About Kellie's Castle

Hidden deep in the Malaysian jungle, Kellie's Castle was built by a Scottish rubber plantation owner called William Kellie-Smith. Construction began in 1915 and came to a halt in 1926 when Smith died of pneumonia. Today the ruined mansion offers a glimpse of Malaysia's colonial past and the life of William Kellie-Smith.

The castle is set beside the Raya River and combines a handful of architectural styles, including Moorish, Indo-Saracenic and Roman. The result is an eclectic building featuring turrets, towers and arched windows. See some of the rooms that have been restored and furnished with lavish 20th-century antiques. Explore the secret passageways and climb up to the upper floors for sweeping views over the jungle.

There's speculation that the ghost of William Kellie-Smith haunts the ruined castle, with some guests reporting sightings of supernatural figures in the windows. There are also rumours the castle was used as a Japanese prison camp in the 1940s, which adds to its mysterious atmosphere.
