The Kilmahew Education Trust


The Kilmahew Estate is emerging from having been abandoned for over 40 years. The mainly Victorian Pleasure Gardens Infrastructure is centred around the now demolished Kilmahew House which once stood at the heart of the iconic Brutalist 'Behemoth in the Woods' that is St. Peter's Seminary. To the north we have the scheduled ancient monument of Kilmahew Castle with 16th and 18th Century construction but a history as far back as 1290 with the Napier Clan. Centrally we have John Fleming's Walled Gardens of 1866 and just above this point is the former Georgian Steading known as the 'Triangle of Milndovan'. Our entire Eastern border, heading north east towards Loch Lomond is a site of interest for nature conservation (SINC) and we have three deep ravine burns cutting through the lush landscape in the form of Kilmahew, Wallacetown and Auchenfroe Burns, In 2020 we took over the whole Estate and have slowly built our film and events location facilities whereby we recently supported a Bollywood Movie and recorded traditional Scottish Folk singers in the former chapel. A Creative Industries Hub is in the planning phase and we are carrying our R&D on culture and architecture assets. We are interested in cultural collaborations.
