One of Scotland's most significant and historic castles, in a gorgeous countryside location, on sale for over £3m
Brechin Castle stands proud on a massive bluff of rocks above the banks of the River South Esk, in the beautiful county of Angus.
On the site of a much older fortress belonging to the Scottish Kings, the present house was last reconstructed in the early 1700s and incorporates part of the original castle dating back to the 13th century. The building has evolved from a defensive role to its present great house style and, despite its size, lends itself well to being both a family home and hosting large gatherings.
The castle retains many period details going back hundreds of years, including striking ironwork balustrades on the main staircase which were installed in 1659, and a ceiling dating back to 1797.
There are about 70 acres in total, including the renowned walled garden, and, in addition to the castle, which has eight reception rooms, 16 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, there are two gate lodges and three further houses and cottages, as well as an estate courtyard with exciting conversion possibilities.
On the market with Savills for offers over £3,000,000, more details of the fascinating history of this stunning castle can be found HERE.
