A medieval castle at Auchtermuchty, in north Fife, Scotland, is for sale. It has ten bedrooms, beautiful walled gardens, and its own dungeon.

Myres Castle was first constructed in 1530 by John Scrymgeour and has been called a “rare jewel” with a rich history spanning hundreds of years. The castle was given to the Moncrieff family once John finished it, and in 1820 the King’s Printer bought it. James Fairlie, who had served as three popes’ chamberlain in Rome, purchased Myres Castle in 1870. James was the one who created a garden in the Vatican style.

The current structure is a large residence with ten bedrooms, ten bathrooms, a semi-permanent marquee at the bottom of the yard that is perfect for summer parties, and completely new plumbing, heating, and electrical work. The property also boasts a state-of-the-art Bio Mass Boiler.

The interior area is worthy of an aristocracy. Highlights include three kitchens, a wine cellar, a basement, a dining room, a billiards room, a family cozy, and a covered training pool heated by the Bio Mass Boiler. As if that weren’t enough, there’s also a custom shepherd’s hut with a kitchen, a sitting area with a wood burner, a shower, and a toilet in addition to a double bed. It’s now simpler than ever to spend a staycation in your own garden.

Savills estate agent Jamie Macnab states, “This is without a doubt one of the very finest properties I have had the pleasure of marketing.”

“Myres Castle is first and foremost a wonderful family home with its impeccable historic pedigree, glorious gardens, and sensitive modernization, but there is also an attractive commercial aspect, if desired, with the cottage and gate lodge and exclusive use venue/events business all offering various income streams.” Myres Castle is a unique gem that will probably cause a sensation when we introduce it to the public.

Savills is presently accepting offers above £3.5 million for this property.
