Funnily, this morning I'd sent a friend a link to a property I saw for sale near her home in Campbeltown, Scotland. Then when I was buzzing through the New York Times on-line, I found another Scottish property for sale, this one a wee bit more expensive (like several millions more).
The property is called Ackergill Castle and it's only been owned by three families over the past 500 years! It has 17 bedrooms and a stellar view over the Wick Bay. The place does need a bit of an updating, and it's currently used as a 'business center'. It's only three miles from the town of Wick, which is miles from anywhere else! But there's a whisky distillery in the town!
Regardless, I'll take it!
