From Wikipedia:

"The Old Castle's Secret" is a 32-page comic book adventure/mystery/horror story written, drawn, and lettered by Carl Barks. It was first published in 1948. The story is about a treasure hunt led by Uncle Scrooge through an old castle in Scotland. The story has been reprinted many times... Scrooge McDuck recruits his nephews to search for a family treasure back in Dismal Downs, the old castle of The Clan McDuck, built in the middle of a swamp in Scotland. The treasure once belonged to Sir Quackly McDuck, but both the treasure and its owner disappeared in 1057. The Clan has been searching for the treasure for centuries but Scrooge, the last McDuck, thinks that he can locate it thanks to an X-Ray machine that can look behind/through the castle's walls... The story is one of Barks' most memorable for several reasons. The plot borrows elements of horror and mystery stories, favourites of Barks; the old and mostly abandoned castle with its dark halls, hidden dungeons and crypts; ancestors' skeletons buried within the castle; the ancient McDuck cemetery with the graves of generations of the main characters' ancestors; the misty swamp, the threatening "ghost", and the imminent danger the characters sense. "The Old Castle's Secret" is considered to be among Barks' best drawing efforts..."
