Call us inquisitive, curious or just plain old nosy, but there’s nothing more thrilling than uncovering a detail that’s often overlooked. And it’s this spirit of discovery that’s the driving force behind today’s special bonus episode, where we’re placing the spotlight on our favourite Hidden Secrets from Love Scotland so far.

From a ticket to Lord Lovat’s grisly execution on display at Culloden Visitor Centre and signs of beaver activity along the banks of the River Tay, to Brodie Castle’s two ancient Egyptian mummies, which pre-date Christ by 300 years, each fascinating secret is safeguarded by National Trust for Scotland staff and volunteers.

Ready to unearth our most-loved hidden secrets? Let’s dive in!
