Kellie Castle is a very fine example of the domestic architecture of Lowland Scotland. The oldest part is believed to date from 1360, but the building in its present form is mainly 16th and early 17th century and was completed about 1606.

Sympathetically restored by the Lorimer family around 1878, it contains magnificent plaster ceilings, painted panelling and furniture designed by Sir Robert Lorimer. Video.

The layout of the organic walled garden is late Victorian and contains a fine collection of old fashioned roses, fruit trees and herbaceous plants. Display in summerhouse on history of walled garden.
