No internet meant no GPS and despite advice that “you can’t go wrong – just follow the A90” we did actually go wrong and got completely lost. Shieldaig lodge in Gaerloch was gorgeous – set in a 26000 acre estate tucked away down a meandering road adjoining the bay it had a tranquility that comes from having been there since the early 19th century.

His most important offspring was the brilliant 2-year-old Proctor Knott, winner of the first Futurity Stakes; also American Derby winner Uncle Bob (named for Belle Meade's well-known stud groom), and the mare Heartburn (dam of Salvolatile). From Invermoriston we route along the banks of Loch Ness, so keep your camera to hand, just in case "Nessie" pops up to say hello!This is the ancestral home of the Earl and Countess of Mansfield who welcomes us with coffee and freshly baked shortbread. Then after all the planning and driving, the NC500 was done and dusted and we were back to the big cities with a night in Glasgow and two in Edinburgh to finish off our trip to Scotland.

Many Commandos still see Achnacarry as a spiritual home; just as it always is for those, from any corner of the earth, who proudly bear the name Cameron. Through his grandson Ben Brush, Bonnie Scotland's sire line produced multiple American Classic winners in the early 20th century. Supposedly, the reason for the name was that in the Eighteenth and Nineteenth centuries the people of Edinburgh thought of themselves as the new Athenians of the world, and viewed the rural Aberdonians as the equivalent of the reputedly uncivilised and brutal Spartans.On the recommendation of a fellow guest in Corpach we drove about 10kms out of town to the Glenfinnan Viaduct to witness the passing of the steam train more famously known as The Hogwarts Express.
