[Yes, this place does exist - although the sign has a tendency to go missing]

There's a unique secret hiding away in Glen Nochty, reached by minor roads and tracks from deepest Strathdon. The seriously remote, tiny Lost Gallery couldn't be more aptly named - it's difficult enough to find even if over-enthusiastic tourists haven't recently stolen the Lost road sign pointing the way from Bellabeg. By the turnoff, there's a parking area for the prominent mound known as the Doune of Invernochty. A 12th century castle once stood on top of the motte: although almost nothing remains today, the earthworks are still impressive and easily climbed (steeply).
