Buy if you dare.
The castle, which was said to have been chased by Sir Andrew, the Baron of Erlshall, who lived in a 17th-century house in Scotland, has been put up for sale at no cost.
For many years, visitors to the castle said they heard the footsteps of Sir Andrew, nicknamed “Bloody Bruce.” Sir Andrew lived in the house in the 17th century.
Homeowners and guests say they especially hear Bloody Bruce’s footsteps on the spiral staircase.
The Baron took his nickname in 1689 after a brutal victory at the Battle of Killiecrankie during the Scottish Jacobite Revolt. According to the Savills website, he broke his arms and head when he defeated Covenanter Richard Cameron in a fight.
After Bruce’s direct male line was completed in 1708, the castles were purchased and sold to various individuals over the years.
“I’ve sold Earlshall Castle twice in my 35-year career,” Jamie McNabb of Savills told The Post. “It’s a very special place,” he said. The current owner wants to return to the Netherlands to be closer to his grandchildren.
The images of the castle show its rural environment and rustic architecture.
The current owner bought the property in 2019.
The castle was built in 1546 by the then famous architect Sir William Bruce – who has nothing to do with Bloody Bruce. It was later restored and restored in the 1890s by the Scottish architect Sir Robert Lorimer.
“The magic is Sir Robert Lorimer, who rebuilt the castle and created the gardens,” McNabb said. “It’s a real castle with vaulted first-floor rooms, a Great Hall, hidden spiral staircases and muscle openings.”
The castle consists of 10 bedrooms, eight reception rooms, two dressing rooms, six bathrooms and three cottages across the square.
Located on an area of 34 hectares, the original granite fireplace in the Great Hall, the coats of arms of the European and Scottish aristocratic families, decorative ceilings and wooden panels and open stones.
Throughout the historic property, many windows have been installed for defensive purposes, with muscle rings and smaller windows located in strategic locations during an attack.
High-profile visitors include Queen Mary of Scotland and James I of England.
