Former home of Mary Queen of Scots, Delgatie Castle has added two new awards to their retinue after winning in two categories at the Scottish Café Awards.

Located in Turriff, Aberdeenshire and dating from 1030, Delgatie Castle is steeped in history while still retaining all the atmosphere of a home. It features some of the finest painted ceilings in Scotland and visitors can visit the bedchamber of Mary Queen of Scots as part of the castle’s guided tours. The castle has won numerous awards over the years including Best Visitor Experience and Scottish Home Baking Award Winner, with two more now added after winning at the Scottish Café Awards.

The Scottish Café Awards are a national award scheme that recognises the best in coffee shops, tea rooms, cafés and dessert shops in Scotland. The awards are all voted for by the public and nominees were invited to an elegant ceremony in Glasgow at the end of June.

The Laird’s Kitchen at Delgatie Castle was named winner in both the Best Café Team and the Best Visitor Attraction categories. Speaking about the awards, organisers from the Scottish Café Awards said: “We are honoured by the fantastic response we have had from the public who were so keen to vote for their favourite cafés. […] It was lovely to be part of this celebration and we would like to congratulate all finalists and winners for their achievements.”

The Laird’s Kitchen tearoom at Delgatie Castle is open every day serving delicious food and home backs, as well take away options, such as Afternoon Tea boxes, cakes or scones. Find out more about Delgatie Castle and book your visit today here.
