Dornoch Castle

%VIRTUAL-SkimlinksPromo%Not all properties are the same. In fact, many of the flats and houses coming up for sale in the UK every week are downright bizarre.

That doesn't mean they won't make beautiful, happy homes, though. This week, we take a closer look at a B-listed castle currently on the market in Dornoch, Scotland.

Imposing Dornoch Castle was built for the Bishop of Sutherland in the 15th century. Since then, it has been a private residence, a school, a jail and a hotel.

Now called the Dornoch Castle Hotel, it is nevertheless described on property website Rightmove as a 25-bedroom detached house.

The accommodation provided at Dornoch Castle includes 25 bedrooms, 25 bathrooms and three reception rooms.

The castle also benefits from stunning gardens and has plenty of parking space.

Pros and cons
This stunning castle has been converted into a 25-bedroom hotel - perfect if you want to run a commercial enterprise, but perhaps less so if you are looking for an opulent family home.

Local legend also has it that the castle is haunted by the ghost of a sheep rustler, which may put some people off but could even attract others.
