Rob Bell retraces the route, visiting a shooting estate, tossing a caber and finding an unmistakable Highland `brand” that all owe their existence to this royal railway age. He also explores a quiet valley of cattle farming and timber sawmills, and, in truth, a simple railway that struggled for decades to justify its own existence, despite its royal veneer.
