A number of Scottish estates are currently on the market, including what is considered the most expensive, Kinpurnie, in Angus, above. It comes with a castle, six lochs and pheasant shooting and has gone on the market for the first time in over a century. But it also has a £29 million price tag.

It’s sale has generated world-wide interest, and the sellers are considering various offers following last month’s closing date. The 1,500-acre Invermarkie estate in Aberdeenshire, below, with a 5,000 sq ft period house and five cottages, is also up for sale for £4.77m.
