Kellie’s Castle
Unlucky building that became a hideous ruin as soon as the construction was finished in 1915. However, with its excellent preserved state, addition of new decorations and secluded surroundings made the castle into the refined presence as we know today. The castle itself is not that big, but the structure is confusing. Secret passageways between rooms and the hidden entrance in the back of the castle makes it an interesting experience for the visitors.
