Kellie Castle & Garden

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.

This property is part of the ‘We’re Good to Go’ scheme, which means we have carried out an official COVID-19 risk assessment to check we have everything in place to reopen safely.

Please be aware that for the health and safety of visitors, volunteers and employees in our hospitality venues, we will record the name and contact details of everyone who enters in order to support NHS Scotland’s Test and Protect. This information will be used to enable NHS Scotland to contact you should you have been in the venue around the same time as someone who has tested positive for coronavirus. We are obliged to process this data to comply with The Health Protection (Coronavirus) (Restrictions) (Scotland) Amendment (No. 11) Regulations 2020. Please see our Data Protection page for further information.

Further to this, in National Trust for Scotland non-hospitality settings, where there is either a pre-booking system in place or there is the potential for close contact (eg in some of our smaller properties), we will ask visitors to provide limited contact information. This is for the purposes of managing the number of visitors and also to support NHS Scotland’s Test and Protect. For further information, please see our Data Protection page.


For information about planning your visit, please see the drop-down facilities below or our frequently asked questions.

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.
