MorleyDNA has a tool for the Y-haplogroup:

That’s for the paternal line only, and it will only give a prediction of a high-level group. The prediction could still be wrong, and the group will probably have formed many thousands of years ago.

I don’t think you can infer a maternal haplogroup from an Ancestry test, because I don’t think they measure any of your mitochondrial DNA

You can not identify a haplogroup from Ancestry. They only do autosomal testing. You would need to do either a, MtDNA and/or YDNA tests to identify your haplogroups. You have a haplogroup from both your maternal and paternal lines.

They test a small number of Y-SNPs as well, which is what the Morley tool uses to make the prediction

This is the first I have heard of that. Interesting, and there was a previous discussion about this "Can you get YDNA from Ancestry" in G2G.
