A pheasant shooting estate in Aberdeenshire has gone on the market with Scotland's most expensive price tag at £10.5m.

The 12,000-acre Tillypronie Estate is owned by the Astor family, a dynasty with ties to the wife of former Prime Minister David Cameron.

Tillypronie is the most expensive estate on the Scottish market, with a price tag which beats the Kinnaird Estate in Perthshire, bought for nearly £10m in June.

It includes the 11-bedroom Tillypronie House, which has undergone a restoration since it was inherited by owner Philip Astor in the 1980s.

Mr Astor said: "Tillypronie is a truly magical place, which has given huge pleasure to family and friends of all ages since I inherited it over 30 years ago.

"The house is one of those places that immediately conveys a sense of happiness; and I don't think the garden has ever looked so beautiful.

"I have worked hard over the past few years to restore the grouse moors to something approaching their former glory but I feel it is now time for someone else to continue that exercise.

"Meanwhile I am immensely proud to have developed a spectacular pheasant shoot, where discerning teams of guns have been eager to return year after year."
