"A Scottish castle is, perhaps, the ultimate trophy property. They are rare;
according to the conservation organization Historic UK, there are just over 100
in Scotland. They are also very expensive.
Current castle owners include Ellis Short, a Missouri-born private equity
chief, who paid a reported $31.7 million/£23m for Skibo Castle in 2003. In
2018, John Paul DeJoria, co-founder of the haircare brand John Paul Mitchell
Systems, bought 469-year-old Taymouth Castle. Dutch fashion magnate Anders
Holch Povlsen, whose brands include Asos.com and Zalando, has extensive
holdings in Scotland including fairy-tale Aldourie Castle on the banks of Loch
Ness which he purchased in 2014 for $20.68 million."
