Castle Grant in Moray, with an asking price of £1.1 million, has been snapped up after only 12 days on the market!

An L-plan tower of the 16th century it was radically altered in the 18th and only a wing and parapet of the old castle remain visible.

The castle has had a checkered history and at one time had fallen into a semi-ruinous state.

Ackergill Tower

NEWS Ackergill Tower

Ackergill Tower

The same day it was announced that Ackergill Tower in Caithness has re-opened after an £1million refurbishment following a fire. Ackergill is the only 5 star hotel in Caithness and noted for its celebratory visitors.

It is a massive 15th century tower house of 5 stories with 10 feet thick walls. It had a 'make over' in the 19th century which was not to its advantage but it still manages to convey an air of strength and beauty.
