As soon as you arrive, you'll be greeted by a unique portcullis-style front door (a heavy vertically-closing gate typically found in medieval fortifications). But don't let the 'bottle dungeon gate' intimidate you - inside, you'll find a host of equally imposing (yet not frightening) period features, including magnificent oak wood paneling and exposed stone walls.

The ground floor of the apartment boasts a characterful kitchen with custom cabinets, a sexy curved barrel ceiling, and terracotta tiled floor.

On this level, there's also the family bathroom with a spacious walk-in shower and separate freestanding bathtub.

But the real showstopper is on the second floor. The oak-paneled drawing room/dining room is a true masterpiece, with exceptionally fine carved detailing on the paneling and elaborate plasterwork gracing the ceiling. The herringbone parquet floor is the cherry on top.

There are two bedrooms on this floor as well, including a beautifully proportioned room lined with wood paneling and classic tartan plaid carpeting.

The second bedroom even has custom-built wooden bunk beds, perfect for any castle sleepovers.

Outside, the grounds of Craignish Castle offer breathtaking views of the Atlantic and the Paps of Jura. The shared garden grounds were designed in part by renowned garden designer Osgood Mackenzie.
