The Rise, Fall and Rise of Kellie Castle – A re-evaluation of its early history

The Rise, Fall and Rise of Kellie Castle – A re-evaluation of its early history Located north of Pittenweem in the East Neuk of Fife, Kellie Castle - a property in the ownership of the National Trust for Scotland since 1970 - was for nearly a century beforehand in the occupation of the Lorimer family. While much of Kellie's attraction has been its unspoiled preservation, and its connection with the Lorimers, this paper outlines research being undertaken to re-evaluate the early social, political and architectural history of the castle during the seventeenth century. This paper also considers the particular role Kellie may have played in influencing and advancing the development of decorative plasterwork in seventeenth-century Scotland, as well as its influence on plasterwork in the early twentieth century. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Architectural Heritage Edinburgh University Press

Abstract

Located north of Pittenweem in the East Neuk of Fife, Kellie Castle - a property in the ownership of the National Trust for Scotland since 1970 - was for nearly a century beforehand in the occupation of the Lorimer family. While much of Kellie's attraction has been its unspoiled preservation, and its connection with the Lorimers, this paper outlines research being undertaken to re-evaluate the early social, political and architectural history of the castle during the seventeenth century. This paper also considers the particular role Kellie may have played in influencing and advancing the development of decorative plasterwork in seventeenth-century Scotland, as well as its influence on plasterwork in the early twentieth century.
