Visited for lunch on Sunday. Warm welcome and great with kids. Wife had smoked salmon on crumpet with egg, the boys had cheese sandwiches and coronation chicken sandwiches and I had an awesome haggis cheese and red onion chutney toasty. After lunch walked round the loch and up round the hill one the Forrest walk. Great afternoon :-)

This castle has little to interest anyone and is pricey for the money charged. Portraits poor and the addition of some home made bits and pieces - such as painting a ceiling with figures is not good. There are walks nearby but nowhere was there info on them.

Went for Saturday lunch. Beautiful day, only 2 other tables occupied. The waitress appeared 3 times in 10 minutes and did something at the dresser. Looked at us but neglected to communicate, smile, take us on. Scottish tourism at its best. Left and took our custom to Turriff. Very poor.

Decided to visit here to sample the tearoom, admire the building and enjoy a walk in the adjacent woods. Unfortunately upon arrival, it was apparent that the driveway in about the castle is a rough gravel road with many potholes and at time of visiting, the forestry commission are heavily logging across it. I doubted whether I was even on... More

Been to Delgatie tonnes of times. It's a great place for a day out and a nice walk in the wood. The castle has a lot of history too. And the kitchen serves great food!

Lovely place to spend an afternoon. On entry to each room there is a placard which tells interesting facts and stories about the room you are about to enter. An amazing Aura about the place and I will return here one day for sure. Gift shop within the castle too offering small gifts etc and a coffee shop too.

Dropped in for a look and afternoon tea - great cuppa and the scones were spot on. Joan and her family do a great job in a terrific setting well worth a visit

Have to be in early to get a seat otherwise could be turned away. Best to book to save the long walk up.
