Fantastic job

Lisanne and I have just returned to the Netherlands from our magical wedding at Borthwick Castle. Jamie and Amy done such a wonderful job, we couldn't have wished for a better day. The guests loved the castle and rooms just as much as we did, the food was absolutely delicious and the piper was excellent and I'm sure Borthwick will be receiving a lot more guests from The Netherlands in the near future. No doubt we will be back. Our thanks to everyone at Borthwick Castle for the wonderful experience. Fantastic job!!!

loved every minute

Carl and I are wanted to thank you and the team again for making our wedding beyond perfect. Jamie, Amy, Kieran were wonderful and nothing but nothing was too much trouble. Please pass our thanks to Chef, the food was stunning and every guest has mentioned how fabulous the food and wines were. My only criticism, why didn’t you make us book 3 nights

Amazing

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 favour and book Borthwick!” –
