Edinburgh Castle

Situated in a stunning location on the Castle Rock with unrivalled views over the city of Edinburgh, Edinburgh Castle is Scotland's most famous national monument and is available for hire by corporate, conference and incentive groups for exclusive events. All events come with a private viewing of The Scottish Crown Jewels and Stone of Destiny (ancient coronation stone of Scottish Kings). 

The newly refurbished Queen Anne Building, situated in the heart of the Castle in Crown Square, provides a flexible venue for lunches and banqueting. 

The Jacobite room, which has magnificent views over Princes Street, offers a modern setting within a historic 18th century building. With its adjoining room, this area offers a flexible venue for a variety of events.

For larger groups, up to 800 people, the whole of Edinburgh Castle can be hired for a reception. Guests have exclusive access to the Castle's highlights including the Scottish Crown Jewels, the Stone of Destiny and the Great Hall.

Edinburgh Castle can also offer an exclusive private area for day and evening events in the 19th century Gatehouse. This area provides an ideal setting for small meetings and has a private terraced area overlooking the Royal Mile, perfect for evening drinks receptions.
