Winton Castle Once Again!

Posted: 1st March 2017


Winton House always was ‘the Castle’ to many of our visitors, so the move back to our original name may be long overdue. It was only as recently as the 1960s that the name was changed to ‘house’.

Winton Castle has a 500 year old tower, Royal Coats of Arms, battlements, seven foot thick walls and a history that predates Columbus. Once a castle, always a castle! Read more about Winton’s history.

Winton Castle is still the Ogilvy family home – offering a warm atmosphere which characterises the welcome and feel of the place, from the long drive through the gates, to the impressive entrance through two large hallways into the great hall.

Recent improvements have revealed more of the Scottish Renaissance castle, built by the Earl of Winton to impress those in the royal court. External features like Winton’s famous twisted chimneys shine out to visitors to say ‘welcome!’ Just as they would have done for the visit of King Charles I.

The castle is a haven of tranquillity – ‘Intimacy on a grand scale’ – less than 30 minutes from the centre of Edinburgh.

The new name is reflected in our new website which we hope you like, and would welcome your comments and feedback.

Winton is a glorious mix and we’re delighted to share it.
