I heart botanical gardens too!

Ok, a little north-hemisphere coastal searching for a castle, er house, I mean hotel.

Hint: A modern castle, relative to the ancient history the larger place served to a seaward clan.

I was thinking Norway, but I Googled for 'castle hotel' and while I found lots of castles that are now hotels - nothing was a match...

I was thinking "modern castle" = Newcastle. Then "something rotten in the state of Denmark". But now I'm stuck.

By all means.

Guess that location should be more geo shape quiz then needle-in-haystack, so he is the geo-shape.

I think it's Balfour Castle on Shapinsay, in the Orkneys. The geoshape was a big help...

Mine? Seems big for that, but I'm not ruling it out. Volcano? That's a lot of perfectly concentric rings. Crater? again, those concentric rings don't look right.

Perhaps an "Er Richat" pastry snail, available only in Mauritania?

Okay, I'll stick with a circle theme. Hint: something in the image is a surprise.

Mount Aniakchak and Lake Surprise!
I wonder if the surveying party who discovered it got to call itself the Surprise Party... sorry.
