Inchdrewer Castle / Banff, Aberdeenshire

Inchdrewer Castle is a Grade A listed 16th Century Castle and is believed to have been built in the early to mid 1500s. It was purchased by Sir Walter Ogilvie of Dunlugas in 1557 from the Curror family, then lived in by Lord Banff (until killed by a fire in the castle in 1713) and subsequently various other nobles until it was abandoned in the early 1900s.

It was bought by the current owners family in 1963 in a mainly ruinous state and restored to a wind and water tight condition by 1971. Sadly, no improvements have been made since, so deterioration has taken place.

The castle is sold with a title. You’ll be the Baron of Inchdrewer should you buy this place, which has got to make this potential Grand Design more appealing.

Of course, much depends on the price. That’s offers over £400,000 — via WowHaus
