The perfect boutique hotel and wedding venue

Situated in a secluded spot near Livingston just west of Edinburgh, and set in 22 acres of beautiful woodlands, Macdonald Houstoun House is the perfect country hotel and retreat. Once visited by Mary Queen of Scots, the historic building has the classic grace of a 16th century Tower House. Inside, 70 rooms blend luxury and character, with a unique feature bedroom in the Tower

For food-lovers, the Jeremy Wares at Houstoun House restaurant has two AA Rosettes for excellent local ingredients, expertly cooked in season. In the cellar, the cosy Vaulted Bar is the perfect spot for a drink or afternoon tea. Our Leisure Club and Spa have ample scope for working off the calories and a host of rejuvenating treatments.

And for business meetings - large or small - we have the rooms, facilities and services to make meetings productive.  We are one of the most popular luxury  wedding venues in Scotland with a team dedicated to making your wedding that extra bit special.   The historic tower is a perfect romantic backdrop to your day.  Macdonald Houstoun House is located only 2 minutes from the main M8 motorway, your gateway to the cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow.
