Let's all have fantasies of going to live  in beautiful Scotland and devoting our days to restoring an amazingly historic house. The one that needs rescuing today actually has its own Wikipedia entry – House of Memsie (also known as Memsie House) is a Category A listed house in Aberdeenshire. It dates to around 1760, and was the home of the Fraser family for 300 years.  All this could be a Persephone reader's for around £400,000. Details here, although happy to see that it's 'under offer' so let's hope it's a SPAB member who will restore it lovingly.
