The turrets were only added to the 1625 property in the 19th century and have never housed archers. Other more modern additions include a wet room and sauna, a handmade oak kitchen with a built-in American fridge freezer, and outbuildings housing a gym and games room. There are seven bedrooms, but you’ll have to climb all the way up to the third floor to rest your head in the master bedroom. Climb more stairs and you can survey your 3.65 acres from your very own battlements. The price is almost as lofty as the top floor tower room: £2.9m.In today’s market , only a rich Russian or American are likely to be interested. Although Britain is supposed to be coming out of recession , the property market remains flat , even at the top level.

The owners of Castle Gogar may be in for a long wait for a buyer . St Andrews castle is  a fascinating historic building in the university town in Fife .
