There are seven castles (shown to the left.) You automatically have access to the first two castles, you gain access to the other 5 castles by beating the castles (i.e knocking off the treasure).
This is to hopefully knock the crown and wall AWAY from the inside of the castle in case the treasure is inside the castle.
If your castle has been turned to rubble and you have some wall pieces lying flat with a little space between them, it is almost impossible for Skarl to hit your treasure or even bump it if you put it there between the flat wall pieces.
