The castle is located deep in the heart of the Kingdom of DunBroch in the Scottish Highlands. Access to the castle is through the gates by the coast, surrounded by forest and mountain terrain.
Much like the rest of the Kingdom, the Castle's architecture is made of late-medival architecture, the foundation made entirely out of stone supported by lumber.
The clans DunBroch, Macintosh, MacGuffin and Dingwall were at war for countless generations. When Vikings, Northerners and Roman invaders came to Scotland (also known as Caledonia) in hopes of conquest. Fergus, lord of DunBroch, rallied the three other clans together and fought off the invaders, instilling a treaty between the clans and crowning Fergus and Elinor king and queen. Because of this, matters of politcal importance (like the betrothal of their daughter Merida) take place in the castle as their capital.

Role in the Crossover Edit
Because the castle is home to Merida and her family, stories that involve Merida would most definitely involve the Castle. Because the castle is a fortress, the Castle is the perfect location for times of war and it's experience in magic would allow people like Jack and the Guardians as a form of sanctuary.
