Why not propose to your loved one on Valentine’s Day at Edinburgh Castle
5 February 2013
With Valentine's day just around the corner, if you are planning to propose to that special someone, how about adding that extra bit of magic by popping the question at Edinburgh Castle, one of Scotland’s most romantic locations?
Edinburgh Castle offers a proposal package to help you create that special moment. The historic Minstrel's Gallery, high above the spectacular setting of The Great Hall, can be yours for 30 minutes to create a private setting. Champagne and flowers can also be ordered to add to the special atmosphere and will be ready and waiting for you.

Nick Finnigan, Executive Manager of Edinburgh Castle said: “Edinburgh Castle is located in such a romantic setting that it is the ideal location for a marriage proposal.
“Everyone loves to help out in a love story and our staff have assisted in many of the proposals, from hiding flower bouquets from unsuspecting girlfriends, to arranging a table with a bottle of champagne in one of the castle's restaurants.”
Edinburgh Castle is also becoming increasingly popular as a wedding venue, with couples returning to the castle for their big day.
He added: “St Margaret's Chapel, Edinburgh’s oldest building, a beautifully preserved 12th century chapel, is available for small, intimate, religious ceremonies and the Gatehouse Suite and Queen Anne Room are available for civil, religious or humanist ceremonies.”
