White otter castle
Imagine single-handedly felling trees, winching them from the woods and hemming them square!
The legend of Jimmy McOuat lives on in Sunset Country through the magnificent three-storey castle he built on the shores of White Otter Lake. At the turn of the century, he single-handedly constructed the log castle from red pine logs that he cut, hauled and interlocked. The castle has now been restored through the efforts of the Friends of White Otter Castle. The castle is 64 km north of Atikokan, and is accessible by snow machine, plane, boat and of course by canoe. White Otter Castle is an elaborate three-story log dwelling which was built on the shore of White Otter Lake, near Ignace, Ontario by eccentric hermit James Alexander “Jimmy” McOuat.
