Buyers of this Perthshire property will get more than just a family home – they’ll also take ownership of the derelict castle in its garden.
While the seven-bedroom house is ready to be moved into, the neighbouring Culdees Castle is in need of a complete renovation. Built in 1810, and last inhabited in 1968, the building has fallen into disrepair, with greenery growing through the stonework and around its turrets.
The castle’s spiral stone staircase remains intact, but much of the building is derelict – although photos of its glory days show intricate panelling, moulding and fireplaces, which could potentially be restored by new owners.
Well-manicured lawns surround the pair of buildings – listed with Galbraith for £730k – reached via a tree-lined drive. The village of Muthill is close by, as is the town of Auchterarder, and several scenic walking routes and golf courses.
