Scottys Castle, Death Valley National Park: 45 reviews and 91 photos
The castle is a popular diversion in the northern portion of the park. Many make the trip to see the castle's Mediterrenean style architecture, striking anywhere but particularly so in this remote desert location. The castle's ingenuity extends beyond its construction and is evident in the implementation of the castle's solar water heating.
The castle derived its name from Walter Scott- a frequent guest of the wealthy Chicago millionaire Albert Johnson who once owned the castle. Tours of the castle are offered every hour. The tours fill up quickly as this is a popular attraction.
