We drive for at least an hour, the radio buzzing with different rangers checking out different areas and we're almost at the point of giving up as the heat is making it more and more unlikely that she will be visible. Jo perseveres as we head up to an area called the Saddle, passing a memorial bench she has been known ...

      Kate met for coffee while they were studying at St. Andrews University. Next
      stop was Blair Castle. The current owner, The 11th Duke ...
