What a delightful venue for a wedding the Royal Scots Club is. A little piece of Edinburgh history and tradition, it is beautifully mode...
In the heart of Edinburgh city centre you will find The Royal Scots Club situated in one of Edinburgh’s finest Georgian streets, only a few minutes’ walk from Prince’s Street, Waverley Railway Station and the delights of the Old Town. Having recently undergone major redevelopment, it is now one of the finest Clubs in the country.
Although previously a military Club, we have now widened our membership and also offer facilities and hospitality to non-members. Since then, we have gained an excellent reputation as an events and wedding venue for parties of 25 to 200 guests
We offer a variety of private rooms with individually tailored and fully inclusive meal and drinks packages, as well as superb bedrooms for guests who would like to make a weekend of it!
The Club’s Dining Room which overlooks Queen Street Gardens has been described as one of the finest rooms in Edinburgh and the variety of quality fresh produce and dishes on offer will delight and surprise all tastes.
We still retain traditional values, and our helpful and friendly staff provide first class customer service whether for a special wedding party or afternoon tea for two. Our management team has a vast experience of organising Weddings, having won the award for ‘Best Small Venue’ at the annual Scottish Event Awards, you really could not pick a better venue for your special day. Nothing is a problem as everything is under one roof – we can even organise and hold the ceremony here.
Personal Message from the Manager
Name of Wedding Contact: Ayesha Nickson
I would like to start by offering you not only a beautiful venue for your wedding reception but also the professionalism and experience to take you through the step by step planning of your wedding. Ultimately ensuring that everything runs smoothly, leaving you free to enjoy your day.
Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
One of our most memorable couples was a lovely couple where the Groom was serving in the military. The couple had a little boy together and he was just the cutest running around making everyone smile. For the ceremony the Groom wore his military uniform and their son wore a little kilt. It was the loveliest family orientated celebration I've seen.
What’s your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Try to enjoy it as much as possible. It can be very stressful planning a Wedding with everyone having opinions on how your day should be but remember it is your day. As a couple you should enjoy the process as much as possible as when its all over you will feel sad. Make the decisions together and make them for yourselves not anyone else.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
One couple had a photo slideshow playing during the drinks reception and there were pictures not just of them but there favourite photos of their guests and of the loved ones that were sadly no longer with them. It was beautiful to watch everyone else watching them.
