YOU can now stay in a pink castle that looks like something from a fairytale.

It won't break the bank either, costing less than £30 each a night.

Fairburn Tower, half an hour from Inverness, dates back to 1545.

The tower was built for Murdo Mackenzie who was favoured by King James V's court.

Over the years, the Scottish Renaissance tower has been updated, with the larger towers and turrets being added in the 17th century.

It has since been renovated over the years, with the Landmark Trust taking it over in 2020.

The final restoration finished last year.

You can now stay in the tower, which sleeps up to four people so it is perfect for families and kids wanting to play princess and princes.

The property has five floors, with a kitchen, living area and even a fully stocked library.

The interior has been decorated in the Scottish Renaissance style with tapestries, artwork and paintings.

A former guest has already given it rave reviews, saying: "Wonderful restoration of an iconic property.

"Very comfortable accommodation in a lovely location."
