An intimate affair with maximum grandeur.

Every wedding should be a magical experience, filled with enchantment and wonder.

A fairy-tale Castle for your dream wedding

Barnbougle Castle is the setting of your dreams. Secluded on the Firth of Forth coastline, the Castle is both romantic and dramatic.

With crow-stepped gables, a high turret, sweeping views, a beach with private access and many grand reception rooms, it’s a wedding venue that is every bit as special as you are. Your day will be everything it deserves to be.

Exceptional, versatile and practical

The castle can host up to 120 guests indoors and many more outdoors in a marquee. We cater for your specific requirements and offer a versatility that is quite unique.

Options as unique and varied as you are

Exchange vows in one of our impressive reception rooms, dine in our vast Banqueting Hall then dance in our Scottish Library. Or get married alfresco and party the night away in a bespoke marquee.

We’ll ensure that your day is as unique as you are.

Exceptional catering

Our exclusive catering partner, Honeycomb & Co Events, has been chosen for their high level of expertise and individuality. The team will provide catering to suit your tastes and unique style of wedding day.

A church wedding?

We welcome religious, civil or humanist ceremonies. If you prefer a more a traditional service, Dalmeny Parish Church, a beautiful 12th century village church, is only a mile away.

Above and beyond

It's not just our venue that is top class. At Barnbougle we pride ourselves on our meticulous customer service, giving you the peace of mind to enjoy your special day.

Your guests will find getting here straightforward. We are just fifteen minutes from Edinburgh International Airport, only seven miles from the heart of Edinburgh and close to the Forth Bridges.

I am always amazed when I am introduced to true hidden gems. Recently I was invited to discover Barnbougle Castle standing proud on the waters edge of the Rosebery Estate. Having been reawakened after decades of being closed off to the outside world, I found myself very lucky to be one of few to be walking in the footsteps of the 5th Earl - what a formidable castle.

What a find!....Barnbougle Castle situated on the edge of the Forth with stunning views across the water with the luxurious surroundings makes for a truly memorable experience…

Karen Macartney, Informed Luxury

Quite literally breath-taking! You feel the magnitude of the Castle’s historical significance as soon as you step through its doors. Preserved in time and closed off from the world until now....there’s a warmth and spirit to Barnbougle that’s hard to describe… simply magical
