"American millionaire Chester Royde is in Scotland with his new bride Carrie and sister Myrtle to research Carrie's Scottish ancestry. Their new "relatives" turn out to be rather more authentically Scottish than they bargained for. Ben Nevis, Laird of Glenbogle Castle, is cash-strapped and fiercely protective of his lands and the Macdonald clan spirit, but he's not above attempts to marry heiress Myrtle to one of his brawny sons. When a group of hikers stumble on his moor and spoil a day's hunting, it sparks an all-out war between gentry and commoners. "--Publisher's description

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.
