Look at Scotland’s Dalmoak Castle if you like large, imposing, and attractive homes.

Situated in Dumbarton, West Dunbartonshire, this elegant mansion in the Tudor-style Gothic architecture is currently up for sale for less than £900,000.

Architect Alexander Watt (1827-1890) created the Scottish mansion with castellations for his client John Aiken (1801-1875). James Aiken, his son, inherited the house after that (1843-1928).

Gun loops, armorial plaques, and keystone monograms of the previous owner, James Aiken, are additional examples of period elements.

With a fascinating and lengthy past, Dalmoak Castle served as the Royal Air Force’s local headquarters during World War II before opening as a nursing home in 1989.

The 9,500 square foot interior of the property features two tower rooms, a wine cellar in the basement, offices, a grand foyer with an imperial staircase, and 14 bedrooms, several of which have ensuite bathrooms.
