If I buy it and then begin making pronouncements at the extreme end of the political spectrum that embarrass my party of choice, would that make me a True Scotsman?

When I first came here, this was all swamp. Everyone said I was daft to build a castle on a swamp, but I built in all the same, just to show them. It sank into the swamp. So I built a second one. That sank into the swamp. So I built a third. That burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp. But the fourth one stayed up. And that's what you're going to get, Lad, the strongest castle in all of England.

dervish16108: AverageAmericanGuy: Does it come with tapestries?

I don't want a castle that doesn't have any authentic tapestries.

Tapestries make the castle.

I want a castle with tapestries that were personally authenticated by Lord Clarence McDonald and his lovely assistant.


This is a castle. And they have many tapestries. But if you're a Scottish lord, then I am Mickey Mouse.

Andromeda: Whenever I see the castles from this era in Ireland/Scotland, basically a giant box with some great halls in them (the Blarney Castle of the stone fame is one), I always say a quiet thanks for the place and era I was born into. I mean geez, the richest guy in the area had to live there in the dark and cold with dozens of others, no electricity or plumbing, in conditions that these days are unheard of even for the poor.

Nothing like a piece of history to remind you you're better off than many lords and kings ever were...


On the plus side that was before rape and plunder gained a bad reputation and kings got to say thing like "bring her to my chamber" when seeing a comely wench in the village. "In those days spirits were brave, the stakes were high, men were real men, women were real women and small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri were real small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri." as I once read in a popular travel guide.

This is actually a higher quality building with better finish and amenity than you will get here in Cambridge, UK, for 5 times the price.

Only if it has a dungeon. I have...enemies...that I don't want to see the light of day. Most importantly, does it have the original torture equipment? They just don't make torture devices like they did during the 15th and 16th century.

I think they are using the term "castle" very loosely.

"Pile of shaped rocks" seems more appropriate.

Slaxl: Yeah, to stop people tearing it down and using the stone to build a real house. Thank fark for that!


To continue to support an economic model that caused it to fall into ruins in the first place. Thank fark for that!

Restore it to its original condition, arms, artillery, cavalry and all and take over the local lands.

That reminds me of a poem:

"Can I have fifty pounds to mend the shed? I'm right on my uppers. I can pay you back when this postal order comes from Australia. Honestly. Hope the bladder trouble's getting better. Love, Ewan. "
