Ardverikie House, built in the Scottish baronial style in 1870, is one of the finest private houses in the Scottish highlands. Sitting on a promontory overlooking King Fergus's Island with its ancient ruins, a three mile private drive winds past the largest inland beach in the country and round the loch. The house played host to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert for a whole month before she bought Balmoral.

Shark Bay, on the western tip of Australia, showcases natural beauty, diverse sea life and wide-ranging geography. It has the largest seagrass bed in the world, dozens of endemic animal species, five endangered mammal species and more than a third of Australia’s bird species. A distinguishing Shark Bay feature: the stromatolites, rock-like structures formed by blue-green algae colonies. Stromatolites are among the Earth’s oldest life forms, originating on the planet 3.5 billion years ago. Shark Bay’s stromatolites are similar to their ancient ancestors, serving as a window into life early in the Earth’s history.
