Castle Grant is an historic ‘A’ listed 16th century castle set in mature garden grounds which enjoys stunning open views over to the hills of Cromdale and beyond. The castle was originally known as Freuchie Castle when it was occupied by the Comyn family but in 1694 the Grant family became the principle owners. The property was significantly extended in 1765 with the addition of the east and west wings by John Adam.
Accommodation is laid out over four main levels plus a large basement and two storey attic. On either side of the main castle are the west and east wings which form the U shape, and the raised inner courtyard.
The main entrance to the castle is on the north elevation leading to the hallway. The ground and upper floor have been upgraded, modernised and partially developed while the further upper floors have further potential for development, but currently require significant renovation.
Current accommodation includes the kitchen, utility room, billiard room, cinema room, ballroom, and several en suite bedrooms. There is also a self-contained two-bedroom guest wing with bathroom and open plan sitting/kitchen area.
The property is set in 35 acres of gardens and grounds which include mature parkland and surrounding woodlands. There are several paths carved through the garden grounds, one leading to a large pond and wooded area. Located withing the Cairngorm National Park, the castle has lovely open views over the Cromdale Hills and beyond. Grantown-on-Spey is a delightful Highland town which provides a wide range of shops, hotels, restaurants and other facilities. Inverness is around 20 miles.
