14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
a bell at this castle brings the custodian out to get you by boat.

My husband and I were touring Scotland, visiting as many castles as we could. This one in the Galloways seemed abandon until we saw the bell. If rung, the custodian came from the castle on a little boat to pick up visitors. Sustainable because it was run by volunteers and was fun for visitors.
