Your Chance To Own Scotland’s Smallest Castle
If you’ve long dreamed of owning your own medieval castle but the thought of never ending maintenance, drafty accommodation and the odd ghost has put you off; then Bath Castle is the one for you.
Believed to be Scotland’s smallest castle the property has a long history dating back to around 1640 when King James VI erected it as a gift to Sir James Colville of East Wemyss for his services to the Crown. Nestled in a picturesque area of rural Fife, close to the conservation village of Culross, Bath Castle was fully restored in the mid 1980s and is now a very special residential home for sale through CKD Galbraith.
This absolutely charming B listed property is divided into two bedrooms with a dream bathroom which has a cast iron roll top bath and an abundance of character. The kitchen/breakfast room offers a superb range of bespoke and handcrafted features and units as well as a walk-in larder. There is a second room on the ground floor with a spectacular inglenook fireplace and could be used either as an impressive dining room or a second bedroom.
A spiral staircase, overlooked by a bluebell stained glass window, leads to the first floor sitting room which includes an exposed stone hearth with wood burning stove. Also on the first floor is the delightful master bedroom with an en-suite shower room and wonderful views to three sides of the property. There is also access from the bedroom up to the loft area which has been floored to be provide additional accommodation.
Dominic Webberburn, handling the sale for CKD Galbraith, said: “Although compact, Bath Castle has a tremendous amount of character and history and would make the perfect home for those looking for something a bit quirky. And of course who wouldn’t like to be able to say they own Scotland’s smallest castle!”
