Nestled in the foothills of Scotland’s Highlands stands one of the Europe’s most ancient castles, once a ruin and now comfortably appointed.
Surrounded with the privacy of grazing farmlands and hillocks of heath, Garth Castle rises as a singular monument to its intriguing and sometimes forbidding past. Its natural environs of towering trees, bogs and fields of heather are clearly an inviting reminder to step into the life of centuries past.
Rarely does an historic structure of this age come onto the private market. Secluded but not isolated, Garth Castle offers privacy in a centrally-located landscape. Its ancient walls are witness to hundreds of lives and some of the most impressionable events of Scotland’s centuries past.

Naturally Green Features of the Ancient Castle
Garth Castle was built facing south so that the massive stone walls (over 14' deep) would absorb the warmth of the sun and insulate the structure for temperature control.
An 8'-wide stone fireplace with a 4' insert, readily heats the castle in Scotland's moderate winter climate.
Maintenance is fairly minimal today due to numerous upgrades by the current owner, including floor heating in the Great Hall & sleeping area. If changes are desired stone masons are readily available throughout Scotland for adaptations or repairs.
