Sarah MacCallum, manager of Urray House in the Highlands, said: “We were a bit surprised when Mark and Quentin arrived outside with a forklift. 

“We didn’t know they were planning this surprise for their dad. It was a little cheeky of them but we were all delighted.

“It was quite an ingenious idea but we won’t be encouraging other relatives to follow their example.”
