A stunning castle with its own wine cellar and private golf course is on sale for £2.3 million.
Kelly Castle, situated between the towns Arbroath and Carnoustie in Scotland, is a four storey fortified castle which dates back to the 16th century.
The eight bedroom B-listed home can be viewed on Zoopla and sits in 33 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens.
Whoever buys the castle could also take the title, Baron of Kelly in Angus, if they are willing to negotiate with the current owners.
A number of tasteful renovations and upgrades have been carried out by the current owners. This includes a nine-hole golf course and a modern bedroom with an ensuite and a walk-in-wardrobe.
Despite the modern touches, much of the character of the historic building remains firmly intact including an ornate wooden-decked living room and perfectly preserved staircases.

Some of the furniture inside Kelly Castle is available by negotiation.
The castle is on the market with Strutt Parker and was bought by the current owners in 2001. But, the history of Kelly Castle is much older.
The land on which the castle now sits was originally owned by Philip de Moubray, a Norman settler, and his descendants.
They forfeited the property in the reign of Robert the Bruce and it was given to the Stewart family.
In 1641, Kelly Castle went to the Irvine family who extended it, adding two wings and a courtyard.
Towards the end of the 17th Century the castle passed to the Earls of Panmure and then to the Ramsay Earls of Dalhousie following the Jacobite Rebellion of 1715.
The castle was abandoned for around a century before being restored by John Shiell in the 1860s.
Today, Kelly Castle has five beautiful bedrooms and five bathrooms, along with a two-bedroom self contained estate manager’s flat and a one-bedroom staff flat, both with their own entrances.
The ground floor contains the en-suite principal bedroom, a second bedroom, sitting room, kitchen, snooker room, bar, wine cellar and cinema room.
On the first floor is a magnificent library, sitting room, dining room, two ensuite bedrooms, a kitchen and a family room.
The second floor has a drawing room and a home office, while the third floor has an en-suite bedroom.
Two more bedrooms occupy the fourth floor, and there is a tiny turret room on the fifth floor. Many of the top floor rooms enjoy views over the spectacular North Sea.
Kelly Castle has a formal walled garden which boasts not only a golf course but also a croquet lawn. The garden is also surrounded by mature woodlands and the Elliot Water flows through the grounds.
As well as a snooker room, the property also has a basement bar and a cinema room
The £2.3million castle also has its own wine cellar in addition to the private nine hole golf course
The agents say: ‘Kelly Castle is a hugely impressive Scottish Fortified Tower House. Grade B listed by Historic Environment Scotland. Major renovations and modifications by the current owners were completed in 2009.
‘As you would expect, the rooms are resplendent and retain many original features such as decorative plasterwork, with some of the rooms enjoying views over the walled gardens and out to the North Sea in the distance.
‘There are numerous public rooms, which include a basement bar, snooker room and cinema room. Its position and layout will suit a variety of buyers, particularly as a large family home and those with an interest in golf.
‘The owners constructed a private nine hole golf course, and the castle is within close proximity of both Carnoustie golf course which has hosted The Open, and the home of golf at St Andrews.
‘The current owners purchased the castle in 2001 and have been magnificent custodians of it, undertaking a sympathetic renovation and making significant improvements and modifications, with no expense spared.’
