This summer on a canoe trip we came accross the White Otter Castle. It was built as a solo effort by the Hermit Jimmy McQuat on White Otter Lake. His body found in the lake in the spring of 1919 had spent the winter in the ice as he had allegedly drowned while net fishing the previous fall. The Picture below is the headstone that marks his grave. This is also the site of many ghost stories. I did not however come across Jimmy McQuat, despite all the wind that was howling through my tent.
