Winton CastleĀ is a truly inspiring, exclusive use, wedding and hospitality venue, hidden away in the heart of East Lothian countryside, only twenty minutes from Edinburgh.

Available on an exclusive use basis for tailor-made events, Winton Castle is a castle and stately home, a gem from the Scottish Renaissance with intricate plaster ceilings and unique carved, twisted chimneys. With its five inter-connecting reception rooms, the Castle has been designed for entertaining and works well for a wide variety of private and corporate events.

Winton Castle is grand but warm and welcoming; guests comment on the wonderful service, mouth-watering menus and locally produced beverages, so it should be no surprise that the Castle has won three World Travel Awards for its client service and venue.

Winton Castle is a unique hospitality venue for weddings, private and corporate events, gala dinners, lunches, barbeques, conferences & meetings, activity days and team building events.

For a truly Scottish wedding, Winton is one of the most romantic wedding venues in the country. And, look no further if you are looking for a castle wedding venue!

Across the Estate, we cater for a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities for team building, incentive events and private parties: clay pigeon shooting, falconry, dog and duck herding, Winton Highland Games, Winton hovercraft, Winton laser tag, fencing, whisky, wine and Champagne tasting to name just a few. There are also extensive gardens to enjoy, whether for a game of croquet or just to sip your Pimms by the loch side setting.

For weddings, holidays, stag parties or hen parties and short breaks, Winton has 8 bedrooms for up to 16 guests in the Castle and a further 26 can stay within walking distance in two luxurious country houses.
