After seeing the abstract painting of modern artist Angus McWhisker, Scrooge is reminded of Scottish tartan. He begins to wonder what the McDuck Tartan looked like and realizes that he actually does not know, having never seen a piece of McDuck plaid in his life. He reasons that there must be some left in Castle McDuck. But is it reasonable for a McDuck to go to the castle when the mysterious ghost hound that chased his ancestors away from it hundreds of years ago is still lurking about?
