The ancient and noble Thyme Clan
have lived on the banks of Loch Ness
since 1508 Their ancestral home,
Thyme Castle, is on the north side of
the loch, roughly half way between Fort
Augustus and Inverness. It stands on
the southernmost tip of a promontory
overlooking Thyme Bay, just a few
miles beyond Drumnadrochit.

“ Justin readily promised to remain
within the boundaries of the Thyme
estate, and fervently hoped that time
travelling wouldn’t break that promise.
The castle had stood there seven
centuries; so strictly speaking, he
needn’t ever leave their property –
even on quite a lengthy journey into
the past. ”
