Teaninich Castle is a most impressive B listed property set in Easter Ross in the Highlands of Scotland. Dating from 1734, the castle was formerly the seat of the Munros of Teaninich, while in more recent times owners have included the American Charles Harrison on whom the book Little Lord Fauntleroy was based. Latterly run as a hotel and wedding venue, the castle lies on the fringes of Alness with views over farmland to the Cromarty Firth and the Black Isle and easy access to routes north and south. Easter Ross benefits from the success of the oil and renewables industries, while tourism continues to thrive with a growth in visitors attracted by the excellent rural sports available locally and the North Coast 500, an iconic route through the Highlands most beautiful scenery.

The castle is now in need of renovation, however, it has tremendous potential to once again become a sought-after hotel and wedding venue or, subject to the necessary consents, to be converted to luxury apartments or exclusive country club. As the pressure of modern life increases in the more densely populated areas of the UK, so demand increases for an accessible retreat which brings with it a sense of community, open spaces and peace and quiet. With its easy access to Inverness airport, improved sleeper train services from Inverness and the dualling of the A9, Teaninich Castle is a unique development opportunity.

Teaninich Castle is a handsome and impressive property retaining most of its original features. The accommodation, which is laid out over 3 floors, comprises public rooms on the ground floor and a residents' lounge and a further reception room on the first floor previously used for hosting receptions for up to 40 people or for conferences of up to 20 people. The bedroom accommodation is on the first and second floors, while there is a bedroom suitable for disabled access on the ground floor. There is also a self-contained manager's flat within the castle.

Teaninich Castle is set in established gardens extending to some 8 acres. The approach to the castle is via a tarmacadam drive through sweeping lawns, fringed and interspersed with mature specimen trees adding to the majesty of the setting. There are walks through the wooded grounds leading to shady corners with framed views to the Cromarty Firth and sunken lawns to the front of the castle
