Corporate dinners and away days can sometimes feel like an extension of ‘work’, especially if held in a non-inspiring venue. For a business event in Scotland that has a sense of relaxed luxury and will keep your team and your guests talking for months to come, Barnbougle Castle, Rosebery Steading and Rosebery House provide both functionality and the all-important wow factor.

Whether you require a dining room for the evening reception, break out rooms to brainstorm, a game of tennis to unwind, or accommodation for an overnight stay – one of our venues, or indeed a combination of two or more may be just what you’re looking for.

In this blog, find out what our three exclusive-use venues for hire have to offer your company’s next corporate event in Scotland...

Barnbougle Castle

If a jaw-dropping first impression is what you’re aiming for then rolling up to Barnbougle Castle wins every time. Our flagship venue feels as though it was built for elegant black-tie dinners and board meetings with prestige, which is not far from the truth – it was once the entertaining space of the 5th Earl of Rosebery, who was Prime Minister to Queen Victoria.

The 13th century castle, steeped in beauty and history, has been kitted out with high speed Wi-Fi and first-class facilities to hold your board room meetings, team-building sessions and gala dinners in a choice of rooms from the great Banqueting Hall to the grand Scottish library.

Groups of up to 140 people can be seated indoors or 450 out in the grounds where you will find an immaculately kept lawn, ready for a marquee, secluded private beaches, and a terrace overlooking the Firth of Forth where we often pitch a stunning canopy for al fresco drinks.

Where could be a better fit for today’s business leaders and corporate teams?

Rosebery Steading

Rosebery House

Ten opulent bedrooms provide the option for an overnight stay with access to many activities nearby such as fishing, golf and clay pigeon shooting.
