Bank funding supports growth
Carlowrie doubles up to meet growing demand
Carlowrie Castle near Edinburgh Airport is more than doubling the number of bedrooms to meet demand from private and corporate clients.
The castle, set in 32 acres close to Kirkliston, has already secured permission to build 12 lodges in its grounds.
It is now adding 13 bedrooms to the current nine after securing a £1.9 million funding package from HSBC UK. The funding includes a new loan and refinancing of existing debt.
The venue, which opened in 2015, expects the expansion to increase turnover by 30%.
