Tour Kellie Castle

Kellie Castle

Situated three miles north of Pittenweem in the East Neuk of Fife, Kellie Castle largely dates from the 16th and early 17th centuries.

Mentioned in charter of David I c.1150, Kellie was owned by the Oliphant family from 1360 to 1613 when it was purchased by Sir Thomas Erskine a childhood friend of James VI who created him Earl of Kellie. Restored by the Lorimer family who bought the castle in the 19th century, the building contains magnificent plaster ceilings, painted panelling and furniture designed by Sir Robert Lorimer. The castle and its organic walled-garden were acquired by the National Trust for Scotland in 1970.
