Castles for sale – level 3

24-03-2023 07:00

Anyone longing to become the Queen or King of their own castle need look no further than Scotland. Here, the fairytale is very much a reality, with around 10 properties offered every year.

Myres Castle is on the market for 4.3 million dollars and it isn’t far from renowned golfing club St. Andrews and less than an hour’s drive from the capital of Edinburgh. There are no cauldrons of boiling oil; however, you get 10 bedrooms, five reception rooms, and 45 acres of grounds complete with a hedge maze, a walled garden, and a tennis court. History lovers can shade under a tree that purportedly was planted by Mary Queen of Scots herself.

A dream Scottish castle could be yours; however, it’ll cost you. Around 10% of the purchase price per year is the absolute minimum for upkeep.

Difficult words: cauldron (a large metal pot used for cooking over an open fire), purportedly (allegedly), upkeep (maintenance and service).
