Previously owned by Sir Nicholas Fairburn QC. MP. (died 1995), and later by a Mr. Bill Inglis (died 1999), does anyone know the names of the subsequent owner(s).

No sorry, but it does seem to be an unlucky place to stay!

No you won't. My site is dedicated to English and Welsh castles and Fife is not in either of these countries (Thank goodness )

Such a beautiful part of the country too, you really don't know what you're missing P.
Main problem is that it's full of RAF immigrants from some other part of the UK!!

Did anyone find out any information on the recent sale of Fordell Castle? I have been to Fordell Castle several times visiting with the Ingles, the castle had been going through much rennovation. I did not have chance to see the completed work since Mr. Ingles past away and then it was sold. Does anyone have recent pictures? I'm willing to share photo's. Also, is there any history, books, literature, old drawings, maps, etc. on the fordell castle estate and the Henderson that once lived there. I look forward to any helful information. Yours Aye!

I got my copy from Knight Frank International in Edinburgh, but this was back in August 1999. They may not have any copies left, unless of course the castle has been put up for sale again (and it may go through different agents).

Henderson Arms: I found this link ( http://www.geo.ed.ac.uk/scotgaz/features/featuredetails6532.html )giving some, but not of the information you were looking for. While somewhat vague, it is a start. I have must interest in Fordell Castle as (you probably noticed by now) you probably noticed by now, I am a decendent of the family of some of it's former owners. Let me know if there is anything I can do. I have yet to visit Scotland (as I am in the USA), but once I do, I hope to see Fordell Castle. I would love any pictures you have of your visit there; you can e-mail me them at JohnTHenderson@Gmail.com. Thanks,

The Knight Frank site lists it as sold.
Go to this URL: http://www.knightfrank.co.uk/webuk/flash/ViewSoldProperties.aspx

In the Residential Property Search, click the By map: UK button.

Then click on Scotland.

In the next map click Scotland again and click the Search button.

On the next page,under the search box, click the "SOLD - View recently sold properties in this area" link.

Click the link to the last page of properties.

You can see the castle listed as SOLD.

Fordell castle sold for 3,850,000 in November, this was the fifth highest sum ever payed for a home in Scotland. The highest being 5,000,000 for Seton Castle last February.

read Scotsman Report, where you'll find a few more castles in the top 50.
