 Regal home with a colourful history off Scotland's west coast can be yours for $1.2 million

The castle in Scotland that gave Calgary its name is up for sale — and for a castle, it's a bloody steal.

 

Calgary Castle is an "exceptional" castle "overlooking the white sands of Mull's Calgary Bay," according to the listing provided by Edinburgh realtors Strutt and Parker.

 It's on the market with a floor price of around $1.2 million, or 695,000 pounds.

The castle, originally built in the 1700s and renovated in the 19th century by merchant navy captain Alan MacAskill, features a crenellated parapet, angled turrets, gothic-style windows and plenty of period details.
