Here in Scotland, we’re proud to be named the most beautiful nation in the world and we can see why. Across the country, the natural beauty on show is astonishing, so it’s no wonder that some of the properties are just as beautiful. Here we describe some of the most spectacular homes, estates and castles across Scotland.

Noss Head Lighthouse

Situated near Wick, not too far south of John o’ Groats, sits the Noss Head Lighthouse which was completed in 1849. As part of the lighthouse complex, the keeper’s home consists of three bedrooms which are all available for guests to stay in on their holidays. Most notably, the lighthouse was the first to use diagonal panes of glass which were considered stronger. Following the construction of the lighthouse, all future lighthouses built in the area utilised the same technology.

Glenborrodale Castle

Dating back to the early 1900s, Glenborrodale Castle is a gargantuan 16 bedroom home right in the centre of the Highlands. Set across a beautiful 133 acres, the home features stunning gardens, tons of marble and a turret to view the surrounding area. Even more impressively, the estate includes both the Isle of Risga and Eilean an Feidh so the owners can take a trip amongst uninhabited islands.

Dunrobin Castle

The tall spires, turrets and beautiful gardens of Dunrobin Castle make it seem like a castle taken straight from a Disney film. The castle has been inhabited since the 1300s, making it one of the oldest inhabited properties across the UK and it’s the family seat of the Earl of Sutherland. Astonishingly, the castle has 189 rooms!
