The women with bright white hair inside the castle makes up stories about ghosts haunting the castle every time. Everytime there's a new story which I have heard and also asked her about and she denied it. I took my whole family full of teenagers and was told I cannot pay for the family ticket which would have been abit... More

The castle is open daily and in the award winning Lairds Kitchen you cannot fail to be impressed. Everything is homemade and the ingredients are carefully selected, The shop has some lovely gifts and you are always afforded a warm welcome. If it's a special occasion you can always try the vintage afternoon teas. You can reserve a table too,... More

Didn't visit the castle (really a house) but the walk around the forest was nice, took about half an hour, nice little pond where people were fishing for trout. £8 to visit the house but doesn't look much from outside can't really commit whether it's worth it or not.

Has a little Xmas fare here every year, quite a good time to go and see the castle and things in it. Has a nice coffee shop with great home bakes. Not to expensive for a day out.

The building doesn't look like a castle, more like a large tall house. Inside are many rooms on different levels furnished with original furniture and paintings. You do not have a guided tour but there is information in each room explaining the life of the family. The cafe served lovely tea and scones!

This castle was almost left to ruin but the last Laird decided to proof the professionals that it could be restored. Now run by a trust it seems a little run down but lots to see. The Gem is the Cafe which served nice drinks and cakes. Think also did light meals. Prices very reasonable. Tour is unescorted and in... More

After reading several glowing reviews I booked a family stay at Delgatie Castle, we stayed in Elmwood. After a 12 hour car journey and expecting 4 star accommodation we were greeted by a grubby, worn out stable conversion. The date 1983 appears on the outside, this was probably the last time that it was cleaned. The plates etc all dirty.... More
