A private Scottish Castle which is a unique combination of private home and exclusive use luxury venue. This is a perfect for a romantic wedding venue. They have full licensing as a wedding venue and for corporate events, private stays and parties. Their residential accomodation is available for small as well as larger groups. If you are looking for that perfect romantic wedding venue in Scotland, Duns Castle is a beautiful setting for that special day.
This can take any form you wish - a Scottish tea, with your champagne/sparkling wine and possibly the cake/speeches, followed later by perhaps the piper/dancer entertainment and then a sit-down dinner or stand up buffet for numbers larger than 60: or you can have canapes, or no food and an earlier dinner - they'll discuss formats with you when you visit or by phone.
Dinner in the main 14th century dining hall is a memorable occasion. They provide good freshly prepared Scottish produce and liaise with you on menus. They cater for special needs if notified. There is a reasonably priced in-house wine list. Additional meals may be provided if requested, (lunches, teas). Own wines may be provided in payment of corkage charges.
They highly recommend the piper/ dancers performance (about 40 minutes - very Scottish, very professional but charming) before dinner - after dinner you may want a band, a ceilidh, a discotheque, or just tapes and a quiet time; it depends on age groups! If the party comes before the wedding, and stays, there are lots of local activities, energetic or relaxing: see the leisure sheet.
Their prices are based on the assumption that most if not all the group will stay 'in-house' - and their B&B rates are very reasonably priced to make that possible. Any overspill can be accommodated locally, sometimes even in their own holiday properties on the estate, to keep the party together. Normally you will want to visit them, look at the rooms and allocate your guests yourselves. For that reason they do not take individual bookings from guests at a wedding.
Babysitters can usually be booked. There is a flexible chauffered transport service within half a mile. Most of their rooms are large and they can, on request, accommodate children in their parents room.
