      A grand Scottish castle with rumours of being haunted. Earlshall Castle was built in the mid’s by Sir William Bruce, a member of the historic Lowlands Scottish clan Bruce.. Sir Bruce was a survivor of the famous Battle of Flodden, the largest battle in the history of Britain between the kingdoms of England and Scotland, and where James IV King of Scots lost his life. Bodiam Castle is a 14th-century moated castle that will captivate you from the moment you lay eyes on it. The structure offers visitors a peep into the medieval splendour of its time. The site features a quaint bridge across the moat that leads to the entrance, which is marked by looming towers.

      Price: $ million While this is the least expensive castle on the list, at just over $1 million, there is a slight catch: The new owner of the bedroom Carbisdale Castle, in the Scottish. This Gothic Revival-style mansion in the center of Toronto was built in for a wealthy banker. Perched on Davenport Hill, feet above sea level, Casa Loma is Spanish for ‘hill house’.

    A whole spectrum existed between at one end a stout bolted door to at the other a moated castle. A common form of defence was a simple tower house - a stone house built high enough (and with a stout raised door and small, barred high windows) to make it difficult to attack without mounting a full siege.   Many moats, such as the one at the Tower of London, were drained long ago. Other moated houses and castles have been bequeathed to the National Trust (such as Oxburgh Hall and Ightham Mote). However there remains a handful of moated manor houses in private hands, usually belonging to the same family that built them centuries ago.
