Originally designed by Benson & Forsyth Architects to replicate the ancient Iron Age Scottish broch, the tower at the National Museum of Scotland houses a suite of Boardrooms combining traditional Scots architecture with twenty-first century luxury, offering a totally unique perspective for daytime and evening events as well as wedding ceremonies and receptions.

The Bute Room is a stunning circular room with a beautiful tapestry carpet, which adds colour and depth to the dramatic and imposing setting.

The Boardroom is one of the most sought after venues in Edinburgh with arguably the best view of Edinburgh Castle in the city. With a stunning circular burr maple wood table, comfortable sofas, guests can relax with a coffee or liqueur after dinner while admiring the beauty of the Edinburgh skyline.

These amazing rooms have a further well-kept secret; a private roof terrace for pre-dinner drinks and canapés while enjoying a panoramic view of Edinburgh’s historic old town
