In New York, $2 million can get you a two-bedroom condo on the Upper West Side (maybe). In Scotland, it can get you a 16th Century castle.

Cleish Castle, located 25 miles outside Edinburgh’s City Center, hit the market for the first time in 20 years at $1.85 million, according to Mansion Global. The building has eight bedrooms and five bathrooms, and offers expansive views of Kinross-shire, an historic county in eastern Scotland. The current owners have renovated the 500-year-old castle and attached a Victorian one-story “south wing” to the building.

The property, which spans 26 acres, is home to Scotland’s oldest “yew walk,” a 150-yard path lined on both sides with coniferous trees. The castle is believed to have other historical significance. Mary Queen of Scots briefly stayed at the property after escaping imprisonment at another nearby castle — Lochleven Castle — in 1568.
