A historic castle for “significantly less than the average price of a UK apartment” is up for sale in Scotland. According to a BBC report, the 200-year-old castle is located on the island of Fetlar in Shetland Scotland. The sale price is £30,000 or Rs 30,71,872. But, there is a big catch to the offer. Spread over 40 acres of land, the dilapidated castle has warped towers, a courtyard and walled gardens. Prospective buyers, however, may have to spend £12 million or Rs 1,22,95,57,129 to repair the dilapidated building.

Need a potential buyer

The Brough Lodge Trust has commissioned a “philanthropic entrepreneur” to turn the site into a world-class retreat. The list of their proposal includes the maintenance of the existing building, the creation of 24 rooms and a restaurant. “The vision is simple but effective,” says the Trust, “Brough Lodge…will be transformed into a world-class retreat that will delight all who visit,” it was highlighted on the Trust’s website. Investors will need big money to cover the costs of renovating the building.

“We hope that a philanthropic entrepreneur will share our vision and take charge of the project. Proceeds from the sale of the property would be used for the work of the Trust to support hand knitting lessons for schoolchildren in Shetland,” said the trust which was set up in 1998 to preserve the building. In addition, trust officials said the proposed works would bring tourism to the island as well as economic benefits, creating 14 jobs.

Volunteers have spent over £5,000,000 since taking over the estate. They sealed the castle and added a new roof.

Castle in a prime location

Situated at the northwest end of Fetlar, Brough Lodge is a Grade A listed building of national significance. Arthur Nicholson, a dealer, built it based on his experiences touring France, Switzerland and Italy.

The building has not been occupied since Lady Nicholson left in the 1980s, making it a unique building on the island of just 61 people. The family’s last surviving heir, Olive Borland, transferred ownership of the building to the Brough Lodge Trust.
