The first records of Kellie Castle date back to the 12th century, and it was restored by James Lorimer in the late 19th century. It is a very fine example of Scottish domestic architecture with its gables, towers and chimneys. Among the contents are magnificent plaster ceilings, painted panelling and furniture designed by Sir Robert Lorimer, son of James Lorimer. In 1948 the castle was purchased by the sculptor Hew Lorimer, Sir Robert´s son, and now displays his work in the old stables. The garden includes a Victorian organic walled garden.
