A NORTH-EAST castle could be yours – if you’ve got a spare £4.5 million to spend.
Historic Hatton Castle, a Grade-A listed property, has been put on the market for the first time in 300 years.
The five-storey mansion near Turriff has been put up for sale for offers over £4.5m.
Owned by the 12th Laird of Hatton, David James-Duff, and his wife Jayne, it has been passed down for generations by Duff family members since 1709.
Historic Scotland has classified the structure’s historical and architectural elements as ‘outstanding’.
The castle has a rich history, and has even hosted celebrities such as Michael Flatley.
The Lord of the Dance caused a stir in 1999 when he turned up at Aberdeen International Airport on his way for a stay at the castle with his friend Laird Duff.
The star was spotted at Buckley’s Bar in Turriff during his visit.
The castle has been kept as a family home for hundreds of years, with a basement which incorporates a wine cellar, gun room, boot room and further storage areas.
The 14th Century estate holds another 10 properties, including the chauffeur’s house and garage which has two stables, two reception rooms and room for up to two cars.
