Venue Introduction

The Craighouse estate, where our functions suite is based, is set high upon one of Edinburgh’s seven hills and is one of the city’s finest sites, with extensive grounds and panoramic views. The Craighouse Collection comprises of four function rooms, the most impressive of which is The Victorian Turmeau Hall, rising to a ceiling height of 45 feet. Featuring oak panelled walls, twin majestic fire places, Venetian windows and a Minstrels Gallery this room is unquestionably impressive. The Edinburgh Suite, which adjoins the main Turmeau Hall can be taken in conjunction with the hall, or separately depending on requirements and numbers. This suite which has three varying sized function rooms, which are suitable for a range of functions, from small intimate dinners, wedding ceremonies and receptions, to informal seating areas to coincide with larger events. Craighouse has been a popular wedding and function venue, with a “one client only” policy, you can rest assured no other parties or events will be using the same facilities.

Additional Notes:

The panoramic Craighouse Campus was originally built in 1894. Having first been established as a hospital, after a programme of extensive refurbishment in 1996, Craighouse was opened as one of Edinburgh Napier University's flagship estates. The function rooms at Craighouse reflect the Victorian grandeur of the age in which the building was built and boasts the wonderful Turmeau Grand Hall, which is ideal for large formal occasions. The Turmeau Hall is complimented by The Edinburgh Suite a group of well appointed hospitality rooms, which offer additional options for greeting and catering space. The building itself is set on a hillside and guests are frequently surprised by the spectacular views of Edinburgh which can be seen from the grounds and the main balcony leading from the Castle Room.
