johncb76006: Buy it. Tear it down. Use the stone to build a real house.
gingerjet: natas6.0: The problem with some of these is that you are now responsible for upkeep and returning them to something less unsightly.The real problem is that you are now responsible for a thousand regulations and laws passed down over hundreds of years that you have no hope of ever repealing without over throwing the government.
CruJones: FTA: Lordscairnie Castle comes with around 30 acres of land and has a pool which has its own eco-system and attracts a variety of wildlife, including fifty different species of birds.Pretty sure that's not a pool, it's a pond.
Joce678: johncb76006: Buy it. Tear it down. Use the stone to build a real house."Listed building" means there's a massive list of regulations about what you're allowed to do with it (and the surrounding land).IANAL but most likely you can't do anything unless it goes in the direction of making it more like the original castle. Even internal decoration will be restricted so you can't turn it into a high-tech mancave or anything like that.
