Synopsis

Ian McCrae is the son of a keeper/woodsman who is employed on a large if almost derelict estate in Wester Ross. Its dereliction principally due to its sinister recent Past. He is first educated at the one classroom local school, but from there wins a scholarship to the regional High School at Dingwall. It happening at almost the same time as the estate itself witnesses a belated return to normal life. Then while out beating for a grouse shoot he meets the Laird's daughter. A girl of about his own age, and as a result of two unusual incidents while they are together they find mutual attraction. It only proves a beginning though, when over the following six or seven years, including those of WW2 their relationship becomes a fragmented off/on affair, before by enlisting the aid of that sinister Past he finally able to justify his number origins in her father's eyes.
