NEW! Auchleven Castle in Scotland

about the property

A great Scottish castle, near Aberdeen as a fabulous destination for family celebrations or friends to get together.

This 15th Centuary Castle is sheltered witin 30 acres of its own parkland and is a beautiful example of a Medieval tower house built to a simple L-plan on three storeys, a garret and stone turnpike circular stairway and turrets. A further wing was added in the 18th Centuary.

This lovely castle is a great venue for family gatherings, reunions and birthday celebrations. There are two snugs with fireplaces to cosy next to on Winter evenings, there is a magnificent dinning room with grand antique table easily seating fourteen guests and for less formal occasions there is an open plan kitchen with dining table.

It boasts seven delightful bedrooms all with en suite bathrooms (one fourposter), some are even tucked away in turrets! 

Walks from 'your' doorstep are spectacular, there are 30 acres of private parkland to roam. Access to the iconic landmark, Bennachie, is possible from the castle grounds. Alternatively a short drive will take you to the Rowantree carpark allowing access to the Pictish hill fort on the top of  Bennachie...an excellent walk.

This beautiful Scottish castle has to be on your bucket list!
