Decisions, decisions...a smart city residence to buy or a charming country retreat to rent?

Baronial splendour

The magnificent Castle of Invercauld at Braemar, Aberdeenshire, seat of the Clan Farquharson since the 16th century, was partially rebuilt in the Scottish baronial style in 1874. It’s a superb location for a Highland wedding, business function or an unforgettable Scottish break.

The antique interior decoration is grand Victorian style, and the impressive panelled dining room seats 18. Four poster beds and large, deep baths add to the opulence.

Beyond the castle walls is plenty to entertain: the wooded parkland of the grounds for strolling, fishing in the River Dee, one of Scotland’s most famous salmon rivers, and informal rough shooting. In the area, highlights include Braemar Castle and village where a pipe band performs, golf at Ballater and Braemar, whisky distilleries and skiing at Glenshee. Aberdeen (and its airport) is 50 miles away.

The castle can accommodate 17 adults and six children, and costs £17,000 per week fully staffed and catered. Finlayson Hughes
