When our daughter got married in the Auld Keep at the Castle, the happy couple decided that they wanted to spend their wedding night in the castle as they hoped to revisit the venue and stay in the Boathouse as an anniversary celebration. Thus it fell to us, the parents of the bride, to take ownership of the Boathouse for... More

We were here in May 2010 but I only recently discovered TripAdvisor, hence the incorrect dates. My husband's company booked the castle for a week for their annual board meeting. The castle, the Auld Keep, the immense sense of history, the family's photo collections in the parlor, all of these were incredibly fascinating. Our room was lovely. But I think... More

I recently attended a wedding at the castle and would advise anyone to consider Dundas as an option...
