Our visit to Kellie Castle was both delightful and educational. When you approach the castle, outwardly you could easily be in the grounds of a chateau in the valley of the Loire, as there are numerous similarities. On entering, we were given a very warm...More

Many thanks for your 5 star review! Hopefully we might see you again on a dry day, when you have time to visit the tea room and gardens too? Thanks again. with best wishes,

Guided tours finish at 1230 so if you want the full tour with a guide you need to be there in the morning. It is worth while doing that to get to know the full history of the castle.

Interesting visit and lovely walled gardens, being visited by artists while we were there. The sculpture exhibition was closed while we were there, but we did see the artists attic which was impressive. Loved the children’s rooms with the well preserved toys.More

I don't think so and the website will clarify. You approach the front entrance on LHS of castle and go past it to the gate in the wall. There is a suggested donation box. Enjoy!
