This is really worth visiting. The castle has opened after lockdown and the staff couldnt be more keen to open the doors again, whereas others nearby, possibly with easier access, have just stayed closed. The castle is an eccentric memory of Captain Hay, who repaired it himself with his wife. So its not the Disney version of a Scottish baronial castle, but the Scottish authentic one. Its lovely, faded charm, coupled with the enthusiastic team. Well worth a detour to visit, especially if you are getting ‘burned out’ by renovated castles! Adjacent is a huge forest with beautiful walks...dont miss those either.

One of the best and most unique and authentic visitor attractions in the North East. Not polished to death like your average National Trust for Scotland property, but cared for by a small independent trust who looks after this beautiful property with dedication and lots of love. The tearoom is excellent and especially the Cullen Skink and freshly made cakes are out of this world. The castle is quirky, full of personal history of the Clan Hay, but also a brilliant mirror of Scotland's history. A visit to this castle is a must for everyone who wants to get a little bit closer to understanding Scotland and its past.

OK so Captain Hay and his wife restored the castle but he has virtually turned it into mausoleum dedicated to his memory and that of his not very important family. Had hoped to get a coffee but cafe closed. Grounds in desparate need of TLC. There are several self catering units. Where it comes into its own is that kids are fascinated and it is open when all other attractions are closed..

Visited the Castle for the annual Christmas Fare. A lovely welcome by the owner included a mulled Wine. The castle was filled with craft stalls with lotd of nice goodies for sale. Most craft stall holders were dressed in traditional " victorian " dress. A verery pleasand afternoon.
