5 Star Visitor Attraction
Delgatie Castle is much the product of decades of work and dedication by the late Captain John Hay of Delgatie. The building he purchased in the early 1950s was effectively a derelict ruin.
Captain Hay died at the age of 91 in 1997 and left the castle and estate to the Delgatie Castle Trust. Their role is to maintain Delgatie as it was during the Captain’s life. The result is a building of immense character: less a pristine showroom than somewhere that has a charming “lived in” feel.
Delgatie has tremendous character and a distinct sense of history. This combined with its picturesque setting makes it an ideal stopping place for visitors wishing to experience Scotland.
