Dundas Castle

Dundas Castle in Edinburgh has launched a new Ladies of Luxury package that includes etiquette lessons and afternoon tea.

The new package has been created after Dundas Castle hosted two episodes of the television programme, Ladies of London, in its most recent series.

The show follows a group of elite socialites enjoying the ‘upper crust of the high society world’, and the new Ladies of Luxury package offers groups a similar experience.

Ladies of Luxury package: what to expect

From being greeted by the castle piper on arrival and to lessons with an etiquette expert, to afternoon tea in the library and Scottish country dancing, the Ladies of Luxury package gives visitors what’s described as a slice of authentic Scottish life.

The experience includes three nights’ accommodation, afternoon tea, gala dinners, and a Highland games with barbecue lunch.

Optional add-ons include lunch, shopping and dinner in Edinburgh; a Scottish country dancing lesson; and expert guidance on Scotland’s national drink, whisky.

Further highlights include a fireworks display and a Champagne reception on the roof of the 12th century Auld Keep.

The package is described as ideal for small groups seeking a Scottish mini-break.
