The spectacular 60-foot-long barrel-vaulted Banqueting Hall is ideal for a showstopping wedding breakfast or corporate dinner, while the stunning Scottish Library, home to thousands of priceless historical books, provides a backdrop for unforgettable photography.

Barnbougle Castle has always been a peaceful and welcoming place, being used extensively by the 5th Earl of Rosebery, as a retreat for study and entertaining during his time as Prime Minister under Queen Victoria.
