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.

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

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.

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.
