The Castle is falling apart, the interior is very poor and therefore the price for entering(£8) is way overrated. Also no photo allowed, which is not fair for this price. And they asking for "generous donation" on a box on your way out. It would be ok for £3/ head. Sorry, but that's how I feel like after visiting.

We are just back from our 13th annual visit to Delgatie – staying in Hayfield for a week in July every year since a significant birthday in 2002. Never has anything been less than perfect: the accommodation is wonderful, the Castle is wonderful, the grounds are amazing. Over the years we have invited friends from Scotland, England, France, America to... More

The castle is imposing and impressively set in a beautiful location. It contains many fascinating and important historical artefacts as well as a nice little gift shop. The Laird's Kitchen cafe is welcoming and its staff are very pleasant. The carrot cake is highly recommended but the (supposedly renowned) scones were just average. Our main concern is that the castle... More

We spent our 20th Anniversary (6 nights) in the Symbister Suite. The suite was spacious, spotless, warm, and welcoming. The food served in the Laird's Kitchen is delicious and is certainly deserving of the 2013 Scottish Homebaking Award (Best Customer Service)! Joan and Donna are generous, accommodating hosts. They made us feel right at home. In fact, everyone we met... More

We stayed in the Elmwood Suite which is adapted for wheelchair use which means there is bags of space. The kitchen is enormous and has everything you could possibly need for a family holiday. The accommodation is very comfortable with lovely sofas and pretty floral furnishings and pictures. Although the holiday cottages are part of the original stables and back... More

We have just spent a fantastic morning looking round the castle, one of the nicest day trips we've had in a long time. The castle is absolutely fascinating and everything a castle should be - lots of history, hidden secret passages and stories of hidden rooms.  We particularly liked the fact that it isn't presented in an overly sanitised way...

The nearly 1,000 year-old Delgatie Castle has been associated with Clan Hay for almost 700 hundred of those years. As someone with strong Clan Hay affiliations, the opportunity to stay several nights in the castle was a truly memorable experience. This is not a fairy-tale type castle with turrets and battlements. Rather, it is a very good example of a... More
