Here is the list of the top 10 castles for sale in Britain currently:
Ten-bedroom castle in Fife, Scotland
This castle dates from the 16th century. It is surrounded by a vast walled garden with a topiary lawn. The living area has a carved stone fireplace, and apparently comes with a ghost that patrols the staircase.
Eight-bedroom castle in Perthshire

Seven-bedroom castle in Edinburgh
This castle is only six miles from Edinburgh and is right next to the airport. Some of the older rooms include a vaulted crypt in the reception hall and turnpike staircases and turrets. The kitchen, on the other hand, has new, modern utilities that still uses some of the older features of the castle.
Seventeen-bedroom mansion in Castle Douglas
This castle is complete with five acres of land. There are also sea views, a private driveway, and access to the nearby beach. The castle has 17 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, due to its having been a hotel before it was privately owned.

This castle sits right in the middle of the Scottish Borders and has plenty of open space for the next owners. There are four reception rooms that are linked to the open hallways. There is also a beautiful presentation room and library.
Thirteen-bedroom Victoria mansion
This mansion sits on 340 acres and has its own stables and a gatehouse. The living areas have polished timber floors as well as paneled walls and decorative fireplaces. The grand dining room has a stone fireplace and oak lined windows.
Ten-bedroom turreted mansion in Scotland’s Aberfeldy
This castle stands by the River Lyon among the rich forests and heather moors. It is actually near some famous tourist attractions. The only way to enter the home is through the large Gothic doors. Through the doorways, the person entering will be greeted by a hallway that is overlooking galleries. The dining room has a beautiful fireplace that stands 12 feet high.
Eleven-bedroom tower near Manchester
This castle is easily accessible; it is just northeast of Manchester with easy access to the M62. There are many period features like the grand fireplaces and paneled ceilings. The furniture pieces are also great features and go well with the name Wharmton Tower.
Four-bedroom house in Buckinghamshire
This castle was called Castle Keep and was originally built to be a folly in the 18th century. It was built into the hillside with the original castle porch accessible from the road, being at road level. There is a hidden spiral staircase that leads right into the newly remodeled kitchen.
Thankfully, only one of these castles is noticeably haunted. As long as you can handle that, you’ll be living royally. Again, who wouldn’t want to be their own king or queen of the castle?
