To celebrate the life of ‘Mary, Queen of Scots’, and the part she played in the history of Borthwick Castle. Borthwick Castle joyfully lowers the drawbridge and welcomes you to an exceptional evening of regal medieval delight
Saturday March 23rd, 2019
Surround yourself in the extraordinary comforts of our recently refurbished castle, experiencing Borthwick Castle as Mary did.
Power-play, intrigue and passion marked Mary's life and our Castle historian Kieran Rose, will share the very best stories of the Queen with us.
The evening begins in the sumptuous State Room with one of our specially created Borthwick cocktails. Afterwards, we descend into the splendid Great Hall for a magnificent banquet of six courses by chef Derek Johnstone, followed by what the Queen loved to do most: make merry in the company of friends.
