'We hadn't always dreamed of living in a castle'

A couple from Dumfries and Galloway say they hadn't planned to buy a run-down castle and restore it.

But John and Janet Brennan have spent the last seven years and hundreds of thousands of pounds rebuilding Barholm Castle, near Gatehouse on Fleet.

They have now put the property on sale for ££695,000.

Barholm Castle

A couple from Dumfries and Galloway, who spent years restoring one of the region's historic buildings, are now selling it.

Barholm Castle has an asking price of £695,000.

John and Janet Brennan bought it for just £65,000 in 1999, but say they've spent hundreds of thousands of pounds on the restoration, and stand to lose money.

They're selling the property because they want to be closer to Dumfries.
