Potential buyers will have a unique chance to live in one of Scotland’s most exclusive castles when show apartment viewings open on Saturday 8th June following £3.3 million of investment.

Located outside the village of Croftamie near Drymen, historic Dalnair Castle offers an exclusive range of ten luxury two- and three-bed apartments. This affords buyers the chance to live in a prestigious nineteenth century Scottish baronial mansion.

The castle forms the centrepiece of the prestigious Dalnair Estate and is set within acres of rural landscape just on the edge of world-renowned Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, with access to both Glasgow and Stirling within 25 minutes.

Since its purchase by FM Group in 2016, the castle is being extensively refurbished to the highest standard through a £3.3 million investment programme, with only the highest quality products and materials used throughout the development.

Built in 1884 by Glasgow merchant, Thomas Brown, on the site of the former much smaller ‘Endrickbank House’, the castle boasts a striking tower and Tudor-arched doorway. It sits in established woodland within an attractive parkland setting with views over surrounding countryside and the Endrick.

Prices for the apartments ranging from £310k to £575k for two and three-bed apartments, with entry late 2019.

Sales will also open for four large five-bedroom luxury family homes which will be located in the castle’s historic walled garden.

This will comprise two different styles – the Oak priced at £650k and the Beech style priced from £600k, with entry late 2019.

In addition to its unique setting and quality specification, residents can enjoy access to private grounds featuring a tennis court and extensive lawns and walks

The residential development of Dalnair Estate also comprises eight mews properties in the castle courtyard, now sold out, and a further ten plots for sale set within the existing landscape.

Croftamie has a local pre-school nursery and it is located near the villages of Drymen, Killearn and Balfron, which offer primary and secondary education facilities as well as GP and dental practices – guaranteeing village life is well catered for.

For those looking to take advantage of the outdoor life presented by the area, Croftamie is perfectly located for the keen cyclists and walkers with national cycle route 7 passing through the centre of the village and the West Highland Way just outside. Several popular countryside paths within neighbouring Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park are also on hand for those looking for something a little less challenging.

Robert Croll Sales Manager from FM Group said:

“We are very proud to be bringing apartments in this historic castle and luxury homes in the castle’s walled garden onto the market.

“Living in such a stunning location will clearly prove an incredible draw for people and there is undoubtedly going to be extremely high demand.

“Despite being within acres of rural landscape on the edge of world-renowned Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, the site is highly accessible, and both Glasgow and Stirling can be reached within 25 minutes.

“We look forward to welcoming people to Dalnair Estate and showing off these high-quality residential developments.”
