Craig castle dates back to the 16th century and sits in over 1000 acres of grounds, which include gardens and mature woodland in the glen of the Burn of Craig. Inside the castle is adorned with heraldry from across the ages and is described as being in a "mixed condition" with nine bedrooms and three reception rooms. The entire estate is for sale as a whole or in lots, which include land, cottages, a former mill and the castle, which is on the market for offers over £400,000 with Strutt and Parker. This budget is less than some central Edinburgh flats.

The castle is made up of four segments constructed across different periods of history.
The estate grounds include extensive woodland.
Dating back to 1510, and castle is grade A-listed by Historic Environment Scotland.
