Unlike most castles, Barnbougle has always been peaceful, welcoming and profoundly uplifting.
- Lady Jane Kaplan

This 13th century Castle is one of Scotland’s hidden treasures. It commands spectacular views over the Firth of Forth and is surrounded by the secluded, wooded parklands of Dalmeny Estate.

Barnbougle is only minutes from Dalmeny House, the majestic family home of the 7th Earl of Rosebery. It is well located as a venue - secluded, yet close to Edinburgh and easily accessed.

Special, versatile event spaces

Barnbougle offers the most memorable of event spaces - the very best that Scotland has to offer.

Its rooms are versatile and inspiring, ranging from the stately and magnificent to the intimate and secluded. The sixty foot long Banqueting Hall has a Minstrel’s Gallery and breathtaking views. The grand Scottish Library has thousands of books and open access onto the sea-facing terraces and private beaches.

The Castle caters for up to 140 guests seated or 200 standing and up to 450 in marquees. This makes the venue versatile - whether for large-scale entertaining or more intimate gatherings with family and friends. Bespoke weddings, meetings and corporate events are all welcomed.
