Thirlestane Castle

With its fairy tale façade and its parkland surroundings, Thirlestane Castle is the ultimate luxury retreat for a family gathering, group holiday or romantic couples’ getaway. The unrivalled accommodation in the South Wing offers guests the unique opportunity to stay in a castle just 35 minutes south of Edinburgh. There is a total of eight ensuite bedrooms across five apartments.  

These five-star apartments in this breath-taking setting can be booked either individually or as a group and can sleep a total of sixteen people.

All are furnished with a beautifully eclectic mix of contemporary furniture and original items from the castle collections including dramatic portraits and tactile soft furnishings. The castle can be let on a self-catered basis or groups can choose to be catered for in the castle’s Victorian Kitchen or in one of the State Rooms by our award-winning caterers. All bedrooms have their own luxurious bathroom and each apartment has a well-equipped kitchen and sumptuous living/dining space.



We would also be delighted to put together a programme of experiences in the Scottish Borders including:
