Castle Grant sold after 2 weeks on market

Castle Grant on the outskirts of Grantown-on-Spey has been sold for over £1.1million after just 2 weeks on the market .
Music industry PR man Jordan Harkins, from Aberdeen, tweeted: “Just found out my auntie bought the castle Craig Whyte was evicted from … might tell her to rent him back a room seeing as he is a legend.”

Kevin Maley, of selling agents Strutt & Parker, said: “This has been a very quick sale for a property of this size.

“But it is a fantastic place in a great setting at a very good price indeed.”

Whyte bought the castle for £720,000 in 2006 with a 110 per cent mortgage but he fell into arrears with the £7000-a-month mortgage payments.

His lender took him to court in Inverness but the day before he was forced to give up the keys, the Record caught Whyte’s dad Tom siphoning oil from the heating system and removing fittings.
