Corporate Event

Crathes Castle is a charming and versatile venue for both day and evening meetings and events.

Impress your clients with a gala dinner in the castle’s Great Hall, reward your employees with a family fun day in the grounds, or motivate your team with a morning meeting in the Horsemill followed by an afternoon of team-building activities. Choose from country pursuits, bushcraft, or mini Highland Games.

The beautiful walled garden and woodland trails offer the opportunity to relax, unwind and be inspired!

For larger events, the estate has ample places for team-building, outdoor activities and marquees.
