Definitely a fantastic place for people who loves historical things, also who wouldn't love a castle! The place is fairly free to explore, you can even climb up to the top of the castle to get a magnificent view of the surroundings. The castle is...More

Love this place! It's great for photos, the toilets are decent, the entrance fee is RM5 for locals and RM10 for foreigners. It's worth a visit if you haven't been there before. It's really educative. Keep in mind that it's pretty hot in there so...More

What a great place to visit. Built by William Kellie Smith of Dallas, Moray, Scotland. Unfinished enchanting and complex Scottish colonial history. Restored in recent years this is an excellent local tourist attraction which we loved because its founder originates from a part of the...More

Very nice place to explore during the day(not on a hot day). There's a lot of history and stories about the place. If visiting with young kids, please keep a close watch, as the place could be quite dangerous, especially the stairs and upper floor...More

Is located near clearwater resort batu gajah, no public transport available at this moment. You will need to buy ticket to enter. You can spend 1 hr to explore the structural and the history of the castle. It is a great place to take photo.

This is an interesting reminder of the colonial period. As the brochure says this is a testament to the broken dreams of Mr Kellie. It is well preserved and presented.

Easiest way is to take a taxi. There is a bus coming in this area but it's a long and tedious journey despite not far from Ipoh.

The easiest way is take a taxi from Ipoh. Even if you take a bus to Batu Gajah town you still need a taxi to The castle as it's located a distance from the town.
