ROYAL MACNAB: One Hebridean estate, two stories of changing times
1823: Alec Macleod, heir to the Uishall Estate on the Isle of Lewis, steals a morning of pleasure with a crofter’s daughter – and soon faces agonising choices in his struggles to ensure family prosperity.
2001: Uishall has lost its clan ties and is now a syndicate-owned sporting estate battling the twin threats of land reform and poaching. While a Royal Macnab challenge is planned for the coming season, rock star Natasha Tang plans to buy neighbouring estate Maglavat and ban blood sports.
A changing social order, the search for love and the unbreakable ties of past and present play out amidst the thrill of the hunt and the wild landscapes of Lewis and Harris.
