Called here for morning coffee in the Lairds Kitchen and were won over by the enthusiasm of the staff so decided to return later in our holiday to have a look round. Really interesting place - what a climb to the top rooms though!

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.

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. I took my whole family full of teenagers and was told I cannot pay for the family ticket which would have been abit... More
