Enter the ancient arched gateway of Borthwick Castle and you enter a hidden world of luxury and majestic style, steeped in 600 years of dramatic Scottish history.
Borthwick Castle is described as ‘the finest keep in Scotland’ and on occasion played host to Mary, Queen of Scots. She once famously leapt from a window in the castle disguised as a page to flee an army of pursuers.
It has been lovingly refurbished, retaining its medieval grandeur and atmosphere, but with the modern comforts of a sumptuous home from home.
Within the castle there are ten uniquely designed bedchambers with lavish bathrooms, plus the newly refurbished Gatehouse sleeping 2 guests and Crookston Cottage which can sleep a further 4 guests, bringing the total capacity to 26 guests.
Guests can enjoy exclusive use of the Castle and its grounds for special gatherings, luxurious family celebrations, holidays, weddings, and corporate events.
