There’s No Other House In The World Like This One In South Carolina
Mugdock Castle on Sullivan’s Island is a unique, one-of-a-kind house plunked down in the middle of a residential neighborhood adjacent to Fort Moultrie near the south end of the island. The dwelling has evolved over the years from its divine beginning – to the royal present.

According to the Mugdock Castle website, the new name came from a “family stronghold built in the 14th century north of Glasgow, Scotland.” According to the site, the castle is a “testament to perseverance and a bastion of peace and hospitality.”
The new tower on the castle’s winter hall replaced the church’s bell tower – you can see in the photo where the top has been replaced. But in its former life, the home’s private residents were also bastions of hospitality. Each Christmas they would put a life-size Santa in the bell tower, his arm high in the air, waving to everyone who passed by.
