A very welcoming visit to a castle with great heritage. The only downside for me was the lack of options in the cafe for coeliacs. Other than that I would recommend this as a great day out in a rural castle.

This was a refreshing change from the usual, very neat but soulless, feel of many National Trust properties. The renovation is a work in progress, the gardens have yet to be revived, but Delgatie Castle is welcoming, friendly and interesting. The personal notes in the...More

This castle has the tower house open for visitors. Very interesting history and a much more personal experience with the notes written by the owner in the visitor rooms. A bit of a French touch and ceiling beams in some rooms are very interesting. Love...More

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.
