Sanjeev Kohli travels to Blairqhuan, a stunning castle set in the Scottish glens of Ayrshire, to find out what has happened since a Chinese company bought up the property in 2012.

Blairqhuan castle belonged to the same family for generations, and portraits of family members still hang on its grandiose walls. But today it is owned by a Chinese company whose managing director fell in love with the place on sight.

Sanjeev finds out what impact a change in ownership had on the local community, and how the Chinese are taking charge of a significant piece of Scottish heritage.

Producer Mark Rickards.
