Private parties and family gatherings
Celebrate with family and friends in great halls which have hosted sumptuous banquets across the centuries, or in state rooms which have welcomed royalty, dignitaries and presidents. Walk in the footsteps of Scottish kings and queens as you stroll through world-famous gardens, sipping champagne and reminiscing with loved ones.
Whatever the occasion – christening, birthday, anniversary, retirement party, reunion, ceilidh, or simply an excuse for a good old-fashioned get-together – our venues are sure to inspire.
From magical castles, fairytale royal palaces and stylish country houses, to internationally acclaimed gardens, breathtaking countryside settings and world-class museums, the opportunities are endless with the National Trust for Scotland.
Lavish feasts or intimate dinners, delicious high teas or alfresco barbecues, you’ll enjoy outstanding service and creative menus bursting with fresh, local and seasonal Scottish ingredients.
Combine your celebration with indoor and outdoor activities: from tutored whisky tastings and atmospheric behind-the-scenes ghost tours at Brodick Castle on the Isle of Arran, to murder mystery dinners at Pollok House in Glasgow; from early bird safaris, clay pigeon shooting and traditional field sports at Mar Lodge Estate on Royal Deeside, to northern Scotland’s only Go Ape high-wire treetop adventure course at Crathes Castle – you’ll discover a wealth of activities across Scotland.
