A Scottish Treat

AdvantagesLight hearted drama to brighten dreary Sunday evenings

Can't wait for the new series

AdvantagesOriginal, great locations

Disadvantagesnot on every day!

The characters are funny, Duncan the hopeless would-be ranger, Lexie the trendy cook...Susan Hampshire and Richard Briers are brilliant, experienced actors with impeccable timing and the story lines are original - something pretty unusual in tv drama these days. I tune in every ..." Read review
