Want to live like a king or queen? Well, here’s one way to do it. A historic castle with ten bedrooms, walled gardens and its own eerie dungeon has just hit the market – and it could be yours for £3.5 million.

Myres Castle is located on the outskirts of the village of Auchtermuchty in north Fife, Scotland, and also has a huge library, three whole kitchens and a wine cellar. Outside, you’ll find 44 acres of private grounds, with a stunning walled garden, maze, woodland trails and even a lochan (that’s a small loch).

The castle was originally built by John Scrymgeour, the 1st Earl of Dundee, in 1530 and was later purchased by the King’s Printer in 1820. These days, it’s a wedding venue and private conference centre, but could now be turned back into a home, as it is up for sale through Savills. Worth noting that it’s also got a bespoke shepherd’s hut kitted out like a mini apartment, a tennis court and a helicopter pad.

So, if you’ve got a spare £3.5 million knocking around? You can find out more about the property and book in a viewing here.

ICYMI: the UK’s largest Christmas tree will light up this botanical garden this winter.
