Clan Hay Centre

Your picture here

Delgatie Castle is the Clan Hay Centre. It was touching for the Chief to talk of the enthusiasm of the late Capt. Hay who worked assiduously on behalf of the Clan Hay. His sole porpose and determination in restoring Delgatie Castle was to ensure it stayed as the Clan Hay Centre for future generations.


Delgatie Castle is open to the public every day from 10a.m. to 5p.m. and the history of the house is combined with the feel of a much loved home restored over many years by the late Capt. Hay and his wife Everild. Capt. Hay wanted the castle to be kept as his home and the Trustees of the Delgatie Castle Trust to continue to carry out his wishes.

We look forward to the your return next year...
