In 1900 the Lorimer's added the summer house to the garden. A curious bird like creature perches on the roof, stone signature of their architect son,Sir Robert Lorimer.
When the National Trust for Scotland took over Kellie in the 1970's they put their own inimitable stamp on the garden; it has to be said, to great effect. At the beginning of August, after the roses have gone over, such is the skill of the gardeners at Kellie it remained utterly enchanting.
Hew Lorimer, the celebrated Scottish sculptor, and his wife Mary were the last members of the family to live at Kellie. Hew's studio is preserved at the end of the stable block.
