Exclusive Use Castles in Scotland

If you’re looking to book an entire castle to host a party, celebration, corporate event, or just a gathering of family and friends, Celtic Castles can offer a wide range of venues throughout Scotland to suit almost all requirements. 

Below are a few suggestions to get you started…


Fenton Tower is located just 20 minutes' east of Edinburgh. This 16th century building was restored from a ruin to provide luxury 5 star accommodation for up to 12 people. Fenton is particularly popular with golf groups, boasting over 100 courses within 30 miles, including Muirfield and St Andrews, former hosts of the British Open. Its location also makes it ideal for those looking to explore Edinburgh’s capital city. Glasgow is also only an hour’s drive away.


If you’re looking for a 5 star castle in an iconic location, Aldourie Castle might be the ideal option. Whilst being the only habitable castle on the banks of Loch Ness, Aldourie Castle is less than an hour from Inverness Airport, so is easily accessible wherever you are travelling from. The castle sleeps up to 28 people in luxury, with cottages in the grounds, offering further accommodation if required. The castle’s staff are on hand to help arrange any activities you wish, from themed parties in the castle to water sports on the loch.


Fantastic exclusive use venues don’t always need huge budgets. Castle Law, located in West Kilbride, approx. 25 miles west of Glasgow, is sold on a self-catered basis, with weekend stays for up to 14 adults available for just £2,250 (this works out at just over £50 per person, per night!). The fifteenth century castle has been lovingly restored by the owners and offers a great mix of history, authenticity and luxury.


Blair Castle is hidden away in a 250 acre estate, just twenty minutes from Glasgow Airport. The castle sleeps up to 38 guests in 19 luxurious 5 star bedrooms. The estate is a great base for golfing breaks with Prestwick Golf Club, Royal Troon and Turnberry all in easy reach. For house parties, the castle’s chef will work with the group to tailor make the menu, always using the best local and seasonal produce. 


Its cliff top position gives Culzean Castle one of the most dramatic views of all castles in our portfolio. Just 17 miles from Prestwick Airport, this stunning location is easily accessible from wherever you’re travelling. Exclusive hire of the castle gives you private access to the Eisenhower Apartments; the top floor of the castle which provides accommodation for up to 12 people.
