    It’s so hard to choose a single place or object, but after a lot of thought I would choose Pompeo Batoni's magnificent portrait of Colonel William Gordon at Fyvie castle. Showing a tartan clad Scottish soldier in full Highland dress standing proudly before Rome, it must be one of the most remarkable portraits of the 18th Century. This in 1766, only 20 years after Culloden, when the wearing of tartan was still forbidden! Such self confidence, not to say arrogance, deserves to be an heirloom.
