Always dreamed of owning a statement house?

A beautiful pink castle has just gone on the market in Aberdeenshire – but you’ll need £1.5 million in the bank to get your hands on it.

The Grade A-listed property boasts four floors, including six large reception rooms, eight bedrooms, nine bathrooms (four of which are en suite) as well as a chapel, labyrinth and a swimming pool.

It also has a two-bedroom flat on the top floor, which the current owner has been using as their primary residence since 2017.

Outside, on the 35.67-acre estate, there’s plenty to enjoy, too. The castle’s grounds feature a labyrinth, a rose garden, a croquet lawn and a large walled garden – complete with an orchard.

There’s also a pavilion a short distance from the main house – built by an award-winning architect in 2018 – which is currently used for weddings and functions.

Over the years, numerous renovations have taken place to give the property a little extra finesse.

In the 1700s, a range of extensions were added which transformed the house into a grand Georgian country mansion – and a gothic tower was built in 1829.

What’s more, the property is dripping in history. In 1242, it was granted by King Alexander II to a Norman knight called Sir Walram de Normanville.

It’s also believed that the castle provided accommodation for Robert the Bruce (AKA – the king of Scotland between 1306-1329).

Many of the rooms pay homage to the house’s unique history, like the Great Hall – which includes period features, such as an open fireplace, intricate panelling and a medieval painted ceiling.
