Leslie Castle is for sale – and there's a Barony on offer too!

Five-storey Leslie Castle, near Insch in Aberdeenshire, with its seven bedrooms, six bathrooms – and an optional Barony on offer – is for sale for offers over £650,000.

It was one of the last old castles to be built in Scotland, being constructed as late as 1661. The style is very much that of an earlier medieval castle with only the sloped gables and diagonally set chimneys giving a clue to its true dale.

In 1997, the Scottish Castles Association visited Leslie Castle and had the pleasure of being shown round by the owners who had been living in the castle following its magnificent restoration from a ruin by previous owners in the 1980s.

At the time we noted: Leslie is a Z-plan castle with a square Scale and Platt tower in the re-entrant angle. The stair rises around a square central column, which is hollow with a slit on each flight of stairs. At the top of the tower is a wheel, suspended from this would have been a chain holding candles which would have illuminate the stairs.
