Stately living in a 13th-century Scottish castle – in pictures

London is still seen as a relatively safe bet by many investors, but with UBS reporting in its ‘Bubble Index’ earlier this week that the city is the second-most overvalued in the world in terms of prices-to-average income, looking further afield can often uncover better bargains.

Body: Take The Craig, for instance. This is a 13th Century Scottish castellated house or castle that is steeped in history and set in more than eight hectares of grounds, which is currently on the market for the same price as a five-bedroom villa in Arabian Ranches £1.57m, or Dh7.5m.
