There seem to be an awful lot of castles for sale lately, but none up to this point have had 32 bedrooms, 31 bathrooms, a pub, six cottages,  Europe’s largest “treehouse,” 30 acres of land, and a lease of shooting and fishing rights over the nearly 3,000 adjoining acres of land on the far northern tip of Scotland.

Ackergill Tower was first constructed in 1475 and existed in that original state until the mid-19th century when Scottish Architect David Bryce expanded and extended the building into roughly what it appears to be today. However, it wasn’t until the 1980s and 2000s that Ackergill Tower was finally fully restored to its full luxurious old-world grandeur with its many halls, bedrooms, and public spaces.
