|NEWS & REVIEWS|
Winton Castle is a historic wedding venue in East Lothian that blends castle, palace and family home. As an exclusive use events venue, the castle is all yours for the duration of your castle wedding.
Our romantic castle is a hidden gem surrounded by mature gardens, deep in tranquil countryside, just half an hour from Edinburgh and the International Airport in Scotland.
With links to the powerful Seton family, Mary Queen of Scots and Bonnie Prince Charlie, Winton Castle has a rich, romantic history. The castle was burnt down by Henry VIII in the sixteenth century during the ‘rough wooing’ of Mary Queen of Scots, then rebuilt in the beautiful style of the Scottish Renaissance.
Winton Castle is also still the family home of Sir Francis and Lady Ogilvy, which means that it has a very welcoming, relaxed ambience. We call it ‘intimacy on a grand scale’.
Designed for entertaining in the seventeenth century, the castle has five exceptional, inter-connecting reception rooms which are ideal for wedding celebrations.
You are cordially invited to visit glorious Winton Castle in East Lothian on Saturday 1st of February 2020, 10am – 2pm, for our inaugural Winton Wedding Open Day. Come join us and experience a magnificent Scottish Renaissance castle and gardens in all their celebratory splendour, just 30 mins from Edinburgh city centre, fully presented as it would be during one of our beautiful weddings.
