If you have $250K, you can buy a castle
(Yes, that's USD $250K....not Pounds)
Westhall Castle: For Sale (Scotland....Under Contract)
5 reception rooms
Walled garden and policies
Courtyard with 3 cottages
About 53 acres
Westhall Castle is near Aberdeen in Scotland. It was once a magnificent castle turned hotel that has fallen into a state of disrepair. The property was abandoned over fifteen years ago and has not been touched since. There is even a courtyard and a formal walled garden (in the same condition as the castle), several outbuildings including a stone barn, old piggery, old grain store, and more.
If you have the money to renovate it, then I think it's well worth it. After all, who wouldn't like to be a Laird with their own castle?
