This is our second visit to this castle in past 4 years. This place is not part of historic Scotland so rely on visitors to survive. The castle is not massive but is very interesting all the same. Interesting pictures and furniture are in place....More

First visit to Delgatie today. We didn't get near the castle as the sign on the track up to it said 'Guide dogs only'. Since it was a mild day, I had hoped that perhaps it would be possible to have coffee and a cake...More

Sadly would not return to this event or the castle, despite living locally. £5 entry fee for my 15 month old daughter came as a bit of a surprise, I expected to pay that for myself but for a toddler was unreasonable. The Lairds Kitchen...More

Delgatie is just one of those places you can’t help going back to as the staff are genuinely helpful and the food is fantastic, especially the Cullen Skink and all of the home bakeries!!

We stayed at the castle so visited as a result. There is some fascinating history in the castle; Mary Queen of Scots stayed here once. It is nicely laid out, though as the exhibits all go up the central tower, it is quite difficult for...More

I loved this castle, especially the doll house collection and children's rooms. It's also manageable, even with a winding staircase. Nice tea room and gift shop as well.

Yes - I would think so. When we visited, there was a group of 8 women arrived. They were expected and a table had been set out for them with a special afternoon tea selection.
