Borthwick Castle is a beautiful venue and a place where dreams really do come true. Last week, we introduced you to this sensational medieval gem, with its fascinating history dating back 600 years. Let us now introduce you to some of the venue’s fabulous interiors and the array of unforgettable feature rooms which the castle boasts.

The castle boasts three large reception rooms: The Garrison, The Great Hall and The State Room. The Garrison is a stunning event space, perfectly laid out for weddings or award ceremonies. This room is full of character with its authentic stone walls, gothic arched windows and medieval feel throughout. The stand out red carpet and candelabras complete the décor perfectly.

Just wait until you step foot into the Great Hall. This incredibly long ornate room, with beautiful arched windows and covered in shining armour, swords, wall hangings, portraits and at the far end a large medieval fireplace. Here is the most beautiful high ceilings and décor we’ve ever seen. This space is ideal for a wedding feast or banquet, corporate dinners, dancing the night away and parties.

The State Room is the place to go and relax. The room is full of an abundance of comfortable seating, a warming fire and lavishly decorated with sumptuous fabrics and drapes. Here you can unwind with coffee and other delicious beverages, enjoy a dram of the finest whisky by a fire, try your hand at playing the grand piano or indulge in a delicious high tea.

Local attractions

Borthwick Castle is also a fantastic place to stay if you enjoy walking, as it is surrounded by stunning scenery. The Castle is also a mere 30 minute drive from Edinburgh and only 15 minute drive away from several golf courses. Clay pigeon shooting, horse riding, fishing and game shooting are also available locally to the castle.

This desirable and famous venue is best for hosting a memorable event that will be talked about a long time after your event finishes. Next time, we’ll be looking at the luscious accommodation on offer at Borthwick Castle.
