Lord of the stags title
Hire a castle for your stag do


Your Castle m’Lords

Steeped in history, this Scottish castle – located 40 miles south of Edinburgh in the heart of the Ettrick Forest – is brimming with grandiose character. Built back in the 1530s, it was previously the ancient hunting ground of Scottish royalty up to the days of Mary Queen of Scots.

The castle you'll be staying in

The castle is exclusively yours for the weekend and you get complete run of the grounds and the castle itself. With two kitchens this is self catering in style, however even pizza companies deliver to castles if none of you fancy taking on cooking responsibilities. Or alternatively catering can be added to your package.

As well as extensive grounds our Scottish castle hideaway comes complete with...

  • Accommodation - Sleeps up to 12 stags in the castle
  • Ample car parking available
  • Kitchens (x2)
  • Barbecue and outdoor seating in the walled garden
  • Lounge
  • Bar
  • Games room
  • Castle grounds
  • Activities within the grounds or in the local area

Your knights

Becoming Lords...

As with all our castle packages once the weekend is over you won’t have to check your Facebook page for photos as a reminder of your weekend, the guys will all be given a permanent reminder. Each attendee will become a “Lord” however as this castle lies north of the border it is only fitting that you can take the equivalent Scottish title of "Laird" if you wish. Simply specify the title you’d prefer when enquiring.

More Details

Our Lord of the Stags packages are unlike any other stag weekend out there, this is a chance to do something completely unique that you and the lads will be talking about for years. With your stately titles in place you can even create your own round table... we suggest you place beer in the middle of it so you can toast your fellowship properly.

If you’re organising the party on behalf of the groom this really is a surprise package that you’ll score serious brownie points for, after all it’s not every groom that heads off on his stag party, leaving home as a "Mr" and returning a "Lord".

Our castle packages are available as weekend or midweek packages, they are incredibly popular venues for wedding and corporate parties so it is best to enquire early to check availability on your chosen dates.
