Called into Kellie Castle & Garden purely by chance. Free admission as we’re English National Trust members so that was a bonus. Enjoyed the woodland walk around the castle and called into the cafe for Afternoon Tea. Great service, absolutely fabulous apple scones.

The garden was relatively small for such a grand building. There was lots of car parking and an attractive walk around the estate.

I think the reviewer who posted 'much ado about nothing' must have got out of bed the wrong side! We thoroughly enjoyed our very informative guided tour of Kellie Castle, as did the others in our group as guide Niall received a well-deserved round of...More
