Information

Although records of the estate date back to 1150, the oldest part of Kellie Castle dates from 1360, when it was owned by Walter Oliphant. The property remained in the family until it was sold in 1613 by the 5th Lord Oliphant, and it was later owned by the Earls of Kellie. Having been abandoned for many years, it was leased from 1878 and later purchased in 1957 by the Lorimer family who restored it as their family home. The castle was bought by the National Trust for Scotland in 1970.
