In keeping with the tradition that the number 18 brings good fortune Dundas Castle has launched its lucky 18 wedding packages aimed at the Chinese market.

With the modern part of the castle built in 1818 and celebrating its 200th birthday in this special year, it is the ideal location for Chinese couples to seek double happiness in style.

To bring even more luck in 2018, the five-star, exclusive use venue is offering couples who book their wedding for the 18th of each month throughout the year, a free piper to bring a real Scottish flavour to the experience.

Almost a quarter of marriages in Scotland now involve couples from abroad. Many are attracted by the country’s romantically breathtaking scenery, historic houses, liberal marriage laws and renowned reputation for hospitality.

Many couples dream of a wedding in a Scottish castle, and with its roaring log fires and 17 luxurious bedrooms, Dundas Castle lends itself perfectly to this ultimate romantic occasion. With the added Scottish features such as kilts for the boys, traditional dancing and locally-sourced food, a wedding at Dundas Castle is a true Scottish experience for overseas guests.

Dundas Castle is one of Scotland’s most beautiful and historic castles and is an officially recognised five star, exclusive use venue.

Sir Jack Stewart-Clark, owner of Dundas Castle, said: “We are always thrilled to welcome wedding guests from overseas.

“We like to ensure that couples get an authentic Scottish celebration, and for couples taking advantage of the Chinese lucky number 18, our fantastic piper will be on hand for free.
