Borthwick Castle

Located 30 minutes from Edinburgh Airport, our castle is an incomparable 15th Century Scottish keep - the only one of its ilk in private hands across all of Europe. It is now the most stunning of venues, complete with 12 bed chambers and room for 70 guests, available for exclusive private hire.

Being at the centre of Scottish life for 600 years, Borthwick Castle has encountered many of the key personalities in British history and culture, from Mary Queen of Scots and Oliver Cromwell to Sir Walter Scott and J. M. Turner.

During its recent restoration, we have taken great care to honour the authenticity of Borthwick’s heritage whilst assuring that the castle delivers thoughtful, 21st century luxury to delight the most sophisticated of tastes.

Borthwick Castle is creating its own luxury niche for corporates seeking an inspirational space to have meetings and for private groups who want the luxury and experience of a castle and its team all to themselves. 

We sincerely, and with great care and attention, welcome you to join us within these amazing walls.
