The Upper Library

The Upper Library is a magnificent venue for wedding receptions, corporate events, gala dinners, drinks & canapés receptions, product launches, or any event in fact, that warrants one of Edinburgh’s most breathtaking interiors.

Lined with classical pillars and casement bookcases, the room is surrounded by an upper balcony with ornate balustrade. Look up, and you’ll be transfixed by the lavish centerpiece – a classical cupola painting decorating the ceiling dome, while the vast Garnkirk Florence Vase is ideal for a truly spectacular floral display.

Furniture made especially for the room by the famous Edinburgh furniture maker William Trotter enhance a distinguished and stately setting in which to enjoy a cocktail reception or formal dinner. Guests cannot fail to be impressed with the room’s magnificent features, which include a massive stained glass window commemorating Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee.  It is a wonderful, timelessly elegant room of real historical significance, making it particularly apt for life’s most memorable occasions.
