New Zealand woman aims to sell historic family castle in Melrose
A NEW ZEALAND woman is hoping to sell a Scottish castle which has been in her family since the 1400s.
Scots-born Fionna Heiton, who now lives in New Zealand, is keen to off-load the historic Darnick Tower in Melrose so that she can concentrate on running a charity organisation in Nepal.
The Category A listed Darnick Tower dates from 1425 and has been in the hands of the Heiton family since it was constructed.
Ms Heiton expects that Darnick Tower will be especially popular among those with a keen and passionate interest in Scottish history.
