With property in London regularly reaching into the millions, at a time when a parking space could set you back £350,000, it could be worth making the move to the north and looking at castles.
Moving to Scotland could be a culture shock, but unlike in Game of Thrones where everyone is getting as south as possible (for good reason), winter isn’t coming – and a castle in the most northern part of the UK could be a wonderful investment.
Here are 5 beautiful castles for sale at the moment on savills.com, with one for sale at under £1 million – bargain! Just make sure you can afford the upkeep.
