Bruce-link castle has its selling price cut
A castle on land once used for hunting by Robert – The Bruce has had its selling price slashed almost by half – from £1.7 million to under £900,000. The property, built in the 1860s and which has what may be the biggest stained glass window in a private UK home, is now on sale by Savills for £895,000.
The reason for the 47 per cent price cut remains unclear but experts have recently blamed the Scottish Government’s new land tax for damaging sales of high-end properties.
The current building was built by wine and spirit merchant John Aitken and the house became known locally at the time as “brandy castle”.
During the Second World War, the Royal Air Force used Dalmoak Castle as a local headquarters, where it partitioned the rooms, and erected Nissen huts in the grounds.
