EPC RATING D.
You would be acquiring your own bit of Scottish history as the Pitreavie Estate was once owned by Robert The Bruce who gifted it to his sister Lady Christina Bruce in the 14th Century. The Castle sits close to the site of the Battle of Pitreavie fought on 20th July 1651 and much later in 1938 was sold to the Air Ministry and used to coordinate operations for the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force Coastal Command before becoming the headquarters of NATO North Atlantic Area after the Second World War. Winston Churchill visited Pitreavie Castle twice during the war. These are some useful links giving more detailed information
