This place is fabulous! I always stop here when visiting family in the area its a small castle that is still in its original condition when still occupied until a few years ago. The cafe serves typical local food served with a modern twist, Jean the lady who looks after the whole place is lovely. Recommend a visit here to... More

Had a lovely time at the castle. History surrounding it was extraordinary and well described. Finished visit with trip to tea room which is obligatory. We had lunch and desert which wasn't cheap but worth it for a treat Well worth a visit!!

I cannot rate this magical place highly enough . Set amidst beautiful acres of Scottish countryside this ancient castle lies . Not commercially driven or marketed wildly but simply understated and brilliant because of its simplicity . You can stay in rooms here and the Tearoom is set in the Castle kitchens called the Lairds Kitchen. The lady that runs... More

Decided to visit for a spot of lunch as we had heard good reports about this place. We entered and made our way to the "Laird's Kitchen". We seated ourselves at one of the tables and waited to be served. And waited. And waited. Eventually we got fed up being ignored and left. Now, had it been busy, we may... More

I took my family who came up from England here. We had been before and the service was ok but not great. However, upon this visit the service was atrocious. The lady took our order and we waited and our meal came and then the lady serving rudly asked "do you want drinks" ummm this is a COFFEE shop! We... More

Off the beaten track but a lovely lovely place. Joan, her daughter and son in law were friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the place. We only stopped for a quick visit and morning tea - the coffee and cake is very good. Being part of the Hay Clan I enjoyed it immensly

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
