Our participants in the annual Kodaly Summer School come from all over the world and love the wonderful surroundings, the warm welcome and the amazing rehearsal spaces at Merchiston Castle School. We can’t think of a better venue. Alison Hanna makes the whole event run incredibly smoothly

Merchiston is a beautiful neo-classical building situated within around 100 acres of stunning parkland, and yet it is also easily accessible by all major transport links being only 5 miles to the city centre and 15 minutes drive to Edinburgh International airport.

We have a variety of accommodation which is available to hire and lends itself to a multitude of different uses, both large and small, from christenings, evening dinner dances, charity events, residential courses, rehearsal spaces, holiday camps and weddings. The combination of a ruined castle, beautiful grounds, elegant rooms and a swimming pool also makes Merchiston the ideal location for film and video shoots.

Whatever the occasion our events team are on hand and can assist with your planning, catering, decoration and facilities. Please call, Alison Hanna, Events Manager, to discuss on +44 (0)131 312 2258 or email
