A picture-perfect, nine-bedroom fairy tale castle in Aberdeenshire could be yours for just £400,000.

Dating back to 1510, this castle is made up of four segments constructed across different periods of history. Packed with charm, it's a property like nowhere else.

Known formally as Craig Castle, the property has been home to several generations of the Barlas family over the years. Inside, you'll find plenty of historical features including a small Guards Room, turrets, spiral staircases, a cell, roaring fireplaces and even a dungeon.

On the ground floor, the extension incorporated a grand hallway with a curved cantilevered staircase and two main rooms. The original layout of the first floor included a large drawing room, but a new extension in 1832 added a stunning bedroom with a dressing room and an en-suite. It's the perfect place for guests staying for a visit.

The interiors inside are typical of a traditional castle: think stone walls, heavy wooden doors, decadent wallpaper and large fireplaces. It's not the most modern of properties, but it gives you the opportunity to renovate it as you wish.

And if that wasn't enough, there is also 63-acres of sprawling land for new homeowners to enjoy. Expect beautiful flower beds, vast fields of verdant green and uninterrupted countryside views.

The walled garden includes walls dating back to the 16th century. It is situated to the east of the 18th century wing and is mainly laid to lawn with borders along the walls, and features impressive mature specimen trees and a summer house.

An agent at Strutt & Parker explains: 'The oldest part of the castle was constructed in 1510 and is set out across an L-shaped plan, typical of its era. Built of stone, the exterior features gun ports, crow-stepped gabling, a turret to the south east.'
