We had our wedding at Borthwick Castle in September of 2017, and I still think about it just about every day! It was the most magical day and one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. The renovation they recently underwent is incredible, and all of the rooms look amazing. They managed to make everything feel new, while still looking appropriate in the setting. So many castles we visited in Scotland are beautiful on the outside, but on the inside they look like 80s hotels. Borthwick castle makes you feel like true royalty while you're there. The staff is also incredible, and work tirelessly to make sure all of your needs are taken care of. The icing on the cake was when we headed out on our coach the day after the wedding, and the entire staff waved us off. We all felt like we were Lords and Ladies in Downton Abbey! I could go on forever, but just do yourself a favor and book Borthwick!GOOGLE REVIEW
Words cannot describe the overall experience of Borthwick Castle. I was at the castle for a reunion. You enter the grounds and are immediately greeted by a warm, professional, and welcoming staff. The castle was decorated with American flags for 4th of July, as the reunion was for our American family. The interior of the castle is award winning, with the smallest details reflecting the era the castle was built in 1400s. You can still feel the history in the castle, as it is one of the few that were never destroyed or rebuilt. We learned that this was the last place Mary Queen of Scots lived comfortably before her capture. Each room has a theme and story of famous Scottish royalty. The food was outstanding! The chef came in 2nd for the Scottish food awards, and greeted us after the amazing 3 course meal. This was an experience of a lifetime, that I will always remember.GOOGLE REVIEW

We attended the wedding of friends here. I have to say that our experience at the castle rates as perhaps the best 24 hours of our lives. The friendly, attentive, knowlegable staff, historic setting, and lovely rooms were amazing. We were impressed by the thoughtful melding of historic setting with modern conveniences. This experience exceeded our already lofty expectations.GOOGLE REVIEW
Wow! Don't miss a visit. You may have to pose as a prospective renter at 10k pounds per day but it's worth it. Holes in exterior walls due to Cromwell's artillery. Interior spectacular!!GOOGLE REVIEW
