One of the most interesting Perak attractions is Kellie’s Castle which is located about 40 km away from Ipoh, on the outskirts of a small town called Batu Gajah.
This castle was meant to be a home away from home for Scottish Planter, William Kellie Smith in the 20th century.
Some say he built this castle because, being far from home, he desired his new residence to be reminiscent of his home back in Scotland and some even say this castle was built as a castle of love for his wife Agnes, whom he brought to Perak somewhere around 1903.
Work on the castle started in 1915, but was unfortunately halted a few years later with Kellie’s sudden death due to pneumonia and because of that, this castle was never completed. The castle, with hidden rooms and a secret tunnel, is a building filled with mysteries and stories of romance.
