One of Scotland's oldest remaining stone castles found in Renfrewshire is set to go under the hammer at auction for a staggeringly low price.

Ranfury Castle, also known as Runfurlie Castle, is located near Bridge of Weir on the Ranfurly Golf Course.

The 15th-century ruin is set to be put on auction for an opening price of just £6,000 with the event hosted by Future Property Auctions set to begin tomorrow (Thursday, April 18) at 10am.

The history behind reveals that the castle was built by the Knox family in about 1440, but passed to the Earl of Dundonald, a Cochrane in 1665, and subsequently to the Aitkenheads.

Now, two storeys of the keep remain, although there were previously at least three storeys and three cellars of the buildings once in the courtyard.

It was originally a small property with a courtyard when fully intact.

The walls of the ground floor had arrowslits. The main entrance was at the first-floor level.

The east wing, which was added about 200 years after initial construction, is the most modern part of the building.

A south wing providing three vaults for cattle and stores on the ground floor and probably three rooms for the family above were also added, although the date is unknown.

It has been branded as a "superb" development opportunity with all buyers warned that all investigations must be made by the owners to satisfy themselves.

Located just under 20 miles from Glasgow city centre, and near Glasgow Airport, the ruin offers access to major routes to popular destinations.
