Our review

This historic Castle has a rich and fascinating past going as far back as 1155 and later with Mary Queen of Scots.  Set in 54 acres of woodlands you can lose yourself in the countryside yet you are only 20 minutes from Edinburgh and within a few miles of the major road networks.

Driving up the half mile wooded driveway this majestic and stately castle reveals itself. A roaring log fire and a warm reception await you. The 33 rooms offer a level of comfort that you would expect, with comfortable beds and invigorating showers.

Relax in the Library Bar with a book and a wee dram or in the light and bright Ante Room leading into the gardens.

Melville Castle has gained an enviable reputation of being one of Edinburgh’s finest wedding venues, large enough for a gathering of over 150 guests in the pavilion marquee or ideal for an intimate smaller event for friends and family, you can even hire the whole castle for exclusive use! Whatever you choose, you will be delighted creating culinary delights incorporating Scotland’s finest ingredients of which there is an abundance.

Whatever the occasion, be it a leisure break, wedding or on business, enjoy the tranquillity and fine food of this superb castle.
