We have organized a private event for our whisky lovers' group recently, which includes clay pigeon shooting at the estate, followed by a lunch in the chamber room and a private whisky tasting. It is such a big fun, and a masculine activity. Thanks to John for organizing this and Janis to make it happen.

I came to Winston Estate for a dinner as part of a reunion weekend for an American university. We were a group of about 40 people from all over Europe and from the USA. It was perfect! We were welcomed by a piper and then warmed up with a glass of champagne by one of the fires, before the laird... More

My company was here for a team building in June 2014 and we were heartily welcomed by the General Manager. First we were given a talk on the history of the family and the estate and then offered a tour of the house accompanied by a cup of coffee or tea. The activities (hovercraft, archery, clay pigeon shooting) were very... More

Went to Winton House on the day of their Fun Day at Easter. Was a bit disappointed paying £4 for the carpark/gardens but the £5 I then paid for the tour of the house was very much worth it. Perhaps the weather meant their were less stalls etc than I expected but the own who took us round the house... More

Winton House offers an amazing environment - fulfilling everyone's dream of the best aspects of life in Scotland! The period interiors are inviting, and stuffed with historic treasures. The gardens and grounds are stunning. Overall the atmosphere is both imposing and yet genuinely homely too. Also, the place is managed as part of a country estate with a genuine sense... More

Two of our best friends decided after a loooooong time to tie the knot. The venue, Winton House near Peacaitland. They "hired" the whole place, and we were all free to wander about in these fantastic rooms, except the doors marked Private, and take in the paintings, books and anything you want. It's probably easier to look here. http://www.wintonhouse.co.uk/ Suffice... More

After searching for a venue for our Christmas event, we decided on Winton House. The preview tour was amazing and I knew that the American Bridge group would love the Winton House. As our coach approached the house, the bagpipper began playing and continued to play as we entered the house. My staff were in awe! The house was decorated... More

For a reunion of old friends we organised a fun weekend in Edinburgh. Our time at Winton House was absolutely one of the highlights and we all had a fantastic time! The main part of our day was made up of a clay pigeon shooting session under the expert guidance of Billy Gordon, among others 22 times Scottish champion and... More

A wonderful experience where the host - the Earl - has tea with you. The chef is one of the best in Scotland - even the haggis was great! The House is open for your viewing - no red velvet ropes to keep you from examining VanDykes and letters from Mary Queen of Scots. We are returning this summer and... More
