Frankenstein castle looks for new guard


Something for the weekend…

The setting for the new Frankenstein film, ‘Victor Frankenstein’, which will be released in November, is looking for a new deputy custodian guard.

The well-known castle just outside of Stonehaven, Scotland, will also offer its new recruit the opportunity to enhance their health and wellbeing; the guard will have to climb 272 steps several times a day.

The castle is located on a clifftop 160 feet above the North Sea and dates back to the early Middle Ages.

Jim Wands, custodian at Dunnottar Castle, said: “To say it’s the best job I’ve ever had is an understatement. There’s something new to do every day. I love it.

“It ranges from property maintenance to health and safety, opening the castle to shutting the castle. It’s so varied and like no other job.”
