The oldest part of the castle dates from 1634. The main part was completed in 1795 by Robert Paterson, previously clerk of works to the celebrated Robert Adam.  

Monzie Castle is a large castellated mansion which incorporates a small early 17th-century L-plan tower house, much extended and remodelled in 1791. It was a property of the Campbells from early times until 1869, when it was sold to the Johnstones of Lathrisk. 

In 1908 a serious fire took hold of the castle with only the outside walls remaining. The leading Scottish architect of the day, Sir Robert Lorimer was instructed to restore the castle. His lifelong affinity with traditional Scottish architecture saw him encourage and develop a number of Edinburgh craftsmen and workshops, whose work is on display as part of a harmonious piece of design.

The house is an exceptional example of Sir Robert Lorimer's architecture, interior design including furniture.


We are passionate believers in the idea of a living estate, as more than the sum of its parts. We want to continue and develop Monzie’s reputation for quality produce, craftsmanship and visitor experiences, accessible to all.  We proudly offer luxury self-catering accommodations in several cottages across the estate.
