Castle is an amazing historic building, lots to see, but would benefit from better presentation. Rooms were dusty and untidy and approach to castle was scruffy and depressing. A very interesting place though, just more care needed. Cafe and shop are very nive, however.

Tucked away just outside Turriff, this 16th century castle is well worth a visit. Its history and restoration story are fasconating.Has an excellent restaurant and nice woodland walks too

A group of 9 visited Delgatie for a tour and afternoon tea, as a birthday treat. After being allowed to explore the castle at our leisure, Joan and her staff provided the most excellent and friendly afternoon tea, including birthday cake. Nothing was too much...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.
