The renowned Dornoch Castle Hotel, on the doorstep of the famous Dornoch links in northern Scotland, is now on the market.
For HK$30 million – about what you'd pay for a three-bedroom apartment in the Mid-Levels – you can own a Scottish castle.
Internationally famous Dornoch Castle Hotel, in the heart of the beautiful Sutherland town of Dornoch 40 minutes north of Inverness, has gone on the market for sale for precisely that sum.
Dornoch Castle Hotel occupies a stunning building dating from 1480 when the original building was built as a palace to the Bishop of Sutherland. The hotel sits directly opposite the inspiring 12th century Dornoch Cathedral.
The beauty of the place, from a golfing point of view at least, is that right on its doorstep lies Royal Dornoch Golf Club, one of the world's most loved links courses, one which attracts golfers from all four corners of the globe throughout the year. Access is good, too – Inverness airport is served by regular flights from London, Amsterdam, Bristol, Manchester and Glasgow.
An added incentive for potential buyers is the fact the region is witnessing unprecedented growth, with new businesses moving into the new energy park at nearby Nigg, thereby creating demand for more rooms and business trade for the foreseeable future.
Dornoch Castle itself has proven to be extremely popular with whisky aficionados using the Castle as a base to tour the northern Distilleries. Whisky tasting breaks now help fill the hotel during the quieter months.
