A unique venue in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town
Congratulations on your engagement!
Set in the heart of historic Edinburgh, nestled between Edinburgh Castle and The Witchery, we pride ourselves in distilling the essential ingredients for your perfect day. Our highly experienced hospitality and events team will look after you throughout the planning and execution stages of the biggest and best day of your lives. Whether you are looking for a laid-back restaurant vibe, or want to celebrate in ultimate style, we will ensure your day is just how you’ve always planned it to be. Just a short walk up the cobbles of Castlehill at the top of the Royal Mile from the Registry office, we have a number of packages available, starting from just £30pp up to £120pp.
If you are looking for a unique wedding venue in Edinburgh, with quality food as a real focus, then you have found it! The Scotch Whisky Experience has been welcoming guests for over 30 years, and Amber Restaurant for over 20 years; our experience in both excellence and 5-star service is second to none. Our in-house team of chefs create sumptuous dishes from Scotland’s plentiful larder. The exceptional produce of our country’s hills, glens, lochs and seas comes directly to our chefs in the city, to reward guests with tastes that will linger in the mind long after they have left the palate. And if you are looking for a whisky tour or whisky tasting pre or post dinner as part of your day, then of course we can arrange that too! Although not a working whisky distillery, we are a whisky visitor attraction, and it is our mission to make the world fall in love with Scotch Whisky! Let us tell our story to your loved ones on your special day!
With a number of different packages available in different locations within our building, we hope you will find an option suitable for you.
