Spend Future Halloweens in Count Dracula’s Timeshare?
Monday, November 3, 2008
Plans are underway to transform Slains Castle – the castle that inspired Bram Stoker to write the horror classic, Dracula – into timeshare condos.
The cliff top ruins of Slains Castle are near Cruden Bay in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. It was originally built in 1597, which leads one to assume that calling the renovations extensive is an understatement, yet plans continue to move forward on this £6 million timeshare project.
Understandably, some people have raised objections to the idea of turning a structure of such historic significance into a timeshare, but supporters point out that if Slains Castle is not renovated in this way, it will continue to deteriorate, crumbling down the cliffs and into the sea.
According to Timesharing Today, the architect behind the development, Douglas Forrest said, “Work has already started on the new plans and it’s going well.” He also explained that the intention was to restore the castle to the way it was during its prime.
…Sounds like it may be a while before you can start scheduling weeks at this timeshare condo resort. Until then, you may want to vacation in Scotland timeshare resales and Wales timeshare resales. Both countries offer beautiful timeshare resales and timeshare rentals, amazing castles and ruins to explore, and who knows, perhaps even a vampire or two.
