Forgive me this further little piece of trivia which I discovered;

Captain Nemo's domestic arrangements in the heart of the raging depths are drawn from Verne's visit to the rain-swept but luxurious ‘château’ of ‘Ockley’ in Fife. While this building has remained mysterious to date, it can be identified here for the first time as Inzievar House in Oakley.
A reading of chapters 27-29 of Verne's Backwards to Britain (written in about 1859, but published only in 1989) clearly demonstrates his visit to Inzievar House as the source of Nemo's plumbing, furnishings, artistic preferences, and general lifestyle. Verne indeed acknowledges the debt when he presents Nemo ‘us[ing] only the black keys, giving his melodies an essentially Scottish tonality’
