This is what one TripAdvisor reviewer had to say of her time at Duns Castle:
‘Once in a lifetime… My husband and I were married at Duns Castle 10 years ago. It was an extraordinary and spectacular venue… everything we wanted and more. We were impeccably cared for by the staff and every detail of the wedding went off without a hitch. That’s a big accomplishment given we planned it via email from Los Angeles! The photos don’t come close to doing the castle justice. The detail and care of the staff and the inherent ambiance of the castle and grounds made our stay simply magical!’
