The Laird's Kitchen
Delgatie Castle dates from 1030, and is a four-star visitor attraction, with suits of armour and many tales of derring-do throughout the ages – Mary Queen of Scots stayed for three nights, and her room is on display. After all that history though, you might feel a little peckish, and The Laird’s Kitchen is the perfect place to refuel. Recently refurbished, and winner of awards for their tea and home-baking, the Kitchen offers fresh homemade soups, sandwiches and delicious cakes. Great for a quick, hearty lunch (you don’t have to tour the castle first), you can also line up something more refined with a vintage afternoon tea on the menu every Thursday. Treats fit for a king – or queen.
