We had coffee and scones here today and it was lovely. Very good value and pleasant service. So many bits and pieces in the Lairds Kitchen

Awful place. Dirty, smells musty and damp. Tea room is a joke! Portions ridiculously small and service poor. Don't waste your time visiting. Also don't visit unless you have a 4x4...the road is full of huge potholes!

I usually only write reviews of attractions when there is something wrong with them which needs putting right, or it is a place which deserves greater public support. Delgatie Castle falls into the latter category. Visited it yesterday, and it is full of interest, with...More
