The five-storey baronial mansion, built in 1902, is situated on the southern shore of the picturesque Ardnamurchan Peninsula.

According to the brochure from estate agents Bell Ingram, the area offers some of the "most outstanding coastal line scenery" with an abundance of wildlife including otters, seals and golden and white tailed eagles.

Inside the building, which is built from Dumfriesshire sandstone, there is a curved staircase with marble steps leading to further garden terraces.

The Bell Ingram brochure states the castle "dominates the steep south-facing hillside which overlooks Loch Sunart."

Arguably the most impressive feature of the Disney-like castle is its two islands - f Risga and Eilean an Feidh.

Included in the price, the islands are uninhabited and can only be reached by boat.

The castle's new owner will also be able admire them any time from the comfort of their new surroundings.
