How in the world was I not aware of this series! It is in its eighth year! Eighth!! Do you any idea how many knitting hours that means!
Here is the outline of the first year -
While trying to carve a living out of the London restaurant he runs with his girlfriend Justine, Archie MacDonald is called back to his Highland home, to the bed of his dying father,Hector. When he arrives, however, he finds that the news of his dying father was just a ploy by his dotty mother, Molly, to get him to Scotland and tell him face-to-face that he has inherited his father’s large estate and castle, Glenbogle. Archie faces a tough decision: whether to help the debt-ridden Glenbogle, or to return to Justine in London. Archie meets the local school headteacher, Katrina Finlay, with whom he finds he is set to have a love-hate relationship. The feisty staff of Glenbogle —- Lexie, Golly, and Duncan —- also prove hard to handle, and Archie’s eccentric parents are difficult. To please all, Archie faces the challenge to save Glenbogle.
I’ve been watching the series via Netflix. If you enjoyed Downtown Abbey, you will love Monarch of the Glen!
