A stunning 15th-century castle has gone on the market for $3 million – and comes with a world-famous whisky bar and distillery.
Dornoch Castle, in Sutherland, UK, was last used as a main residence in 1947 before being turned into a hotel.
But sellers said the 22-bedroom "cozy castle" would make an "incredible family home" for people looking to escape to the Highlands of Scotland.
The current owners, who have had the property since 2000, have painstakingly restored the castle to its former glory.
Its original features have been retained over the centuries – including a five-story turreted tower, exposed stone walls, wooden beams, and impressive fireplaces.
The ‘one of a kind’ castle comes with its own restaurant and whisky bar, with a range of rare and premium Malts from all over the world.
A vaulted cellar is currently used as a private dining room - seating just 12 people - and a distillery on the grounds produces ‘old style’ whiskey and hand-crafted gin.
There is also potential to add another 10 bedrooms to the grade B-listed castle.
Selling agent David Britton said: “It’s one of a kind.
"It’s stunning and a real privilege to get the opportunity to sell such a historic building.
“It’s an outstanding property that the owners class as a cozy castle and after a short stay, I then understood exactly what they meant.
“I am very confident that we can find a buyer that will love this piece of history in the same way that the current owners have for the last 22 years.
“However, we would like to add that the current use as a hotel is wonderful and with consent for a further 10 bedrooms could expand an already very healthy turnover.
“But as the castle was a private residence until 1947 it should also be considered as having residential potential in a stunning highlands location.”
The castle sits opposite a 13th-century cathedral, is next to the Royal Dornoch golf course, and has also been used as a wedding venue in the past.
