Cornhill Castle hotel in Biggar, Lanarkshire is to undergo a major refurbishment.

The so called ‘Castle on the Clyde’ hotel is primarily known as a wedding venue but it does have impressive meeting and events facilities as well as an enviable location on the banks of the River Clyde.

The first phase of the refurbishment at Cornhill Castle will see the opening of the Grand Ballroom in early February 2017. The Grand Ballroom will seat up to 220 guests.

New bedroom suites are also planned in the original castle turrets. A further phase will include the conversion of an existing grade B-listed stable block at Cornhill Castle into 15 bedrooms.

Cornhill Castle is located in Biggar, an hour from Glasgow Airport, 45 minutes from Edinburgh Airport and with good access to the M74 at junction 13.

Cornhill Castle is operated by Manorview Hotels and Leisure Group. The group also operates Boclair House Hotel, Busby Hotel, Torrance Hotel, Lynnhurst Hotel, The Bowfield Hotel and The Redhurst Hotel – all in or close to Glasgow.
