Carlowrie Castle was built in 1852 for Thomas Hutchison, a wine merchant and at one time Lord Provost of Edinburgh, and his wife Jean Wylie.
Their daughter, Isobel Wylie Hutchison, became a pioneering Arctic traveller and author, risking her life collecting plants for the Royal Botanic Gardens and Kew. After World War II, Isobel’s writing helped finance repairs to the castle which had been badly damaged acting as a wartime RAF base.
Isobel’s legacy can be seen across the Carlowrie Estate. She planted many plants in the grounds, including rare species that she brought back from her travels.
On the death of Isobel in 1982, Carlowrie Castle was bought by the Marshall family and remains with them today.
