Kellie Castle

Kellie Castle

Medieval atmosphere meets Victorian style at Kellie Castle. The oldest parts date back to the 14th century, but the whole interior was overhauled in the late 19th century by the Lorimers, a famous artistic family.

Crow-stepped gables and fairytale stone towers form the outer frame, while indoors elaborate plaster ceilings and painted panelling lie alongside fine furniture designed by Sir Robert Lorimer, who spent much of his childhood at Kellie.

Outside, take a wander through the Arts & Crafts garden with its magnificent herbaceous borders, filled with the heavy scent of old roses, along with fruit and vegetables which are all grown organically.

 

  • Discover how the castle was saved from ruin in the late 19th century by a family of architects and artists.

  • Breathe in the heady scents in the Arts & Crafts garden, filled with the fragrance of old roses.

  • Admire the majestic library ceiling – one of the oldest ornamental plaster ceilings in Scotland.

  • Discover the long-concealed mural by Phoebe Anna Traquair.

  • Visit the stables, where there’s an exhibition on sculptor Hew Lorimer’s life and see his sculpture studio.

Glenfinnan Church

Glenfinnan Church is nestled on the hill overlooking Loch Shiel and the Glenfinnan monument with the Viaduct just across the road. It's such a cute, quaint wee village. The church is a memorial chapel to the MacDonalds of Glenaladale, the family with whom Bonnie Prince Charlie stayed prior to the raising of the Jacobite standard in August 1745.

Blackness Castle

Blackness Castle is a 15th-century fortress, near the village of Blackness, Scotland, on the south shore of the Firth of Forth. It was built, probably on the site of an earlier fort, by Sir George Crichton in the 1440s.
