Five star Dundas Castle in Scotland has launched a new service in response to its popularity for US weddings. Combining a 3D virtual experience, online meetings and tours and a dedicated wedding planner, couples looking for a special Scottish themed wedding can now step off the plane and right into their own fairy tale.
The Castle, set on its own estate, offers a 600 year old ‘Auld Keep’, 17 luxurious bedrooms, sumptuous reception rooms, a range of stunning ceremony spaces and a private hideaway boathouse, perfect for the wedding night. The Castle has launched a new 3D virtual tour with immersive 360 panoramas so guests can plan their wedding without having to cross the pond until they are ready to say “aye do” in their very own ancient Scottish Castle.
Louise Andrew, General Manager at Dundas Castle says: “Our new tour is particularly valuable for couples who live abroad, and want to plan every element of their wedding without unnecessary travel. The tour and our team make it easy for US guests – you can plan your trip to Scotland, see the bedrooms where you’ll be staying, check out the indoor ceremony spaces, or even walk through the front door for a warm Scottish welcome! For guests who want even more, we offer a personal livestream tour with one of our wedding planners, so they can step inside the 600 year old spaces and walk down to the secluded Boathouse on the loch.
“We regularly welcome multi-day weddings from the US where the bride and groom could plan everything without visiting ahead of their wedding. We believe the key to this is the fly through, our expert team which brings the ultimate in personal service and our dedication to making every wedding unique and special.”
Dundas Castle is popular with US visitors, with 40% of its weddings each year including US couples and having recently signed up to the Junebug Weddings site. Set in its own estate, yet only 15 minutes from Edinburgh International Airport, the Castle is remote and beautiful, yet accessible.
It offers all the luxury and service standards of a five star venue. As it is exclusive use, the Castle can be booked in its entirety and can welcome families and groups for extended stays in a range of comfortable bedrooms. The Castle is a home from home and guests have it to themselves for the full stay, making it perfect for transatlantic events.
Dundas Castle is perfectly situated, just 10 minutes from Edinburgh Airport and only 20 minutes from Edinburgh City Centre. While the Castle is easily accessible to Scotland’s capital, it is secluded within 500 acres of its private estate, so it is ideal for those looking to get away from it all, while also offering the opportunity to use the venue as a base to explore the local area.
