Scots Castle belonging in ‘Disney film’ and has 40 rooms goes up for sale

A grand Scottish castle evoking a Disney film has hit the property market in a one-of-a-kind listing.

The architectural gem, built in the Scottish Baronial style hailing from the late 18th century, is as massive as it is majestic.

Orchardton Castle in Auchencairn boasts 40 rooms including a whopping 20 bedrooms and 15 bathrooms.

You could be king of the castle for the right price, and to be exact, the sellers are accepting offers over £1,700,000.

The price for this sort of luxury is no joke, but what do you expect for a place with 30 working fireplaces?

Along with five acres of grounds at your footsteps, you’ll get to drink in the breathtaking views of the Solway Coast plus access to a private beach.

The dream home extends over four floors and its large windows throughout welcome a flood of natural light.

The listing says the current owners of the property continue to lovingly restore it with new windows and decor although some areas still require some TLC.
