What makes this castle unique

This is a totally unique property. It was built by a royal fan who loved the castle and, while they are both grey, that’s as far as it gets because the Queen’s estate has 40-odd bedrooms and our section of Yannon Towers has five!

Banker Robert Moir built the ‘mini replica’ in the 1850's at the same time as Queen Victoria was building her castle in Deeside, Aberdeenshire.

It is said Mr Moir loved Balmoral so much that he gave his folly similar windows and false wooden doors.

Cleaning Fee £50
Refundable Damage Deposit £250

Please respect the neighbours. The house is in a quiet residential area, so no loud music after 11pm.
Please park in allocated spaces.
No smoking in the house
No drugs or illegal activities-we're just over the road from the local police station!!
The kitchen is fully stocked with the all the basics including a huge array of herbs and spices. Feel free to use them. All I ask is that you replace anything you almost, or fully use.
If you break or damage anything, please let me know so I can replace it. Accidents happen, but it's nice to be told and given prior warning rather than coming home to a surprise (for example: a kitchen covered floor to ceiling in flour after a flour fight.. yes, it actually did happen)
