A hidden gem, and this corporate retreat near Edinburgh is located just seven miles from the heart of Scotland’s capital. Barnbougle Castle was once home to the 5th Earl of Rosebery, Prime Minister to Queen Victoria, distinguished historian, renowned public orator, sportsman, collector and connoisseur. Closed after his death, the Castle has now opened its doors for the first time in almost a century.
Never before open to the public, Barnbougle Castle sits majestically within the Rosebery Estate on the western edge of Edinburgh with private beaches framed by enchanting woodland. A million miles from the confines of everyday office life, can you imagine a more conducive venue for your gathering?
