With COVID-19 still at large and the thoughts that another virus could follow in the future, people are now looking for properties that offer more space both inside and out, making space the new currency in housing.
More opportunities for remote working allow people to have the freedom to work outside cities and in a relaxing environment.
Surrounded by stunning views, Orchardton Castle is a little gem in South-West Scotland with 25,000 sq feet, over 40 rooms, extensive lawns around, and an enclosed hedged garden to the south. It has facilities like the cinema with real cinema chairs, a fifteen feet screen and surround sound. There is also a table tennis room, library, art room and function room amongst others.
