About this deal

Molly helps Jess train for a competition for the glen's best ghillie, as Jess tries to show Golly how much she is trying to impress him.

Even when the makers make choices that could be termed interesting and are definitely frustrating, and take the show in some unexpected directions in later seasons, you find that you've become so attached to the characters that you'll follow them to the end anyway. If you like slice-of-life stories that involve relational and financial conundrums, you'll probably like this.

Golly faces a battle with Fergal to keep Duncan as his friend and assistant because Duncan is very taken with outward bounds activities over the fieldsport traditions of the estate and Fergal's charismatic enthusiasm. Meanwhile, Jess, who feels that Golly is taking her for granted, participates in a strongman competition. My first preference would have been for the 1982 version starring Anthony Andrews and Olivia Hussey, as I'd seen clips of that and they looked decent. It just goes to show that the lead in a successful tv show isn`t necessarily a guarantee of fame and fortune. Ever since Meg passed away, Golly has been taking care of baby Cameron as a single parent, with the help of his daughter, Jess.

Hector was no financial genius and had run the estate into the ground before handing the place over to his son to avoid death duties. Archie and Stella prepare to sell derelict cottages to conman Stuart McIntosh who has his eye on Lexie. Although skeptical at first, Paul too soon finds himself captivated by the mystical creature and the magical power it seems to have. Archie's plan for a Glenbogle Tourist Attraction is rejected by local councillor Edith, Hector is forced to go and charm her. Lady Dorothy plans to build an Eco-Dome, but needs access through Archie's land for her plan to succeed - Lexie is suspicious and goes to investigate.Amy, Donald, Iona and Ewan help Paul impress Viktor and his wife Catriona, while Golly hurts his back and Molly comes to his aid.

Acorn Media UK produced the original DVDs, but in 2006 a box-set featuring all seven series on 22 discs was produced by the BBC themselves. Golly has to decide whether to give his new son Cameron away to his late partner Meg's sister or whether to keep him. The BBC box-set only featured a making-of show titled The Last Monarch, which was broadcast on BBC Scotland before the series finale on 23 October 2005.Lexie starts to think there is a ghost in the house, while Archie attempts to renovate Jamie's old room for a future child of his and Lexie's.

Meanwhile, after an old diary emerges, it appears that Katrina is in fact Hector's daughter; distraught with this revelation, Molly decides to move out. The series was always shot with an eye to the beauty of the Scottish countryside, and even when it is pouring with rain, the photography by Ken Brinsley, John Hooper and John McGlashan is memorable.Lexie wonders whether she has what it takes to be Laird after Archie leaves Glenbogle to go mountain climbing in Nepal with his sister Lizzie in honour of their late father.
