Orchardton Castle is a unique Grade B listed Scottish Castle located on the Solway Coast. With over 40 rooms over 4 floors this exceptional property is currently as a stunning family home but offers exceptional business potential as a wedding venue or boutique hotel.

There are over 30 working fireplaces as well as Oil Central Heating throughout.
Orchardton Castle sits in grounds extending to approximately 5 acres with a mixture of lawns, mature shrubs and a pond. The gardens benefit from being in the gulf-stream which aids a number of unusual and interesting plants to grow including a palm tree.
This unique property was originally constructed in the late 18th Century for Robert Maxwell and subsequently largely rebuilt in 1881 into a large baronial mansion house. The property was extensively renovated in 2011 with new roof, electrics. Central heating and pipe work and the current owners continue to lovingly restore it with new windows and décor. Whilst some areas still require some TLC Orchardton offers outstanding potential as a wonderful family home or scope for business ventures such as a boutique hotel, wedding venue or conversion to apartments.
