Scotland’s Smallest Castle Up For Grabs


For about a tenth of the cost of a Manhattan apartment you could buy the smallest castle in Scotland and live the life with bluebell woodlands, vegetable plot and fruit orchard.

Built in the 17th century, Bath Castle is a charming B listed property built on a rocky outcrop and constructed from stone with harled elevations beneath a pantile roof with crow-stepped gables The castle is widely considered to be one of the smallest in Scotland. It was restored in the mid 1980’s with a grant from Historic Scotland and has been further modernised in recent years.

The castle is divided into 4 rooms with a bathroom which has a cast iron roll top bath and has a tremendous amount of character. The kitchen/breakfast room offers a good range of bespoke and hand crafted floor and wall units by Crannog with Neff appliances, a walk-in larder cupboard and an LPG gas fired Rayburn. A stable door provides access out to a west facing terrace as well as bringing additional light into the room. The second room on the ground floor has an exposed stone arched hearth and could be used as either a dining room or a second bedroom.

A spiral staircase is overlooked by a bluebell stained glass window and leads up to the sitting room on the first floor which has an exposed stone hearth with wood burning stove. The master bedroom leads off this room with an en-suite shower room and views to three sides of the property. There is access into the floored loft by a Ramsay ladder from the bedroom.
