Crossbasket Castle is a magnificent 16th-century fairytale-esque castle situated in West Central Scotland, overlooking serene waterfalls on the River Caulder. Steeped in history with 6 centuries of stories to tell, the Crossbasket Castle is an idyllic retreat on bustling Glasgow’s doorstep. The Castle’s fascinating evolution started in the 15th century when the tower was first constructed, and has preserved its unique character by restoring many of its original features including lavish gold leaf cornices throughout the hotel, which perfectly convey the luxurious grandeur typical of this period of time.
The lands of Crossbasket were owned and remained in the possession of the Hamiltons until 1440 when they were “acquired” by Alexander Lindsay. Living with his family in opulance, he developed quite a reputation for his vengeful and ruthless nature. Crossbasket was sold in 1619 at a steep discount to allegedly repay large debts from his life of extravagance. After changing hands many times, it was sold to Charles Macintosh, famous as the inventor of waterproof fabrics.
The perfect backdrop for a dream wedding experience. With our Grand Roosevelt Ballroom, a four-storey private bridal tower, and an array of opulent accomodations, Crossbasket Castle promises a magical time for you and your guests.
