Re: Selling castle for taxes

The only story I know of concerns George Sinclair, the 6th Earl of Caithness, 
who mortgaged his estates to John Campbell of Glenorchy. George Sinclair of 
Keiss eventually got them back through royal decree. Not being an expert like 
the other marvelous people on this list, I hope I have provided what you may 
be looking for. By the way the mortaging of the estates took place in the 
late 1600s.
