Planning your visit

We want you to enjoy your visit to Kellie Castle – your safety is our priority. This means we’ve had to make some changes so that we can keep everyone safe. Please read our Guide on what to expect before you set off.

We’d love you to visit the Euan’s Guide website to review the accessibility of Trust places and tell us (and others) what’s good and where we need to do better.

Picnics

Run wild in the woodlands and discover the adventure playground.

Find out all about life in the castle from our knowledgeable, friendly staff and volunteers.

This year we’ve been reorganising the castle’s rooms! There’ll be some different items in different places, some items that haven’t been seen before, and some old favourites that might have a new place. See if you can spot the changes.

Explore three bespoke ‘touch books’ relating to the furniture, plasterwork and embroidery found throughout the castle. You can also add a stitch to our Kellie embroidery, which adds another thread to Kellie’s history.

Visit the shop, where you can purchase a memorable souvenir.

Toilets open 10.00-15.30.

Take the opportunity to explore our beautiful walled garden and woodland walk, where dogs are welcome.

The ground floor of the castle is wheelchair accessible, as are the shop, tearoom, toilets and garden. A wheelchair is also available.
