Teaninich Castle is a handsome Scottish property dating back to 1734 with a symmetrical three-storey frontage which has been modernised to a good standard, whilst retaining most of its period features. Currently run as a hotel, the castle could easily revert to use as a private house, subject to the appropriate consent.
The castle features open fireplaces and flagstone floors in some rooms, and ornate cornicing throughout. The small dining room and the larger dining room are perfect for family and more formal entertaining respectively. The property also comes with a gym and a wine store. There are two bedrooms on the ground floor and upstairs the first floor features four bedrooms with open fireplaces, and excellent views out over the Cromarty Firth. The second floor has a further five bedrooms and a manager’s flat is situated in the basement.

The castle sits in around 20 acres of gardens and grounds. There are gentle walks through the woods and the sunken lawns to the front are being further upgraded and landscaped by the current owners – helicopters can currently take off and land comfortably on the generous lawns. There is a heated Jacuzzi to the side of the main property and a shed and garden store to the rear.
Teaninich Castle is located in the Highlands on the fringes of Alness with views over farmland to the Cromarty Firth and the Black Isle. This is a popular sporting destination, with excellent fishing, shooting and stalking near Invergordon; Inverness is just half an hour by car.
The guide price is £950,000. For further information contact CKD Galbraith on 01463 224 343 or visit www.ckdgalbraith.co.uk.
