"Chester Royde, an American millionaire, travels to Scotland with his new bride Carrie and sister Myrtle, to find out more about Carrie's Scottish ancestry. Their new 'relatives' turn out to be a little more authentically Scottish than they bargained for. Ben Nevis, Laird of Glenbogle Castle, is fiercely protective of his lands and the Macdonald clan spirit, but being cash-strapped he's not above attempts to marry heiress Myrtle to one of his many brawny sons. However, Ben Nevis is distracted when a group of hikers stumble on his moor and spoil a days hunting...sparking all-out war between gentry and commoners."

A delightful slapstick comedy, sometimes borderline silly, but picks up again and will make you laugh out loud—frequently. Nothing whatsoever to do with the (quite boring) TV series, by the way. Looking forward to more of Compton Mckenzie's books!

I'm watching the video series from netflix; so far series 1-4 and can't wait to get the next installment. The characters are wonderful.

Might have been side-splittingly funny during the war years. Now it's dense, boring and heavy handed in it's humour.
