“Thirlestane Castle was the perfect location for our wedding with stunning views and a fascinating history. The hospitality and attention to detail from the Thirlestane team was incredible, Monica was such a source of support and steady calm in the build-up and throughout the day. So many of our friends and family commented on how the whole day was unlike anything they’d ever experienced before – an absolute dream. Thanks to the Thirlestane staff for everything!”

– AMY & LAURIE, July 2023
