Within this Scottish scene you'll see the ruin of Varrich Castle, near Tongue in Sutherland, North Scotland, with a snow-capped Ben Hope in the distance. The area saw a key battle between a Jacobite treasure ship and 2 Royal Navy ships in 1746, where the Jacobites tried to slip ashore with their gold, but were caught by the English with the help of some locals who were loyal to King George II. This cost Bonnie Prince Charlie valuable support in the run up to Culloden.
