The Fife Coast: 3
Kellie Castle, Cambo Gardens and Hew Lorimer
Kellie Castle is situated near Arncroach, about 5 kilometres north of Pittenweem in Fife on the Scottish East coast.
The castle is one of fairytale stone towers and stepped gables. The oldest parts are 14th century, but much of the rest of was refurbished and added to in the late 19th century by the Lorimers, a famous artistic family. Indoors can be found elaborate plaster ceilings and painted panelling, together with fine furniture designed by Sir Robert Lorimer, who spent much of his childhood at Kellie.
Not far away, near to St.Andrews, is the Cambo Walled Gardens. This Victorian walled garden has been brought up to date with the introduction of lovely woodland walks leading beside a sparkling burn down to the nearby sea.
