We had a lovely stay at the Boathouse which is in a very tranquil setting in the Dundas Estate. It's amazing that this place is so close to Edinburgh. Grounds are very well kept and great place to get away from it all. The Boathouse is right on the loch-side with beautiful views of the loch including all the bird-life.

I stayed in the Lily room which was connected by a private hallway to the room my parents were staying in. To get to the two rooms we went down a private spiral staircase. It was very cosy and each room came with complimentary whisky! The grounds, common rooms in the castle, service, food, and everything was great for the... More

Travelled to South Queensferry for a wedding and this is a place to consider for those looking for a wedding venue in the Edinburgh area. Weddings are the business here, not a hotel, but the main house is magnificent and the Keep where ceremonies take place is personal and private. Wedding parties take over the whole property for the day... More

Stunning venue and a magical weekend. We booked Dundas for our wedding weekend and after viewing other castles close by there was no choice to make, Dundas stood out in every way. We initially dealt with Morvern who was an absolute pleasure throughout before being passed over to Alyson once our weekend arrangements were agreed. Both Morvern and Alyson were... More

Went to a small family wedding (80 people) at Dundas Castle at the weekend and I was very impressed with every aspect of this venue. The history and decor was mind blowing, just like stepping back 300+ years, with the wedding service taking place in the tower, must be seen to be believed ! The main house was open to... More

For my 40th birthday my wife booked this self-catering accommodation, the idea, an evening away from the kids and a chance to switch off. She went to a lot of trouble organising a special meal and very special champagne. On arrival were presented with this beautiful cottage on the most magnificent loch. Unfortunately on entry to the boathouse we were... More

A beautiful setting for a wedding of a beautiful couple! Friends and family could spend quality time together and witness a fairy tale marriage ceremony. Everything was first class-food, accommodation, entertainment and all the home comforts.

Located a maybe 25min drive from Edinburgh, only 5km or so from the airport. Perfect for an easy connection to early morning flight out. This was a truly magical wedding. Gorgeous castle, perfectly manicured grounds, wonderful and attentive staff. Where the wedding ceremony takes place is straight out of Game of Thrones. The whole Scottish experience (highland games, Scottish dancing,... More

Thank you for telling us about your time at Dundas. It is great to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay and had the chance to get stuck into the Scottish experience - nothing like some highland games and a dram of whiskey to bring out your inner Scotsman! Hopefully one day we will welcome you back. The Dundas Team More
