pig with modern garnish
  • Smoked ham hough with parsley croquettes
  • Local venison and other game
  • Organic vegetables from East Lothian
  • Classic Victorian desserts with a modern twist
Whisky tasting, music and Scottish ceilidh dancing can also be laid on. Sir Francis Ogilvy may well lead the dancing. For an over-night castle experience, up to 16 visitors can sleep in the castle and wake up to a full Scottish breakfast. We also have luxury accommodation for up to 24 guests in the Estate’s country houses. Winton is a Scottish Renaissance castle designed to entertain the royal court. Its intricate plaster ceilings and carved twisted chimneys now shine out to welcome you. Ask us to craft your Scottish Castle Experience, however you want it.
