Today, we check out the Third Duke of Sutherland, a guy who built his own railway for £72,100 (back in 1871). In our first train vlog we uncover why the Third Duke of Sutherland paid for the Far North Line to be extended across the Highlands from Golspie to Helmsdale, via his estate at Dunrobin Castle.
I climb the 1,300-feet high Ben Bhraggie in Golspie, Sutherland, to meet the infamous monument of The First Duke of Sutherland, known locally as 'The Wee Mannie'. Why is he the most hated man in Scotland? He was responsible for the controversial Highland Clearances. Find out why so many people want to destroy the monument and see his 185-year old statue replaced.
