I've never been to Urquhart Castle (though I hope to one day), so I used a photo by C├ędric Bonhomme, licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 4.0 International. This strip is therefore also licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 4.0 International.

The word "plumbing", by the way, derives from the Latin word plumbum, meaning lead, since the Ancient Romans used lead pipes for their plumbing. The Latin plumbum is also why the chemical symbol for lead is Pb. It's also the deviation of the name for plumb bobs, and via the fact that those are used to ensure things are vertical, the noun "aplomb", meaning "poise" or "composure" in English, but also having the related meanings of "vertical" and "stable" in French. It's so cool when you can make linguistic connections like this.
