We’re delighted to have been chosen as finalists in the Rural Business of the Year (Small / Medium) category at the upcoming Herald Family Business Awards.

This category recognises the vital role that businesses play in providing employment and wealth in the rural communities in which they operate.

Seonaid started Castlegate nearly 27 years ago, and was joined by Christine 12 years ago, ensuring that Castlegate has continued as an important element of the local community. We have educated and cared for1000s of children through the years and are a significant local employeer – building a staff team who we feel are our Castlegate family.

Both Seonaid and Christine will be attending the awards night on 4 December in Glasgow to represent their own family and commitment to the community through Castlegate, but importantly to represent our wider Castlegate family who we are so proud of!
