Beautiful house and gardens. Would go back definitely to visit the walled gardens. Went on the optional guided tour - incredibly informative but maybe a bit too much and very long. Not one for younger children! Nice little tea shop as well.

Walked the three miles from Pittenweem and had lovely coffee and scones in the tea room. Very helpful guides and beautiful gardens. Well worth a visit.

Love the gardens at Kellie - always seem to look good whenever you visit. Interesting history. Early in the day tours are guided only.

I don't think so and the website will clarify. You approach the front entrance on LHS of castle and go past it to the gate in the wall. There is a suggested donation box. Enjoy!
