Every day seems to be the day for Game of Thrones news.
It was just last week, in fact, that Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie were announced to be engaged! The off-screen couple created a tidal wave of excitement and stirred the fandom up yet again. But even away from the GoT setting, it seems that actress Rose Leslie has had some actual encounters with ancient castles, but they don’t involve dragons or a Night King.

Leslie’s childhood home is not just some flat in a quiet neighborhood. It’s a stately stone castle nestled among the rolling country hills of Aberdeenshire, Scotland. The majestic architecture allows it to stand out amongst the plush green surroundings and we can’t help but gape at it like a bunch of peasants.
Who knew that Leslie has ties to an aristocratic clan with a lineage that dates back centuries? But what we do know, according to Digital Spy, is that you can actually stay there through Airbnb for a mere 600 pounds a night! Totally a steal to be royal for a hot second.
The Lickleyhead Castle has rooms that will either make you feel like a duke, duchess, or complete plebeian.
