A very quaint castle ( boutique type hotel ) only 15 mins from Edinburgh and set in beautiful grounds. The history of this establishment goes back to Mary Queen of Scots who was detained here and all the rooms are named after various personalities of the time. Inside the public rooms, library and lounges are exquisite and furnished accordingly. Bedrooms... More

On Saturday 26th July - i was at Carberry Tower for a close family members wedding. The staff at Carberry Tower had been given a detailed brief, both verbally and textually, well before the wedding. Sadly, when it came to the big day, the manager, Douglas, let us down massively. His presence was non-existent throughout the day and when I... More

I was a guest at a wedding held here, and it was simply beautiful. The staff at the venue were absolutely wonderful and very helpful and polite throughout the 2 day affair. We stayed at the venue, and the room was lovely. We didn't have a great view but the room was selected for us, so perhaps ask for a... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Carberry Tower, I cannot rate it high enough. The pleasant lady on reception made checking-in a pleasure. The next stop was our room (Strathmore Suite), if ever a room had the wow factor this was it. A very large room well furnished with a four-poster bed, it was 'L' shaped leading to a superb... More
