Greywalls Hotel, Muirfield
A short drive East of Edinburgh with stunning views across Muirfield Championship golf course to the Firth of Forth, Greywalls Hotel was originally built as a summer house. The drive takes you up to an impressive sweeping facade, behind which, the house retains all the charm and personal touches of a family’s country retreat; wedding and school photos in the cloakrooms, each with a little caption and photos of the many golfing legends who have stayed or celebrated there whilst competing at Muirfield. With family antiques at every turn and a Steinway piano in the drawing room, Greywalls is a home from home.
There are numerous choices at Greywalls for your reception, offering formal and more relaxed dining options. The Roux-managed Dining Room seats 50 guests, and looks out across Muirfield Golf Course to the Firth of Forth. The smaller Garden Room offers a more intimate setting for 30 guests overlooking the gardens. On the day we visited, a marquee was being erected in the walled gardens with a covered walkway from the house into the marquee.
The beautiful walled gardens are the perfect place for a post-wedding stroll. With a croquet lawn and putting green in the Summer months, you can make sure your guests are kept entertained.

Greywalls encourage exclusive use for weddings of more than 30 guests, enabling you to take over the entire house and gardens for full flexibility.
The owners of Greywalls take great pride in their gardens with many years of careful thought and landscaping resulting in a beautiful mix of formal walled gardens, patios, perfect lawns, and hidden hedged gardens to discover – the latter being a popular choice for small weddings.
Offering 23 ensuite bedrooms, Greywalls offers charming bedrooms which are “a home from home.” Rich in Edwardian style, the hotel strikes a balance between antique furnishings and modern chic facilities. Most of the bedrooms are central to the hotel, with additional cottage accommodation within the hotel’s grounds.

If the croquet lawn, putting green and extensive golf course weren’t enough – the hotel also offers massages for some pre-wedding relaxation and a library for a spot of reading.
