When driving the first or the last day (depending on clockwise or anti clockwise driving) of the North Coast 500, don’t forget to get in touch with Marjory Gunn at the Dunbeath Castle Office. Dunbeath Castle is the castle with the best driveway possible – without a doubt. The castle is not open for public (unless you make it a special occasion) but the gardens are.
With our group of 8 Lotus cars Tertius M. Threipland, owner of the castle which is also his house, honoured us by welcoming us in person. The tour on the premises and in the gardens, the lunch, this visit was a fantastic experience. This short movie of our first day shows it all. Thank you again, mr. Threipland and Marjory!
