A 15th century dilapidated castle in Fife, Scotland, has just come on the market for less than the price of a London flat – but it's a bit of a fixer-upper.

Piteadie Castle is believed to originate from the late 15th century and was partially rebuilt in the 17th century, notably with a traditional stair tower. It might be for sale for just £225,000, but it's in need of some serious TLC.

Perfect for anyone looking for a project, the castle has a wall with an arched gateway and a pediment carved with a coat of arms. As well as this, there is also a single-storey outbuilding, which also needs redoing, plus a disused tennis court with a stone-built pavilion.

Extending to around 3.8 acres, the outdoor space is particularly special, with a fruit orchard, fantastic countryside views across Fife and a practical potting shed, too. With a little imagination, it has the potential to be something quite wonderful. It's also worth knowing that there aren't any neighbours close by, so you really will have those great views all to yourself.

Jamie McNab from Savills told The Metro: "The castle ruins and adjacent land are also an interesting prospect, with the opportunity to develop the site for residential use being a distinct possibility, though naturally planning consent and the support of Historic Environment Scotland would be required."

This castle is currently on the market for £225,000 via Savills.
