Notes: Delgatie Castle is a castle near Turriff, in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. A castle has stood on the site of Delgatie Castle since the year 1030 AD, although the earliest parts of the castle standing today were built between 1570 and 1579. Additional wings and a chapel were added in 1743.Like many castles, Delgatie is rumoured to be haunted. A number of reports of a ghostly red-haired figure, supposedly one Alexander Hay, were made by soldiers posted there during the Second World War. Today, the castle and its gardens are owned by the Delgatie Castle Trust. The castle, grounds, and cafe are open to the public throughout the summer months and suites within the castle itself and a number of cottages the estate are available to rent.
